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

wozap (203) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 15, 2015
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.

commonmac (510) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Bottle in a sampler pack as a Christmas gift from Surdyk?s. This does not smell pleasant. I can?t 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.

JoeMcPhee (8788) - 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.

arsol (714) - NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Klar lys brun farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter malt og mye sitron. Lettdrikkelig ale med sitrussmak. Syrlig også som avslutning.

This would probably be better for a mid summer thirst quenched, not a cold night in November.
