A fantastically citrusy ale with lots of floral notes, which is so refreshing and easy to drink. This is my favourite sunny day beer, a really tasty golden ale.

Gorgeous orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is soft citrus. A bit if peach. Galaxy hop has a nice note. Although there's no excuse for using clear bottles anymore. This one was slightly skunked. Good though.

Bottle from Morrison’s in Chester-le-Street. Golden in colour with a floral citrus fruity flavour followed by hints of burnt toffee and a caramel and light bitter hopped finish.

clear 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark gold with a one finger white head. The head fades rather quickly but leave ok lacing.
Really no skunk in the aroma which surprised me a little with the clear bottles.
Caramel and toast on the nose with a little bit of corn. Fruity hops that definitely take on a tropical tone. The galaxy hops really show themselves.
The flavor on this is really great. Tropical fruit right from the get-go but there is a wonderful malty backbone. Toast and caramel underneath with some pale malt. A little bit of pipe tobacco too. Bitterness is moderate with the passion fruit lingering throughout. Mouthfeel is light but makes the beer extremely drinkable.
Overall, a wonderful, flavorful session beer that I could drink all day. If I could pick this up locally and it was cheaper it would be a go to beer for me. US breweries really need to take a closer look at this style.

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

500ml bottle from the LCBO, Hen House gift pack. golden with a white head. nice citrusy aroma. the flavour is fruity, hard to tell if its the malts hops or yeast, everything just works so well together. wonderfully hoppy golden ale.

500ml bottle courtesy of Tesco. I've been enjoying this beer for a while but only now have I got round to writing a review. It has a lovely golden appearance as its name suggests, with no real head and little lacing. This is a beautifully refreshing summer ale, packed full of flavour. Its very smooth and not overly hopped, but there's that hint of hoppy bitterness in the palate and the aftertaste that goes well with the grassy honey fruity flavours of this beer. Don't be tempted to over-cool it and destroy those lovely flavours. Leave it to warm for a short while after taking it from the fridge. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed and it's excellent value for money.

Bottled. A golden coloured beer which pours pretty much with no head. Very juicy zesty hops in the aroma with pink grapefruit. Just a touch of cardboard. It’s the same in the mouth. Again zesty and hoppy. A bit of peach now. Nice for sure.
