John_A (7) - - DEC 31, 2011 does not count
A little fizzy, but makes up for it in taste. A smooth ale with clear lemon and spice overtones and a pleasing aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Bottle from Jacobs på Holtet in Oslo, Norway. Golden colour and light hazy, with a white head. Light fruity and citric nose. Mild caramel flavour with a good fruitiness that makes it very fresh.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2011
In bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel, honey and barley. Similar flavours with a nicely floral hop character. Nicely bitter. Little oily mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. OK.

Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This one pours a clear pale golden body with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is quite fruit-yeasty with notes of citrus, heather honey and mild caramel. Mild and nice. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a mild and oily mouthfeel. Nice flavors as well. Mild caramel flavored with hints of honey, grass and a thin and dry bitter ending. Not a bad bitter, but perhaps a bit boring.

Dorqui (2156) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 16, 2011
Bottled at "Osteria della Birra" - Bergamo (BG).
Golden yellow color, much elegant and crisp. Very good head of medium resistance, bubbly and lively aspect. Little sour nose, rumors of fresh mellow, aged white flowers, very malty and balsamic final. Crisp and little warm body, little woody and bitterish final.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
50 cl bottle, BBE 06/2012
Lots of toffee and honey in aroma. Mouthdrying palate at the start. Flavour has sweetish, bitter toffee and some spices. Surprisingly thick palate for 3.8%. Good bitter.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a large white head which collapses quickly. Aroma of toffee and honey with some mild hops. Flavour of raw hops, some citrus and caramel. Quite long, dry and bitter finish. I’d say this is more of a Golden Ale.
