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.

Garry_Evans (59) - HONG KONG - MAY 26, 2015
Nice IPA close to being a British bitter. Drunk at room temperature from pint glass; 500ml bottle bought from Fusion supermarket in Hong Kong. Appearance is cloudy yellow-brown with big soapy coloured head. Aroma of lemons and coriander, very hoppy. Very dry on the palate, but nice softness with low carbonation. Tastes of walnut, grass. Lacks nuance but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (1536) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Bottle sampled at Björn, thanks. Small beige head. Light clowdy golden color. Big fresh flowery hoppiness. Sparkling taste with fresh pale maltiness and a tuch of metal. Lasting bitterness.

magpieken (104) - - MAR 13, 2015
500ml bottle. Best Before 24.09.2015. Slightly opaque pale gold colour with a towering, frothy, ice cream like head which refused to reduce, wonderful lacing. Assertive aroma pine forest, grapefruit, passionfruit with a malt undertone. Beautiful balance of medium sweetness and a shade more bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lively carbonation and a long bitter resin finish. Very enjoyable but left me feeling very gassy. 8.

spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam , St Petetsburg. Lovely beer. Aroma of hops, yeast and citrus. Medium carbonation, citrus, wood notes, very bitter hoppy finish. Packed with flavour for such a low ABV. A lovely cross between an English bitter and an American Pale Ale. Would make a great summer session beer.

jamestulloch (1922) - 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 (287) - 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 (1119) - 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, it’s 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 you’re a hop head, you should be well satisfied. A very nice golden ale indeed.
