bhensonb (12447) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle from BevMo. Bottled on 03OCT08. Gold color with a substantial white head. Aromas of honey and fruit. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is clean with some grassy hop. That touch of honey - flavor, not sweet - stays to the end. It is just a bit bitter in the finish. AB does a great job, just not very picky about which job, but this is a good thing.

(Paired with sushi) Clear golden body with small white head. Aroma is light and sweet, some bread. Taste is light, sweet and watery. Minimal bitterness that's in the swallow. It's not bad, but it's certainly not worth seeking out.

imdownthepub (11377) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2007
Tinned, 500ml, at Wagamama’s Reading. Pale gold with white head. I’d forgotten this one. Thin, corny, malt lager with little hop character. Some sweetness, quite tinny, metallic. Doesn’t really appeal.
