660ml bottle pours a slightly hazy straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some light grains and hints of pineapple. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with some light malty and fruity sweetness with a hint of tart from the pineapple. Very nicely balanced brew with a light body and moderate carbonation. A fully flavored beer which satisfies the palate while being easy to drink. Very well done.

vanelst (147) - AUSTRIA - AUG 5, 2014
bottle. Aroma of citrus, grass and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with citrus, grapefruit and pineapple, heavy bitter and dry finish. Smooth, refreshing and rather excellent. My nomination for best summer beer of 2014.

Hop_Hedonist (246) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2014
Pleasant enough - just needs more! ...Of everything - a bit more malt to give a bit more body and some more hops to amp it up flavour and complexity - don’t get honey or elderflower as commercially described - watery but refreshing - Reasonable overall golden ale considering the lower abv - my preference is still Boneyard Golden Ale as best of the style in Australia.

TommyFi (101) - ITALY - APR 7, 2014
Color giallo dorato, limpida. Schiuma fine e pannosa ma poco durevole. Carbonatazione da cask ale, bassa che ne puoi bere a litri. Odora di pompelmo e frutti tropicali, di pepe nero e una punta di piccante. In bocca è liscia, esce un pò il gusto maltato ma viene subito sopraffatto dal luppolo che ha un finale deciso e molto persistente ma non troppo amaro.

A beautiful, powerful grapefruit & tropical smell. A bitter taste that builds to a crescendo of ultimate hoppiness! Those who like their tongues ripped out, salted & rubbed on a lemon will love this. Others, not so much... Rated by BrewTom

Pours hazy yellow with a smooth white head. Aroma of zesty fruitness, citrus, malts and grassy hoppiness. Taste is smooth, hoppy and fruity with zesty juicy notes, grapefruit and citrus. Finish is smooth, hoppy and lingering bitter with juicy grassy hoppiness. Nice, hoppy and tasty golden ale.

dfearnley (965) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle to tulip Wheat, bread, lemon, hops, and molasses. Clear, light yellow with tons of carbonation creating a fluffy and frothy long lasting 1.5 cm white head. Taste is straw, lightly roasted malt, lemongrass, and a nice light, but constant hoppiness.

Unde (358) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Clear light yellow looking ale with smallish head. Aroma has lots of bitter grapefruits, flower notes and sweet tropical fruits. Taste is sweet with tropical fruits at first then turning into bitter grapefruit and citrus in the end. Light body and crispy carbonation makes this an easy to drink and easy to enjoy. Great bitter golden ale.
