Bottle. Pours clean golden with almost no head Aroma is weak, some malt and very small amount of hops. Taste is malty with a light bitterness. Not so good beer.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2015 Uwaga poczatkujacy!. Piwo aromatyczne, czuc amerykanski chmiel. Moze nie jest super pijalne ale ten aromat jest jak dla mnie czyms zupelnie nowym i intrygujacym. Ladna etykietka, nedzna piana ktora szybko znika. Polecam na poczatek przygody z piwami smakowymi. piwo jest dosc drogie.

This beer is golden - yes, but other than that it is nothing more than a forgettable, fizzy and slightly bitter ale. No trace of the promised cascade hops.

33 cl bottle@home in tulip glass@ approx 8 degree C. Pours golden with small white head. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Nice balanced taste for a beer with this low ABV, malt and hops in harmony, finishing off with a floral hoppiness and a slight bitterness. Well made product, but not very exiting.

33 cl. bottle from Fakta discounter. Clear, deep golden colour with a fine, bubbly white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, toasted and pale malts, light hints of caramel. Taste is lightly bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes drying and slightly bitter with fruits, caramel and grasses. Crisp and enjoyable.

GoufCustom (965) - HONG KONG - MAR 31, 2015

330ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in K11, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear amber colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of Ale malt, with grapefruit, light toffee, marmalade, floral, sugar, yeast, light crackers and grass; Close to light sweet taste of light Ale malt, with grapefruit zest, light molasses, carbo, spices, very light crackers, strong lemon, fair bitter hops and pretty light grass; Mid to light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is pretty light Ale maltyness in a light, close to watery background. Grapefruit is zesty but a bit fake. Good bitterness echoing throughout but peters out quite quickly. Quiet spicy and light on yeast. Easy but a bit lightweight… Hoppiness is grapefruit, floral, marmalade, light toffee in nose. Light citrus, spice and strong lemon in taste. Bitterness is omnipresent but light and empty for an abrupt mid-astringent fruity finish; Slightly dry after taste. Fruity and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its cascade and First Gold hoppiness is quite obvious in aroma, but rather underwhelming in taste really. Lack of other hops and other ingredients gives it less room to impress. It’s easily drinkable and nothing more. Just pass the okay marks

Barwa to jasne złoto. Piana kiepska, szybko opadająca. Aromat bardzo słaby, jest lekka słodowość, lekka owocowość m.in. jabłko. W smaku jest pusto i wodniście, co poprawia pikalnośc i to chyba jedyny plus. Goryczka niska.
