500 ml. bottle. Pours a mostly clear pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is citrus, tropical, malt, and floral. Would be a nice summer beer.

larsga (7102) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2016
Small white head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Floral minty toffee aroma with sugary pine needle notes. Dry-sweet spicy peas and flowers taste with toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish orangey peas aftertaste with mealy floral notes. Odd, and in parts it’s great. Grew on me as I drank. Surprisingly Lithuanian. (0.568l cask, at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen.)

Very little on the nose discernible. Very clear, almost a washed out look to the beer. Not too bitter, a beer to enjoy that could quite easily be quaffable.

allmyvinyl (8807) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear gold with a thick white head. High carbonation. Aromas of butterscotch and lemon. Taste is lemon, astringent malt. Thin finish. Disappointing. Probably better on cask, to be fair.

Towey1989 (1504) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity of grape, lemon zest, sweet honey and some spicy hops. Taste of grape, slight melon, lemon, maybe some orange, honey, subtle biscuit, caramel and spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and flat to soft carbonation. A bittersweet, honeyed, floral hop finish. Really surprised by this, complex for a golden ale. Little sweet and flat but nice.

Gravity at Bardfest 2015. Golden with a white head. Nice strong lemon citrus aroma. The taste is sweet and lemony. some bready notes in the finish. Nice summer drinking.

If you favour a beer with lemon/pineapple scent, this is for you. Pale gold body. Thin head that laces well. Neutral at first but sharper and tarter as you sip. The back taste is fuller than the fore. Thin on the palate and meant for summer. And probably a hotter one if served chilled. Not to be repeated.
