"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Lovely light golden colour. Nice lasting soft pillowy white head. Noses of hops and fresh cut grass with a hint of coriander-citrus. Texture is light oily bit soapy reminding again faintly of coriander. Medium body, lightly sweet with hints of floral bitterness a truly lovely balanced beer! Finish is long but pleasantly un-noticable, still lingering.

Very light and really pale gold body with a fair white head. Aroma is fruity verging on a grassy finish. Quite a a malty taste with a fruity berry like finish which feels quite hoppy. Quite a decent beer!

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2012
0,5 l bottle. Definitely fruity, surprisingly and extremely refreshing. A bit bitter at the end, but an easy to drink beer at all.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Pale golden colour, some white head, fruity and malty and a bit of zest. Malt is there but not over powering. It’s quite crisp (definitely in refreshing territory) and it has a component of apple and some yeasty spice. It’s actually a very good beer although it isn’t a pale ale (as listed). It’s too light and too crisp and fruity.

Can’t say much about the appearance as I drank it from the bottle once I had climbed to the top of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. Refreshing, light, with a bit of apple at the end of the taste. Very decent.

Bottle from Finland. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, malt, hops and notes of citrus.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - APR 18, 2012
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Ditemi quello che volete ma a me è piaciuta molto. Aroma di biscotto di malto e citrico. Per quanto riguarda il gusto, l’etichetta recita (tradotto in Italiano) : " Una Pale, citrica, con una struttura di malto e un gusto floreale di luppolo". Effettivamente è prorpio così. Dannatamente rinfrescante e beverina.

500ml bottle. Pours light clear yellow. Pungent pineapple, pine aromas, very much hop driven. Sweet crisp palate, again, pineapple, some lime, with a drop of hay. Short bitter hop finish. Overall, the taste beats everything else hands down...

ClubGonzo (4903) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo. Pours a clear golden body with a medium creamy white. Nose is lemongrass, lime and hints of pale malts. Refreshing. Taste is a bit strange; some stagnant sweet malts, citric tones and hints of herbs. Full body, as surprisingly as advertised. All in all a strange but OK golden/blonde.
