4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. Clear pale golden with a nicely remaining lacing white head. Fantastic expressive nose. Wonderfully hoppy with hints of gooseberry, a huge amount of strawberry, dried apricot, lemon peel, sweat and pale malts showing up- suddenly mint and liquorice allsorts emerge. The strawberry component is rather present in the taste too. Nice hop profile. Good bitterness. White pepper, hay, baguette and pear sneaking in. Complex. Licorice and earthy hops showing up on the swallow leading to a dryish finish which is reminiscent of rose and lemon peel. A top notch Golden Ale. I reveled in every sip.

Deep golden. Flowey aroma. Light bodied, soapy mouthfeel, hints of vanilla. Citrusy and bitter finish. Flavourful and refreshing.

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.

Lightly hazy straw, big white frothy head, ok lacing. Earthy hoppinesd, hay, malting with nuts and bit wood, slightly roasted caramel, bring czech beer to mind. Medium body, really is surprisingly full feel, soft, semisweet and bit bitterish, long finish dries. Nice and malty, enjoyed.

Golden honey colour with big thin white head. Lemon straw biscuit and slightly biscuity taste. Nice wee tickle on the tongue
I’ve had more interesting beers but this is hitting the spot just fine.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2003 Bottled. Straw gold, moderate head and a little too much condition. Pine needle and hop resin nose reminded me of Deuchars, sweet grainymalt and good balancing hop flavours and a good quenching hop bitter finish. Did I mention Deuchars?

Bottle (in), pouring a light golden colour with a foamy white head. A nice and healthy fruity hop aroma on a bed of juicy malt. A light mouthfeel, with the hops doing a good job of giving it a fruity flavour while still leaving it very sessionable. Just enough bitterness in the finish to bring you back for another sip. Surprised this hasn’t rated higher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Fruity floral mealy hoppy aroma with citric malty pea notes. Fantastic harmony. Dry-sweetish floral citric peas taste with peppery mealy grassy notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Clean, fresh palate. Fullish body. Dry chalky floral straw and malts aftertaste with pea and biscuit notes. Excellent and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Bottle from Tesco. Revamped label, very well presented. Oaty resin aroma. Pale golden yellow. Dry citrus resin oat flavour. Lively carbonation and fresh bitter aftertaste. Used to love this one, now it is only just good, tastes change.
