Kurtos (179) - Sydney, - FEB 8, 2013
Aroma. Very feint tropical fruits aroma. Appearance. Pours a golden colour like the name would suggest. Taste. I can taste banana and citrus flavours, and surprisingly some alcohol flavours. Overall. A good beer, best enjoyed on a nice hot day with some fish and chips.

Gyllengul till bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av säd, jäst och lättare malttoner. Lättare gräsig beska tillkommer i smaken.

An easy drinking ale, nothing to crazy. Kind of boring but smooth and easy to put back.

On tap at Charming Squire, Brisbane on 7th September 2015. Gold with off-white, lasting foam top and lacing. Fine citrus aroma. Grapefruit in-mouth with soapy touch. Citric, floral and slightly soapy finish. Zingy mouthfeel and light body. Pleasant.

On tap at Campus Club, Nathan. Amber with little head and a bit of ale yeast on the nose. Tasty and smooth drinking, suitable for mass consumption due to dryish finish.
