nilsas (3523) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2014
Duft av humle og eik. Lys gyllen farge. Tynt hvit skum på topp. Frisk og lettdrukket, noe svak søtlig ettersmak. Greit drikke øl i sommervarmen.

ERB92 (650) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Light toffee, fruits and citrus in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Overall a totally OK Golden/Blond Ale, but nothing to remember here.

djoeye (3800) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2014
From the spout a pine forest of hops to the nose, plus (elder-)flowers, then citric scents a lot. Head vanished as a ghost. Golden alright body. Sweet malts of wheat to the tongue along with lemon, grains, hops, and something flowerish fruity. Gentle to palate, fresh n fruity. Dry sweet and mild bitter end, malty notes too. Serve it chilled, but it tastes well also at 10-12’c. Fine p-ale to food or snacks. 500ml brown bottle 4.3%abv b@Kjeller5, tasted@home.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Glencoe Village Co-Op, Highlands. Hazed gold with white head. Malty bitterness on the palate, there is a corn like flavour, some sweetness. This leads to a soapy lemon flavour along with resin from a bittering hop. There is a light metallic note in the close. It’s ok.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2013
500ml bottle picked up at Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Firm white head, mostly diminishing. Near clear, golden body. Lacing rings. Floral hoppy nose, quite fresh and fruity. Citrus flavours on a backbone of mid-sweet wheat. Dry bittersweet finish. Soft in the mouth. Fine partner to the chicken food. Quite nice golden ale with session qualities (at home 01.11.2013).
