oh6gdx (21545) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, mediumsized bubbly head. Aroma is fruitish hoppy along with wood and nectar. Flavour is really sour and bitter fruits. Quite brutal, but still refreshing.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Clear light golden ale which shows a small cover of white foam. The nose displays lots of herbal intricacies with tart perfumey, shampoo-like hop nuances. Pretty tart and grainy mouthfeel. The beer feels disappointing after the nice and original nose. Tasty, but unappealing flavour disposition.

downender (6635) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Golden coloured with a slight white head and yeast haze. Aroma of pineapple and citrus fruit. The flavour was slightly sweet with a dry, grassy hop finish. Good.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 27, 2008
500ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a huge rocky white head and a massive perfumy floral hop aroma. Those Celelia aroma hops definitely work! The flavour is similar to the aroma - floral and fruity - and there’s a good long bitter finish. Very refreshing and highly drinkable, this is a great summer beer. I was impressed!

Rune (8823) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
Winner of the golden ale category at GBBF 08. Draught. Dark golden with bright clarity. Missing head. Aroma with lemon hints. Fruity and toasted malt profile in taste. Very smooth with floral-hops coming through in the mouth. Relatively anonymous (tutored tasting with Roger Protz, 06.08.2008).

Skinnyviking (7491) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2008
Cask. Low off-white quickly disappearing head. Clear golden body. Sweet fruity aroma with honey. Mild fruity flavor with out much hops bitterness without being sweet. Low carbonation, long aftertaste. Quite tasty.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2007
(Cask at GBBF, London, 9 Aug 2007) Golden yellow colour with white head. Fruity nose with notes of grassy, citrussy hops. Fruity taste with a balanced hop taste with citrus and grapefruit. Some malt sweetness shines through the hops. Good balance, fresh hops.

wyzzywyz22 (2058) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2008
Cask, Black Pig, Cardiff. Slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish off white head. Aroma was sweet malt and fragrant hop with a dose of citrus. Flavour had similar elements and was very clean tasting, with a very long and lingering dry bitter finish.
