The head was good, the body blond. It smells fruity, intensive and expectant. The taste is hoppy: citrus, orange, lemon, a bit malty. Very nice!

Bottle at home from alesela
Grapefruit pith and nettley hops. Light body, pours completely flat pale gold, sweet shortcake malt with pleasant herbal/ citrus bitterness. What happened to the carbonation?!

500 ml bottle, a gift from my beerpal Olav, thanks! ABV is 4.0%. Very pale yellow colour, moderate white head. Nice aroma of grassy, herbal, spicy and fruity Styrian Goldings hops. Light bodied as expected, easy drinking. Distinctly spicy and hoppy dry flavour.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - MAR 11, 2013
Nice colour. Tastes better than many golden ales, the depth of flavour is good, lemon puff biscuits and a citrus bitter hop finish. Very easy to drink so a certain session beer.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
Cask@Marble Arch Inn. 05.Jul.2012 Light straw body, bubbles sticking to the glass, spare creamy head. Smells of mayonnaise, oat, grain and butter. The taste is pleasant, but not so interesting. But, we’re in Manchester and I’ve been drinking a few rather special brews today, so.... We probably should take that into consideration?! Round, smooth and pleasant!
