Malty butter citrus aroma. Heavy golden clear brown body. No head. Bubbly like a soda. Bold sleek slippery feel. Lightly roasted malt with a hit of bitterness and spice.

Golden yellow but no head - slight carbonation. Decent aroma of citrus fruit. Smooth on tongue and in mouth. Refreshing. Maintains fruity taste with slight fizz. Enjoyed.

Of Morlandís Family of Henís, the Golden is a very different style. Now This Ale packs a lovely grassy, floral aroma which is not overpowering but remindís me of a summer garden, this drinkís best quality by far. It pours Golden, but weak liquor, clear, looking pretty much like a run of the mill lager. In the mouth itís soapy, very thin okay carbonation and watery substance. On the Taste buds itís actually very drinkable, Mild, and soothingly refreshing, with hints of Clementine, lemon and melon, but mild in malt, or hop volume, but still an amazingly laid back, easy going thirst quencher which is easy to get to know. A summer drink.

50cl bottle. Aroma distinctly reminiscent of lemonade, with some butteriness. Pours brite, bubbles rise nonchalently through a golden boy, white foam atop, dissipates to a think skim, laces lazily. Light. Gentle bitterness - nettley, grassy, but nicely subdued in both senses. My evaluation somewhat overpowered by food - barely picked out a malt backbone.

From the clear bottle 1 pint 9 oz. bottle. An attractive golden pour with a modest, short-lived white head. My bottle was probably skunked so the aromas I get are tainted but I am picking up that Scottish Highland mineral water, pale malts, maybe a touch of orange, and vague grassy hops. The body is smooth and a bit better than light. The taste has a golden malt character with a clean hop finish. Typical for the style but not anything that stands above it all. Still decent enough.

500ml bottle at home. Pure golden clear colour with a decent carbonated white head. Notes of bread dough, malts and light sweet fruit. Sweet finish

Gładkie. Delikatne cytrusy w aromacie. Nienajniższa goryczka, niskie wysycenie i doskonała pijalnosc.

Clear liquid, strange colour. Small head. Aroma of citrus. Light body, no carbonation. Taste is sour, sweet and bitter and very weak.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Bottle in a sampler pack as a Christmas gift from Surdykís. This does not smell pleasant. I canít tell if that?s purposeful since most English beer is pretty skunky. It?s got a very pale, piss golden color to it. Minimal head. Unfortunately, the taste is pretty much exactly same as the aroma. Borderline awful. Lots of pilsner elements and a bitter grain overarching presence. Like a frat party keg beer if there was frat party keg beer in England. Bitter and not satisfying whatsoever. Avoid.
