Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a small, white foam head. Some lightly sugary pale malts in the nose, subtle dough, straw. Light sweet flavor, mellow straw bitterness, a bit more light dough malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, clean finish with a very restrained character overall, just nips of dry straw and faint, white sugar and dough. Quite a nice little pale lager, this. Exactly what I want after a strenuous gym session.

Bottles usually seem really flat with little bubbles, on the other hand it’s easy on the stomach and not too fizzy

660ml Bottle. Bought because it was on offer. Pours a medium white head over a light golden body. Aroma is lager malts and a slight citrus hint. Tastes like a standard mass produced lager with a sweet fizzy finish. Unremarkable mass produced standard lager. Nowt wrong with it but nothing to go crazy over either.

emartell (240) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2012
Aroma casi nulo con ligeros toques florales. En cuanto a la apariencia, color amarillo pálido, corona de espuma ligera pero de larga retención, carbonatación alta. En cuanto a boca, las primeras notas identificadas son ligeramente amargas y refrescantes. Al paladar lo refrescante se hace notar. Al principio destacan ligeros sabores amargos, mismos que posteriomente dejan sabores dulces al paso por la garganta. El final es ligero y frutal. En general una cerveza refrescante y diferente, aun que para nada de las mejores Pale lager que existen.

(Bottled) This shit is ok "ice cold swill ".... sometimes I wanna drop the pretense ,note pad and goblet and slum it . Corona is my swill of choice but the fact that this isn’t as sweet as normal Fosters ,with a long bitter dryness , makes this ok ....like once a month only.....

Thebeerdude (29) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2011
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Bottle. Pale yellow colour, faint aroma, okay taste for a lager, was refreshing and better than regular Fosters if there’s a choice between the two.

Thin, watery, slight metallic taste, slightly unpleasant on the palate, I suppose this is meant to be drunk straight from the bottle, but I don’t see how this is a "premium beer"

swooper (1248) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2011
0,33l bottle not bad light hoppy aroma, why is caled gold if it is yellow pale...frothy, white foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, a bit sharp bitterness, not very smooth, medium body, average carbonation, I dont know, strange flavour, nothing exiting

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
300ml clear glass bottle. Yellowish appearance. Warm, damp straw aroma. Soapy, lemony flavour. Little hop bitterness or aroma - saccharine bitterness. Soft, almost creamy/soapy carbonation, but still unsettles the stomach and creates wind. Grainy, cereal notes. There’s little to commend this. But it is drinkable.
