3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle (4,2% ABV). Pours hazy yellow with nice white head that gives plenty of lacing. Aroma is fruity (citrus and a bit of elder) and hoppy. The same goes for the flavor. It is fruity (citruses), light and refreshing. It has a modest bitter and dry aftertaste. This beer really delivers what it is advertise on the label. Overall a very refreshing summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from drinkstore. 4.2% ABV. Pale blonde, white head. Body is very clear. Hay and lemons in the aroma. Nuanced and pleasant flavour, cereal, toast/bread, faintest hint of sweet caramel around the edges. Theres a little grapefruit bitterness there too. Nicely dry. More soft than medium carbonation, fairly light in body and coats the palette nicely. Very drinkable this.

bottled. nice try but i still dont like golden ale-yes im rating to style . ...This has a perfumed aromatic quality slightly like Chablis but that’s where it stops cause this has subtle finesse but nothing exciting . boiled sweets..toffee or caramel i cant tell the difference . lemon hops ..peppery ...lightly sweet .

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, 0.50l. Pours slightly hazy deep straw with small frothy white head and lively bubbles. Aroma of fresh floral hops, citrus and some tropical fruits. Taste starts fresh grainy, then followed by rich fruity notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while aftertaste is pleasant moderate bitter. Medium to full body, slick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Absolute winner when I compare low alcohol volume and very rich taste...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at The Bartons Arms, pours a clear yellow with a small white bubbly head. Aroma of light floral notes, subtle English hops, and some slight citrus. Flavour brings out lemony notes, some light cereal notes, and light floral hops. Pretty light and weak, but inoffensive on the palate. Decent, drinkable stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Colore oro. Schiuma bianca, aderente. Aroma fresco di agrumi e frutta. Nel palato molto equilibrata con un attacco maltato, bene supportato dalla luppolatura e da un finale secolo. Sentori retro olfattivi agrumati e floreali. Corpo leggero.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Beer O’clock II, Bucharest, Romania. Hazy amber with a minimal white ring. Very hoppy aroma: mango, passion fruit puree’ and toffee. Tastes bitter, chewy with a hint of sour. Light-to-medium body, nettle-like finish and very carbonated, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 A very pale blond bitter with a thin and light head. There are clear hoppy aroma but there is not a strong bitterness, there are various subtle flavours to this beer but none seem to enhance the classic bitter style, instead they mellow the flavour and make this a pleasant hoppy session ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Soft pineapple and rice cracker nose, with a clear and still very pale yellow body and no head to speak of. Very stealthy initial taste, watery and soft over diluted hop with more pineapple vibe, with a few chunks of mango creeping into the middle. Little road bump of malt as the melony vibe continues to a dry tang but an equally soft finish as the start.</br>
Supremely drinkable in an unengaging and inoffensive way.
