lokis333 (375) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 17, 2016
Clear golden color with strong white foam. Aromas of are sweet of rum and sugar snaps with a little light spice of cinamon mixed with lager malt. Palate, medium/light body with thin texture and surprisangly flat! leaving light sweet, with developing dryness finish. Tastes flat and sweet with notes of spice and water (very watery) Overall, surprisable drinkable without off flavours or off aromas.

undercurrent25 (1931) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2011
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 (1247) - 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 (5538) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, 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.

Bottle. A slight improvement on normal Fosters, but mainly a drab effort. Golden with a medium sweetness and easy to drink.

LED40 (96) - SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2014
A decent standard lager. The aroma is faint hops and cooked vegetable with a dark yellow appearance. The taste is typical for the style - easy drinking and refreshing with a hint of caramel. The mouth feel is thicker than the standard Fosters but not as carbonated and the taste is also slightly improved. Overall nothing bad about this but certainly not exceptional.

Poor beer, it’s something you would drink at a party when all the good beer has gone. Great colour but lacks depth, favour and punch.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
On tap. Sparkly, but that feeling goes away too quickly. A bit rounder than many other pale lagers, but in general too much influenced by the characteristics of industrial beers.
