rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and good condition. Some grainy malt, honeyed sweetness and a pleasant peppery spiciness in the nose, full flavoured and grainy in the mouth with a solid hop bitterness and a slight grapefruit citrus note. Finish is chalky with a lingering dominant hop bitterness.

worldbeertaste (1621) - AUSTRIA - APR 3, 2012
Light gold with a lasting frothy white head. Smels flowery with citrus, wheat and malt. Medium sticky body. Slight sour element to the taste of citrus but mild compared to an IPA. Dry hoppy finish, with a bit of plastic. Sweet taste that finishes bitter. Goes down easy. Refreshing.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight note of dusty hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a thin digestive bisscuit base with weak citric notes of grapefruit peel and gooseberry. Strong dusty hop resins give an intense bitter aftertaste with floral notes. Finish has a slightly sweet edge of golden syrup but this fades fast as it runs out of legs. A decent enough Golden Ale but lacks depth and complexity..

Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour with small beige foamy head, that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is sweet malts, bready malts with some slight herbal and fruity notes. Flavour is being quite much similar with some quite citrusy notes. Pleasant.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle: Brilliant gold with a wheaty white head. Fuddy and yet hoppy aromas. Smells watery somehow. Grassy. The mouth is rather tastily biting but with a very mellow straw-like finish. Very green, a little fruity, a little sour. A little over fizzed leading to some belching. Pretty good but darned boring.
