bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange-amber color with 1 inch head that fades fast but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pine/spruce, yeast. Taste is piney/sprucy, fruity, citrus, some cereal qualities. Texture is thin and soapy. Light to moderate bitterness. This is a good session beer but a bit on the fruity side.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2009
Draught at Platform Bar, Brisbane. Pours golden with a lively white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, citrus and hop notes. Medium bodied and OK bitterness in the finish. A good session beer that takes on slightly more character on draught than in the bottle.

Two words: TOO SWEET. Like all James Squire beers it’s technically excellent, but to me this lacks balls, is sickly and made me retch. Bloated the hell out of me too. Good if you like sweet beers, but definitely not my thing.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle. Amber or golden colour. Some discreet malts and hops in aroma. Likewise in taste. Pretty much what you expect in a golden ale. Quite sweet aftertaste. Good enough for a lazy afternoon by the pool

ComradeK (1071) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2009
On tap at The Lansdowne Hotel, Sydney. Pale gold in colour, with a smooth, fine head. Fruity aromas predominate. The flavour is highly hop-driven. It is mostly floral hops, but some smooth fruity hints. A good one for a muggy Sydney summer day.

TerenceHua (87) - , SINGAPORE - MAR 9, 2009
Refreshingly light golden coloured beer. Nicely carbonated with grain, malt and citrus aromas. Its flavour mirrors its scent, save that the hops are very evident on the palate. A bit thin and dry though.
