maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottled 12/11/12. A golden coloured beer which poured with no head. Citrussy fruity with a soapy element. Peach and tropical fruits in the mouth. A bit of sticky marmalade. Not bad.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber, with a decent, white, head. Aroma of citrus hops, stone fruits and grainy malts. Flavour had more fruits, a slight yeastiness, biscuity mlats and a decent, bitter, finish. Enjoyable.

Graham77 (425) - SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2016
500ml. Full flavored blonde ale. Not really to my preference though. Sherbety lemon and maybe banana on the nose. Hoppy flavors of citrus and pine without being at all bitter. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Quite good.

ManVsBeer (8689) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Halifax. Tawny-gold with a thin head. Hopped with a slightly dirty taste, there’s a sugary sweetness in the nose with some caramel here as well as its flavour.

rosenbergh (10399) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeastiness, sweet maltiness and fruity hops in the aroma. Metallic notes, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very low carbonation. Was this really an American Pale Ale?

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottled 500ml from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Gold with white head. There is a thin corny note to this, hints of caramelisation, a slight herby hint perhaps. Thin throughout but ok.

The_Osprey (6351) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
500ml bottle BB 09/15. Orange amber, clear, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light citrus, lime, gooseberry. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is very light, watery, some minerals but mostly just water. Served chilled as suggested on the bottle, but this removed all flavour.

dynamiteninja (1825) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Gold to orange body. Thin white head. Nose is tangerines, champagne, wheat, Belgian yeast, crusty bread, oranges, spice. Bittersweet. Dry finish.

SarkyNorthener (4071) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle from M&S. Golden beer with small head. Aroma of fruity hops and citrus. Taste is citrus, a little caramel and some floral hops. Ok beer.

Garrold (4253) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Lightly hazy, gold colour. Film of white head. Bready malts. Light toffee. A hint of clove spiciness. Taste is malty sweet. Hint of dry. Soft, creamy palate. Finish is a bit insipid, but I enjoyed this more than I thought I might.

MichaelAwesome (6458) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Shared with McTapps. Good one with balanced bitterness, some hops and bread in the aroma. Followed by a bit spruce, some vanilla and butter. Finishing off with a fine citrus aftertaste.
