3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Bright and fresh aroma, pouring a slightly hazy blond. Presents a zingy grapefruit pith with a good use of citra. Refreshing but perhaps not as lively in the taste as I’d like, perhaps even being a tad watery. Still an enjoyable beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Clear, blond pour with a small white head and good lacing. Nose and flavor are lovely, with soft lemongrass, a hint of citric bite, lemon, touches of biscuit. Clean and effervescent. Immensely quaffable and really pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light orange colour, a head is quite weak and white. The nose is tropical, mangos, some papaiyas and gooseberries, nice fructose. Taste is slightly tropical but not so fresh as aroma, pine needles, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, easy to drink. Not totally convincing beer, taste should be more fresh. Well, easy and tastefull, anyway.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky gold, moderate white head; lovely aroma of satsuma and other citrussy hops; taste is lemon, lime; the hoppiness is in the austere, challenging bracket rather than the much preferred lush, generous bracket; very bitter; just not my bag.

In short: a yeasty golden ale.
Pours hazy bright gold with nice creamy white head, dense, good retention, poor lacing. Citrusy, herbal, pine and some butyric nose. Taste is hoppy, some sweetness, citrusy, mild bitter and yeast notes. Reminds me of a low abv belgian ale in character.

Aroma: some citrus hops, very light malts, some yeast. Appearance: hazy dark gold, small thin head. Taste: light sweet, but some bitterness as well. Palate: low carbonation, bitterness gets stronger over time, pleasant fruits appearing. Overall: OK Golden Ale, not my favourite though as a bit too bland. Bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London.
