JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly spicy and refreshing. A little bit of citrus and some nice clean malt. A touch of spicy hoppiness and a little bit of lingering fruit. A pretty simple, refreshing brew.

Klar lys brun farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter malt og mye sitron. Lettdrikkelig ale med sitrussmak. Syrlig også som avslutning.

Aroma: very intensive aroma of tropical fruits with some biscuits in the background Taste: low bitterness, hoppy Carbonation is too soft.

GeoffClaridge (8) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014 does not count
This would probably be better for a mid summer thirst quenched, not a cold night in November.

rondphoto (2301) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with an ivory head cover, bands of lace. Taste is malt that adds molasses in the palate, then turns to a lightly bittered finish. The semi-sweet takes this away from Golden Ales, but it is refreshing on an autumn evening.

Lagerboy (1336) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
500 ml clear bottle. Clear brighter orange copper, off-white foam fades fast. Bready malty fruity smell, some skunk. Taste is slightly sweet toasted pale malt with a fruity hoppy tropical tang, somewhat lifeless and oily. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. A better British blond.

campbega (94) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours golden amber with a decent white head that lingers. Citrus, malt and tropical fruit aromas. Bitter and hoppy finish. OK beer but nothing special.

UXO (420) - CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours clear medium gold with two fingers of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is citrus, fruit, grassy hops, pale malt. (6/10) Taste is balanced moderate sweet and bitter. (6/10) Light watery body, low sustained carbonation, short bitter finish. (3/5) A decent enough English bitter, if tending to the boring side of the style - which, let’s face it, is already pretty boring. At 4.1% ABV, it’s obviously a session ale, and the light body and low carbonation accentuate that. Definitely in the “inoffensive thirst quencher” category, and very similar to a plain old lager. And what’s up with the clear bottles, anyway? There’s no chance mine’ll be light-struck, since my cellar is completely dark, but not everybody is as spoiled as I am. Sure, it shows off the colour of the beer to maximum advantage, but that’s a poor tradeoff for some punter thinking your beer tastes like skunk if the bottles get mishandled at all, innit? (12/20)

wlajwl (4069) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Aroma is pale malts, fruit and a hint of hops. The flavor is fruit, pale malts, slight off-flavors probably from the clear bottle and hops/citrus/light tropical fruit in the finish.

Arek (209) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle 0,5 l, ASDA, Bournemouth, England, UK. Złote piwo o obfitej i puszystej pianie oraz intensywnym, cytrusowym aromacie. W smaku cytrusowe z posmakiem egzotycznych owoców oraz chmielową goryczką na finiszu.
