jandd1983 (2563) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Sampled at TWCP Beer Fest 2013. It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was lightly hoppy with malt, fruits with hints of honey, grass and caramel. The taste was sweet and lightly fruity with a somewhat bitter finish. Decent.

fellebag (798) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle 50cl. Small inviting white head. Clear pilsener color. Aroma is autumn cascade hops and rottening leaves. Bitter taste of hops, cascade again. Sense of malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

SarkyNorthener (1947) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with medium head that reduces to nothing. Aroma of bread and citrus. Taste is bready and citrus. Slightly too carbonated on the palate. Refreshing, saved for a nice warm day like today.

Golden yellow pour with a thin fading white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is light caramel. Little dry finish. As it states on the bottle, it is refreshing.

allanvw (2) - Liverpool, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013 does not count
bottle from waitrose stores. Dark gold appearance, thin head did not last. Aroma clean and fresh with floral notes. A lively beer with a light bitter taste and a dry finish

thornecb (4396) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours deep gold into an English pint. White head with good retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Initial skunk aromas subside to reveal caramel and butterscotch. Medium bodied with sweet candy corn upfront turning to mild, bitter earth in the medium length finish.

Down2die (108) - IRELAND - APR 4, 2013
Bottle from as a. Love the challanger hops in this. Seems to be chock full of aroma hopping spruce and citrus on the nose.Lovely rich golden colour. Not much carbonation on the bottle or head or lacing. A nice finished beer but not something I?d enjoy drinking all the time

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours deep gold with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is fairly heavy skunk, floral/herbal, fruit... Taste is lightly bittered caramel, flowers, light fruit. Will try this again, a little suspicious of how it rated....might be I got a bad bottle.
