lusikka (6532) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2014
500 ml bottle. BBE 15 March 2015. Pours a copper amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of strong citrusy hops, orange pith, floral notes and grass. Flavour of really crisp citrusy bitterness, pungent herbal notes, very mild sweetness, some popcorn, biscuit and orange pith. Medium bodied and extremely high drinkability. Better than their Amarillo.

The Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Summer Beer Fest. Clear gold beer, little bubbly white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Clean malt, not grainy. Nice Apollo hops. Medium strength. Citrus, a little marmalade and a trace of lemon. Dry finish with a marmalade bitter linger. Decent and drinkable.

Cask, CBC, brixton. Clear, deep gold colour with white fairly creamy head. Honey, biscuity sweet malt aroma. Some hops too but not as much as expected. Sweet toasted bread malt taste, honey again and fruit hops followed by some citrus bitterness. Well balanced and pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle) Crystal clear, light gold. Pours thick, white head, diminishing, but lasting. Mid-light carbonation. Aroma - Intense, spicy, american hops; grapefruit and a fairly strong tropical aroma; lychees! (yum!), and a sweet, bready/biscuity malt: Nice, balanced, sweet and fruity aroma, fairly strong. A pretty creamy body for this strength, quite oily too, bit of light carb on the tongue and lips. Good tropical and spicy hop flavours, sweet malt, with a slightly dry, refreshing finish. Nice balance, though just a tad sweet (but pleasant). Very drinkable, without compromising on flavour - Crouch Vale seem to be pretty good at this with their golden ales and bitters.

Cask @ the Wharf, Aalborg. Clear light amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and rather hoppy - peach and grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. Fantastic for such a low ABV. 110212
