berkshirejohn (4487) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Another ale from Mallinsons that has the look of a good pilsner - pale straw with a pillow-like white head and fairly heavy carbonation; however the lemony aroma gives the game away; this time, the taste is immediately sharply bitter with a lemony tang and a slightly grainy body; then a long, dry, satisfying, finish. Another excellent golden ale.

yngwie (13508) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. An unclear, yellowish golden beer with a dense, white head on top. The aroma is mostly on the citrusy side, with a good dash of orange. Pale malts in the back. Medium body, quite dry, with pleasant carbonation and a nice bitterness. Some pale malts and orange too. A quite straight forward and easy drinkable one, but lacking some complexity. Wouldn’t mind drinking more of it though. 130216
