Pours clear golden with a white foamy head. Aroma is floral and orange hops. Taste is citrus, mild bitterness and some smokeyness. Not overly complex, but tasty.

Holmen1 (3543) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2013
Flaske delt med Willy: Fint men kort skum over en lys gylden. Snev av sitrus i aroma. Behagelig og lett bitter med nevnte syrlighet. Frisk men kort avslutning. Helt ok tørstedrikk men heller ikke noe annet, til det er den for enkel. Vår egen Battleship Galactica har mye mer smak av galaxy-humlen.

tmongoose (1672) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2013
12oz bottle shared. Pours golden yellow with white head that dissipates quickly. Light carbonation. Aroma is light malt. The flavor is breads malt and some mild fruit concoction. Do get some mild hop flavor in the middle and a touch of bitterness on the end. Overall a mild beer and not bad.

scotty (1088) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2013
Nice looking, clean gold with a reasonable white head. Pronounced citrus fruit nose, these are also present on the palate, a bit too much for me, makes the beer a bit unbalanced. Not an awful brew, but not one I’d buy again.

Aurelius (4657) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Clear, orange-tinged gold brew, clear bottle, good label, thin, filmy head. Hoppy, lightly candied UKPA aroma with a little diacetyl. A bit skunky at first. Fairly bitter, in a simple fuggles/golding sort of way, maybe some muted US or continental stuff in there as well. Very lightly sweet, a lemony edge at times and a certain bready starchiness to the malt. Medium to slightly light body, average carbo. Finishes out with mild citrus peel bitterness. Enjoyable, more of a warm weather brew. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

KyotoLefty (7556) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2012
500 ml bottle. Big burst of skunk when opened, though balanced a bit with caramel malt and citrus, grass hop. Clear amber, low bubbly head. Nicely fruity andnhoppy, with light caramel and good bready malts. No skunk here. Decent, but they must lose the clear bottles.

U didn't think i would but I like it. Light golden colour. Smells a bit peachy. Tastes nice, refreshing citrus/ peach note to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is rather lager like with mostly a bread like malt and a tiny touch of grassy euro hops. The appearance is golden with no head and mildly carbonated. The taste is like the aroma but easy to enjoy as a session. The palate is typical of the style. Overall not bad but nothing outstanding.
