FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2014
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) "Golden Beer made with Cascade Hops"
Soft sweet honey-ey popcorny aroma, lemony, some rosewater. Watery palate, feels watered down, crisp carbonation. Taste is honey, sweet popcorn, and, erm that’s it. Finish has reisdual carbonic acid, a little gluey sweet. Pathetic and watered down. Scroll past this one.

pentaz (949) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
Bottle as "St. Edmunds Golden Beer with cascade hops" @ DeleteBeach. Pours clear amber with virtually no head. Aroma is biscuit, paper, grass, caramel. Taste is light sweet and bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes light sweet.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is fruit light malt. The flavour is light bitter with a malt hop bitter light citrus palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not too dissimilar to the Noble craft lager!

ElectroMod (87) - - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle from Tesco Broughton. Pours a clear gold colour with a quickly dissipating soapy white head. Aroma is citrussy and hoppy, a bit lagery. Taste is slightly better, slight dry hoppy bitterness and a crisp citrus flavour. Overcarbonated for my taste. Seems to be another cheap attempt by the big brewers to cash in on the popularity of craft beer. Bland and uninspiring, suppose it?d be a nice enough summer day beer but nothing spectacular going on anywhere here.

martin00sr (234) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Clear golden, airy white head. Bready aroma. Taste is slightly dry, floral. Dry, short finish.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 4.2%. Citric, lagery aroma?! Clear copper colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is papery. Has a little green apple. Seems isotonic, but is not exactly salty. A little watery, but acceptable for the ABV.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of flowers, hops, and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with flowery notes and mild citric touches. Bitter aftertaste. OK but nithing very impressive.

terefere (143) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Pours golden, clear, small head. Rather weak but pleasant aroma of lychee, citrus, bubble gum. Taste of grain, grapefruit, lychee, a bit of cereal. It’s nice to drink but still a bit bland in taste.
