sir__v (890) - Lille, FRANCE - APR 26, 2015
On tap @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: clear pale blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: hoppy and grasy domination. Notes of litchi and peach. Pineapple finish. Taste: very fresh taste, grassy and pineapple. Small litchi finish. Hoppy, easy drinkable. Aftertaste: grassy and litchi with pineapple. I like the small ABV, 3.8 it’s perfect !

shoestring (302) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
Very light straw colour. Nice head which paces throughout. Lively looker . Fizzy .very citrus. Refreshing light and fruity. Not disappointed by fyne yet again. Do agree slightly with comment below that too many golden ales are jumping on the citrus bandwagon .

didierlewallon (210) - ponferrada, SPAIN - APR 13, 2015
Cerveza de color amarillo dorado con una pequeña cabeza blanca. Aroma con fuertes notas de lúpulo y limones. Sabor afrutado suave con un final seco y amargo, muy refrescante y excelente cerveza.

BlackHaddock (4556) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
This beer was all over Edinburgh when we visited last year: but this review is from 2015. 2nd April, half-pint in The Fighting Cocks, Oakengates. Light golden body with a thin white head. Citrus hop aroma and taste. I have said enough times I am fed up with golden beers that are citrus flavoured and this is yet another of them that is flooding the UK market. This one however seemed better than most and I almost enjoyed it.

jjsint (1184) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Cask at the Manor Arms, Broughton-in-Furness. Light yellow with a large white head. Grapefruit aroma, slight tropical fruit. A hint of soap. Taste is bitter but not intensely so. Long finish as a light citrus bitterness lies on the tongue. A tasty hoppy golden beer.

Zlotta (215) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
0,5 l bottle from Scotia Spirit, best before august 2015. Minimally hazy, pale golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Nice, citrusy aroma of lemon zest and orange with hints of vanilla. Very refreshing, slightly bitter and citrusy taste of lemon zest, grapefruit and pineapple as well as cereals and vanilla. Good! Crisp, medium bitter finish. Thin body but not watery, spritzy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very refreshing thirst quencher and easily drinkable. Very fruity, quite complex but not overcharged. No need for a radler anymore!

dnicolaescu (1090) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 26, 2015
BOTTLE 33CL. Almost an ”alcohol free” beer, being at 3,8% ABV and a few days from its BB date, the aroma is very intense and clean, with sweet fruit, light citrus, honey sweetness and some grassy notes. The flavour is not too bold, but not even close to being watery. It is dry, with just a hint of honey, lots of hops, no prickly CO2 or tannins. There’s a touch of aspirin-like harshness in the bitter finish. Very nice. [backlog 20150124]
