ClubGonzo (4023) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Lerøy Mat Galleriet, Bergen, shared with Foffern. Pours a golden orange body with a small white head. Nose is fresh elderflowers, pale malts and hints of grass. Taste is grass, pale malts and strong herbal astringent notes. Not very balanced, and the flowers are nowhere to be found. Medium to thin body, medium carbonation. Pretty "meh", all in all.

olio (6171) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 28.05.2014.
Pours clear golden colour with small, large bubbly head. Grassy and somewhat herbal notes on the nose, fruits and pale malts also. Flavor of fruits, butter, dry pale malts and hay. Quite slick palate with a very dry finish.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of honey, dandelion, maneuver and grass. Flavour of grassy hops, weird buttery notes, grass, pepper, strong dry hay, smoked wood(!) and sweetish malts. Light bodied, medium carbonation and a lingering, oily, honey-like and bitter finish. A bit weird.

Graham77 (233) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Aroma of elderflower with a biscuity background. This is a pale golden colour beer with a good head which fades quickly. The taste is zesty with again a biscuity malt background. A well balanced beer and really quite refreshing.

Foffern (1225) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a golden straw colour with a small off-white head. Have a nice and sweet aroma of elderflower, citrus and some spices and bubble gum. The taste is a bit faint but I still find a little spice and something that is reminiscent of dandelion. Is a little strange in the end. Mouth feel is light and smooth, and has a lasting medium bitterness. The aroma is good, but the taste feels a little unbalanced.

Imaena (1823) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
This is a great golden ale with nice hop bite and some good biscuit malt flavors.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Clear golden body with carbonation. Floral earthy aroma with elderberry notes. Dry citric floral taste with strawy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry herbal wheaty aftertaste with dusty mealy elderberry notes. Nice, if perhaps a little bit too bitter. The elderberry is fairly subtle, don’t think I’d have picked it up, if it didn’t say on the bottle. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

mzaar (1610) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
Flaska. Guldfärgad, lätt bubblig, med mediumstort vitt skum. Doftar citron, av något sött parfymigt, så fyller också en örtighet på. Mycket märklig och kort smak. Det är mest jordigt, lite dammigt - och bakom detta anas citron och gräs, men de får aldrig plats att mer än anas.

esp0r (1980) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2013
Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Golden, bit white head. Smells of malts, spice, hints of spices and floral perfume. Moderate sweet, quite fruity for a golden ale, malts and wheat. Medium bitter, green grass and leaves, some resins and alot of that perfume like elderflower and citrus they have put in this beer. A strange beer - not a total failure but not a success either
