A malty pale golden beer with hints of banana and pineapple. An excellent balance of aroma and bittering hops followed by a long dry hoppy finish.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 17, 2012 - on handpull at The Charles Dickens - as Hogs Back Hop. Clear coppery gold with a small creamy off-white head. Smells like grassy corn syrup with a bit of alcohol - taste follows, slightly harsh. Slick and syrupy and thin on the tongue, very little carbonation, with a harsh sweet finish. Not nice.

tombyars (1511) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and cut grass in the short aroma. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit note laced with soft caramel. Floral hop resins give a herbal note to the long dry aftertaste. Finish is again dry with lemon fruit notes present. An ok session Golden Ale.

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle. Bronze beer with a light fizzy head. The aroma is biscuity, and the flavour is biiter, lightly roasted and hopped with a mild yeasty finish. Overall a very average beer.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2011
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden yellow colour with small white head which soon dissipates. Aroma is grass, buttery, almost potato-like maltiness, caramel and a hint of fruits. Butter, malts and caramel on the taste also. Very lightly hopped golden ale with a watery mouthfeel and a dry bitter aftertaste.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 04/2012.
Pours a copper colour with a very small head. Aroma of grainy malts, honey and grass. Flavour of grainy malts, nuts, caramel and grassy hops. Watery mouthfeel with a mild bitter finish. Boring.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
0.5 l bottle from S-Mestarin herkku, Jyväskylä. Copper color. The aroma is combination of resiny hops and nutty-caramelly malt. The flavor is a bit more on a malt side with caramel and nuts. Resiny hop flavor is restrained and bitterness is at medium. Light bodied, smooth oily palate with low carbonation, very drinkable. At first this feels a very nice session ale but at half bottle the character feels bland. More hops and less caramel would be truer to name.
