Smells sweet, almost like cotton candy with a hint of metal. Golden, clear color. Taste is almost missing, and the taste that is there is not anything special. A pilzner at best and I don't like pilzners... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent enough taste. Quite smooth and not overpowering. Pretty average overall and not one that will last long in the memory banks. - Rated with Beer Rater for Windows Phone

Bottle Labelling "Gold". Bought from Asda in Tain at a bargain £1.25. Drunk at the bottom of Ben Hope and well earned! Lovely golden beer, very crisp and thirst quencing, citrus notes. Slight hop note and honey hints. Very very nice.

Very mild, slightly stale aroma of hops. Pours a nice golden colour with a white head that fades. The taste is pleasant however; hops, malts and something slightly sweet likew banana. Flavours are well balanced and it leaves a pleasant aftertaste. It also feels smoother in the mouth once it has settled. Difficult beer to rate, I didn’t like it at first but it grew on me and I’d try it again.
