kamwitsta (148) - POLAND - APR 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 The aroma isnít very strong, mostly of citrus, with a little hops and a little floral. Yellow, a little hazy, unstable head. More sour than bitter. Medium body, next to no finish, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but not something Iíd have to come back to.

berkshirejohn (4903) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
50cl bottle from the brewery. Golden amber with a billowing white head; unpleasantly gassy; but with a good tangerine fruit taste and a crisp and clean bitterness to finish.

Tmoney99 (11463) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle shared by Dave. Poured hazy yellow color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium herbal sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Cask Pint in The Rake, Borough, London in July 2012 - Yellow Golden in colour. Very Fruity; tangy citrus lemon and orange. Hoppy; resinous and grassy hops. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Fruity citrus hoppy throughout leading to a long dry citrus bitter finish. Liked this a lot. Nice Golden Ale!

Nice, but a bit of disappointment. A good session beer, with a quite good aroma, nicely refreshing but.. the body is very thin, and I thought the aroma is going to be exceptional, while itís just ok. Also the bitterness is at ok level, but it would help it a lot had it been twice as much bitter. I had pleasure in drinking this beer, but it sure could have been better. After a while I noticed that I did not pour the whole bottle into my glass, so I did it and tasted the beer which was actually about 18C warm - and I think the beer benefitted from this temperature, as it gave a little bit more taste and even bitterness.

Vaiz (3709) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fresh citrus, some pine, crispy British hops, lemon peel, quite fruity and clean, very light. Flavor is fruity, quite bitter, sharp and tasty hops. Thin body, but very well drinkable.

MiSiU (22) - Bosutow, POLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Clear bright pale beer. Small head that quickly reduces to tiny layer staying till the end and marking the glass. Fruity, hoppy aroma (tropical fruit like). Very light and refreshing beer with adequate bitternes to make it a great refreshing drink.

Bottled, BB Jan 2015, large sample. Slight hazy yellow to golden color, medium frothy slight off-white head. Aroma of soft flowery and citrussy hop, some biscuity malt, hint of pine. Medium bitter in taste. Has that typical minerally UK feel to it as well. Nice tasty stuff.
