Pretty easy drinkable beer. Easy to forget also. Colour was it’s best feature for me.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Hazy gold/orange colour, fairly sized head. Will also give a small note to the rather quaint, half-psychadelic label - I approve. Aroma is impressively complex, sweet with hints of bitterness, quite floral and citrusy. Taste is wonderful - citrussy, hoppy, grassy. Very tasty, but with a bitterness underneath that adds a lot of depth and character. Beautifully balanced, very hard to fault. Impressed. EDIT, 31/12/12. Keg at North, this time - found it a lot more impressive than is remembered. Really complex nose, great taste, great palate. Added 1 aroma, palate and overall point.

JDBaker11058 (1567) - Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Appearance: hazy blond, with a decent whitish head and generous lacing. Aroma: sweet, grassy, floral and a little wheaty. Taste: grass and hay, with citrus, flowers, and a little biscuit; more bitterness than the aroma indicated. Finish: dry, lingering light bitterness over crackers. Notes: Seemed like a middling Belgian Pale Ale, rather than a golden or blond. Palate was on the watery side.

25 cl, tap @ Poatersgat. Blonde hazy beer with nice lacing white head. Aroma of hops, bitterness, orange peel and citrus. Taste is hoppy, grassy with cirtrus notes in it, and a malty background making the beer milder. Orange peel and other fruitiness also comes to the foreground towards the beer. The aftertaste is nicely bitter. Only one remark: Taras Boulba is better :-)

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Geruch zitronig. gewürzig. Antrunk leicht säuerlich, Gewürze. Mittig verblassende Säure unter dem Eindruck vermehrter Würzigkeit. Hefige Töne im Hintergrund. Staubig-holzig und immer bitterer im Abgang. Gut gemachtes Bier. Test vom 19.6.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Oak aged version. Dark yellow, hazy with tons of particulates. Bready, yeasty aroma, light lemon. Bitter hops, light citrus in the flavor. Finish is bitter, grainy.

Ernesto987 (4755) - Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Very light smoke flavor going on in this beer. blond beer with all that goes with blonds, light, and not much going on. Not really my style but its a good rep of the style.

A golden, fragrant beer with nice, foamy head and plenty of bubbles. Smell is honey, hops and some coriander, taste is a dry hoppy pale ale with a slight belgian character. Lightly peppery, fresh and quite bitter. Big hop flavor. A simple, but excellent golden ale.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a murky, orange hued body with a large and creamy, just off-white head. Good lace and full retention. Aromas are fruity, estery, citrus zest, lemon and orange. Malt profile is toasty and grainy. Hops show themselves as grassy, earthy and spicy. Mild sweetness and restrained phenols. Flavors are malty with a dry and pronounced bitter finish. Light citrus and earthy notes. Medium to restrained esters (for a Belgian). Toasty and grainy malt profile. Lively carbonation builds up an otherwise thin body. Lingering bitterness.
