Great nuttiness and smooth texture. Strong body so couldn’t have too many. Awesome colour too.

A little on the "wheat" side of taste for me at the beginning, but it really grew on me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good one, like it so far, some malty, but nice even imported. Will drink it more often

Golden (as it says) with gentle bubbles and a thin lacy head. The nose has beautiful rich mango aromas. The taste i of more mango and guadeloupe melon with a background maltiness. The palate has decent texture and structure with a clean finish. Overall, this is a lovely beer, though I’d say it was more of a pale ale than a lager.

Better alternative to Export Gold, smells and tates so much nicer. Easy to drink and everyone’s happy.

My sister brought this one back from New Zealand. Nice sweet aroma with faint hops. Good citrus character. Fairly normal pour, with quickly disappearing head and golden colour. The flavour is nice, not exceptional but a good citrus hop flavour followed by some good bitterness. This is a great dinner beer, or for watching rugby. I like it.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
330ml Bottle BB 10 Oct 2012: poured @ home into a Westvletren chalice on 07 Dec 2012, some two months after its best before date. Looks OK: good deep golden body with a white covering that tries to hang around, but as in most beers of this style it fades to a wispy swirl and collar as you attack the beer. Grainy nose more than hop or straight malt: taste is leaning towards malts, biscuity and semi-sweet. Crisp body and nice hop finish: easy drinking lager and with enough flavour to interest me. certainly one of the highest scoring lagers I’ve had since joining this site.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle by SEP-12. Lightly sweet, very malty nose, pours a gleaming clear golden with tons of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is sweet and malty, lightly grainy with faint fruity and vanilla accents in the deep bg. Crisp but relatively smooth, clean light body, fresh and refreshing. I seem to like this a lot more than everyone else.

Actually quite liked this for a lager described as "A golden malty lager with mellow hop characters and cashew nut smoothness" and that was about right. Seemed a typical boring lager but there was some faint hops and cashew nut like taste to make it a little more interesting. Would drink again
