Bottle from Aldi Scottish Beer Festival last year.
Lager coloured, quite fizzy but not overly so.
Big, bubbly head. Slightly citrus aroma.
Tastes of biscuit, little sugary lemon. Bit of hay.
Really quite nice and would be a smashing summer day session beer.

500ml bottle: BBE Oct 2015. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home during Mar 2015. Golden body with a white topping that hung around for a while.
Aroma of fruity biscuits, the taste had a slight citrusy flavour with grapefruit and orange notes coming through. Decent and pleased I bought it from a Scottish Aldi last year while visiting friends.

A rather frothy pour of a gold ale. Aroma, fresh citrus and floral notes. Taste, citrus sharpness with a mild bitterness to the finish. Rather nice, just need enough glass space for that froth!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden beer with a thick, frothy head and a light, grassy aroma. Initial flavour is a sharp, floral grapefruit hit and a sweeter citrus touch in the back of the mouth. A pleasant, balanced bitter backtaste lingers even from the first couple of mouthfulls.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from Aldi. Light golden ale with plenty of bubbles - fizzy like a lager.
Malt and orange on the nose with bitter citrus aftertaste. Not the best, but perfect with crisps or nuts.
