A very pleasant drink. Grapefruit and orange, with a honey aftertaste. A summery drink as per description.

Dunkelgolden, leicht mild-weich, schön fruchtig & Ale-aromatisch. Nicht zu tief, aber süffig - frisch! Lecker!

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Golden and clear with low carbonation and a small head. Pleasant but not a lot of flavour which makes it quite disappointing.

dutchtuga (130) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
Average ale. Flavours of citrus, hay and some sweet. Not very special but overall very drinkable.

500ml bottle. pours a clear amber with head that lasts. aroma is of dough, straw and hops. lots of hops. nice smooth, full mouth feel. perhaps a little watery and over carbonated for me but over all, a good refreshing ale.

A nice taste golden ale but not spectacular. More fizz than i care for me. The color is actually quite a lager straw colored instead of a deeper golden color. Smells of buttered popcorn though so that's pretty awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (1050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle from Vino Wines. Clear golden body with a thin white head that fades. Light carbonation. Nice lacing. Clean aroma of straw and citrus. Flavour is simple and refreshing - lime and grapefruit with a slightly spice in the finish. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle. A lovely Golden Ale - light and refreshing.

wimpyjoe (2955) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Golden-orange coloured ale without a head. It has plenty of sweet tropical fruit flavours in aroma and taste but with an acute bitter aftertaste.

Niall73 (1054) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. bb 06/14. Pours a very clear gold-amber colour. Aroma is toast, a bit malty caramel with some sugary candy sweetness. Light to medium body, medium+ carbonation. A little bready, with tangerine, orange, caramel and a lemon, medium bitter finish. Fine.
