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

MichaelAwesome (5559) - 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. Itís quite crisp (definitely in refreshing territory) and it has a component of apple and some yeasty spice. Itís actually a very good beer although it isnít a pale ale (as listed). Itís too light and too crisp and fruity.

Canít say much about the appearance as I drank it from the bottle once I had climbed to the top of Arthurís Seat in Edinburgh. Refreshing, light, with a bit of apple at the end of the taste. Very decent.

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

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2012
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 (4624) - 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.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Nose of light citrus and grass in with pale malt, light tropical fruit. Hazy yellow-orange with a creamy, rocky white head. Softish medium body, medium bitterness is much more reminiscent of intense grapefruit than the effects of hops, though the dry hopping is noticeably green. A little tart/acidic, and some abrasive scratching of the tongue (again, squeezing all kins of fun bitterness out of the fruit there), and with some vague fruitiness from the yeast. As a pale ale, somewhat weak and one-dimensional; as a golden/blond ale, a standout.

Golden colour, white head. Aroma of caramel ands citrus. Flavour of fruits, caramel and bitterness. Was bettered by many similar ales today.
