Amber...clear..thin white head...good lacing
Aroma of citrus hops..grapefruit...sweet pale malts..bit of orange zest
Taste of citrus and grass hops....sweet light malts...again some zest
Palatee...soft carb...thin body..bitter hops in the middle. Finish - rather dry...bit mouth puckering...rather lingering...after a while the finish gets sweeter.
Overall - Good golden ale in good condition - nice flavours.

Quack-Duck (8434) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2011
cask @ The Kingfisher, Colyton. Copper-golden colour, creamy head. Lovely hoppy aroma. Rather full-bodied, intesnively malty with lots of good citrusy hops. Well-balanced, smooth carbonation. Very nice.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2011
Pint on hand pump at the Prince of Wales (Putney). A pretty stock standard golden ale, but there is nothing wrong with that. A little tart fruit and a crispness in the finish.

erickok (4251) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 17, 2011
Nice cloudy golden looks that was poured without head but actually has a very nice one. Citrus, grass and peach. Balanced aftertaste and dry in the very end. For the ABV it sure had a lot of flavour. Very enjoyable. (On tap & 50cl bottle)

Leighton (13853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Cask at the White Horse, Exchange Square. Rich gold pour with a foamy, voluminous white head. Pleasant hop nose, bits of pine and grapefruit. Nice flavor, lots of sticky, resinous bitterness, sweetness of honey and sugar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sticky hop finish, great balance, light bread. A really solid beer.

mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
On tap, pours clear copper. Aroma and flavour of bitter citrus hops and English malts - not much character. Decent.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2010
Strong hop aroma with grassy notes. Moderate malty aroma. Citrus (grapefruit) & pine aroma. Honey notes. Hoppy bitter dry finish. Soft carbonation. Bit watery (but in good sense) and oily texture. Golden colour.
