durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle for $2.29 at TJs in Carrboro. Weird. Pours medium gold with a thin ring of white foam. Just a touch hazy. Nose shows biscuit, honey, grass, and some noble hop-like character. Still, clean malt is more in charge here. Taste adds a mild sweetness. Easy drinking and surprisingly good.

jamestulloch (1735) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy orange body with lots of yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of watermelon, grapefruit and floral hops. Flavour of grass, earth, lime and a light, bitter finish. Thin body with an oily texture. Weak fizz. A solid Golden Ale.

christhoel (265) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Pours lightly hazy gold with a small, frothy and bubbly white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, light earthy and spicy, minty hops and faint pear esters. Flavor is balanced malt and hops, medium bitterness and a crisp, dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. not very good if you ask me

Maris (1070) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2015
Pours a opaque light golden with a biggish white head. Has a lovely floral nose with some zesty citrus fruit and honeyed notes. Flavour wise, itís light and fruity with lots of sweet and sour citrus (mandarin, lemon, grapefruit) with sweet bready and grassy malt in the background, which is followed by a very assertive, dry, slightly salty hop bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. For something 4.2%, this is a really heavy hitter. The bitterness may be too much for some but if youíre a hop head, you should be well satisfied. A very nice golden ale indeed.

JoeZasada (296) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Bomber bottle. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a frothy, thick white head. Moderate carbonation. Sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is hoppy, some grass, warming to a resin/citrus like bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Finish is grassy bitterness, with some fruity sweet tones. Very interesting, not like any other golden/blonde ale Iíve ever had. I like it, but not sure itís classed correctly... more like a hoppy extra special bitter, or an English IPA.

Bootlegger007 (91) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Cloudy golden appearance with light particles and a large frothy/creamy lasting like ice-cream head, very fruity aroma very tropical with massive grass notes, flavour was also fruity, hoppy and bitter, lightly acidic on on the tongue leaving a bitter aftertaste, loved it very fruity 6 months ago I would have rated very differently. Thanks Hitchy good choice, swing 92.

Cask at Draft House. Pale yellow, slight haze, small white head. Aroma has lots of lemon tart. Body is medium, smooth. Taste is earthy, medium bitterness. Decent. Barman loved it and I can see why - very appetising aroma.
