Garrold (2349) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Clear gold. Bubbly, white head, that doesn’t hang about. Bit of a syrupy, custard thing going on. And that’s how it middles, and ends, really. Not great.

olliejobbins (1287) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
my favourite local "lager" for availability/price. clear gold pour with thin white head. aroma is weak citrus fruits, quite floral and crisp hops. smooth refreshing hoppy taste with a slightly citrussy after taste. yeah it’s not exciting but very easy to drink and refreshing.

Bottle from Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is sweet grainy, weak grassy hops. Taste is sweet, honey and grainy with a spicy, perfumed and grassy heavy finish. Strange brew.

Gorm (1677) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2015
Klar gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt, gress og humle. Smak av malt og fruktig humle. Fruktig, lett bitter og med en metallisk ettersmak. Det Gode Brygg.
