MichaelAwesome (6332) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2015
Das Sinnbild eines Golden Ale. Mild und ausgewogen, leicht blumig, etwas im Getreide und Hopfen. Dazu ein guter Schuss Vanille.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from beersiveknown, thank you, Steve. The beer has got a deep golden colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of malt, hops and fruits. Taste of mild hops, fruits, malt, bread, vanilla, straw and flowers. Mild hoppy finish. Nice one.

AshtonMcCobb (4993) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance -golden with a light haze and a decent head. Nose - tangy orange and light yeast edge. Taste - very yeasty, not expected for the style. Some citrus hops there too. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy yeasty middle section and a finish where the yeast unfortunately dominates the hops. Overall - the yeast is too present. Not sure the brewer intended it this way.

allmyvinyl (9018) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
500ml bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy gold, thin white head. Lots of floaters. Aromas are eggy, lemon, sherbet. Taste is sherbet, touch of wild yeast? Lemon tang, slightly sour finish. Disappointing.

Stoneagedinosaur (4) - Verwood, Dorset, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015 does not count
A very light, golden beer that was a pleasant find at the 6th Big Bournemouth Beer Festival. A clean taste supported by a lively pale, clear appearance topped with a minimal head, white foam, white foam.

TEJA (2121) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Bottle sampled at Björn, thanks. No CO2 and no head. Very pale yellow that is lighter than a normal pils. Small malty taste and low aroma with just a tuch of caramell. The taste has small maltiness and a woody bitterness.

nihtila (2678) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
14.6.2014. Cask. Slightly sour taste with some lingonberry, low carbonation, difficult to get anything from the sour taste.

Lowenbrau (3073) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2014
Cask @Ship & Castle, Aberystwyth. 13-08-2014.
A very little bit of butiric nose. Some herbal aromas. Pours hazy golden with nice white head. Medium body, soft carbonation, slightly crispy texture. Some herbal flavours, crispy, moderate bitterness. A bit dissapointing.
