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

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, - APR 27, 2009
Bottle from Centra. Clear golden beer. Avoids the usual trap of British golden ales, as it is not too sweet. Well balanced malt and hops, cereals, citrus, crisp finish.

nihtila (1158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
22.11.2013. Mieto tuoksu, sitrusta raikkautta ja hieman humalaa. Makukin säilyttää miedon linjan. Hieman makeahko mallas, pikkaisen humalaa. Aika varovainen esitys, mutta toisaalta tasapainoinen eikä tässä mitään vikaa ole,

shoestring (297) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Not unpleasant. Amber with nice head. Mown grass light citrus. Preferred to other couple of Orkney blonds I’ve had

Bottle. Light and fruity with a metallic citrus flavour. Lacking in character.

Moebbels (412) - FINLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow body with a quickly settling white head. Nose has fresh citrus notes, hay and resin. Taste is mildly bitter and dry, finishing with a smooth, lingering bitterness. Carbonation is on the lower side ad palate feels suprisingly full. A nice, refreshing drink!

massingasetta (351) - München, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
The pour, smell and optics are all good to very good. The foam crown is solid but not lasting. Tastes like a British pint through and through. Slightly bitter and more tasty in smaller doses. All in all a good but not overwelming beer.

47574xeCD (429) - God’s Country, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle at Home. Lovely clear amber ale with a decent white frothy head. Hoppy malty notes, not massive hops but noticeable. Semi fruit finish, dry finish. Not Twig, pleasant.

LED40 (76) - SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Notes of citrus and grass in the aroma. Pours nicely carbonated with a golden appearance and white head. The taste is sweet with medium hop bitterness and hints of apricot noticeable. The body is fairly thick but overall a highly quaffable and refreshing drink if not remarkable. Quite lager like in a lot of ways but overall far superior.

gegwilson (1690) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Amber with a thin off-white head. The taste is light citrus with a weird tobacco after taste. Can’t say I overly enjoyed this one.
