Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Nice golden color, packed with malty flavors, but super smooth....Probably my favorite golden ale too date!

Tognetta (720) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 2, 2016
Amarelo ouro quase translúcida. Esouma branca de média formação e persistência. No aroma malte evidente, mel. Paladar de médio dulçor, leve amargor. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Tende a aparecer mais o amargor com o tempo, mantendo o mel, mas corpo muito leve. Razoável.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze ciemny zloty z obfita biala grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie niezbyt intensywnie, troche miodu, trawa cytrynowa i kwiaty. Gdzies na koncu lekkie cytrusy. W smaku owoce egzotycne, karmel i slody. Wysycenie i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Nie ma fajerwerkow ale lekko schlodzone dobrze wchodzi.

Muggus69 (2115) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
355mL bottle from Dan Murphys. Clean deep gold body, sudsy sort of head. 3 Pleasent sort of malty nose - pale caramel, toast, honey, slight floral (hop) character. 6 Medium-light body, carbonation probably a touch high for style, touch watery on the finish. 2 More of the toasty, honey sort of malt on the body, moderate bitterness, finish is dry, lingering minerality. 6 Doesn’t do what it says on the packet (Galaxy hops!?), but it is past its Best Before - not particularly exciting. 11 2.8

I_LUV_BEER (176) - - JUN 9, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a thick off-white head, decent lacing in the glass. Aroma is toffee, tropical fruits, grass and a hint of lemon. Taste is very crisp and refreshing combination of mango, caramel, lemon zest with a crisp clear finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Extremely nice and refreshing brew!
