A quintessential golden ale brewed for refreshing easy drinking. Our soft Highland water allows the full floral flavour of the hops to come through the beer.

Hermod (3139) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2012
50cl bottle, BBE 12/2012. Poured clear golden with a white, lacing head. Aroma has citrusy notes and malt. Flavor is fruity and malty, citrus and some floral notes. Decent bitterness. Slightly watery, but OK body still for such low ABV. lacks the freshness the other beers have had that I have tasted from this fine brewery.

from le Mondial de la BiŤre 2011, Strasbourg - hazy dark blond beer with a poor head retention; herbal and slightly piney hoppiness; thin-bodied and with a moderate carbonation; a decent herbal bitterness and a quite long lasting finish

pivnizub (8793) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle: Pale golden to golden, hazy, big and stable rocky white head, sticking to the glass, solid dry and tart grapefruity and floral hoppy nose; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, not watery, quite soft; lingering grapefruity-bitter finish. A bit harsh, but nice indeed.....

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
500ml brown bottle. Golden pour, fairly clear, some haze. Frothy white cap, dense, good retention, good lacing. Nose has fruity malts, light citrus hops - getting lemon and orange. In the mouth the beers has a crisp pale malt base, mild citrusy bitterness that carries into the finish. Soft fruitness and a light mineral note. Light body and soft carbonation. Nice session ale.

BenH (2245) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2011
Tap at cask. Golden with white head. Nearly no aroma. Nearly no taste. Not offensive I suppose. Practically water

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
500ml bottle pours golden in color with a finger of white head which leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and floral hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with a light floral hoppy bitterness throughout. Surprising amount of body given its ABV and some good carbonation as well. Overall, this is a pretty good blonde ale and it was a pleasure to have sampled this one.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle. Amber with a soft sea froth. Looks like an for a pub pint. Light aroma but full flavour and mouth feel. Attractive hop bitterness sets it apart. Nice grapefruit note. A bit of peppery hop spice.
