caramel, apple juice, some fruit and citrus in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall totally OK, but not something to remember.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. A light blurry golden looking one this and it has a small bubbly light lacing white top. It smells of diacetyl and thin watery hops. Not sure itís meant to smell like this, cause there is nothing pure or golden about this aroma. A bit better in the taste, no make that much better in the taste. Still, itís definitely nothing to extraordinary this. A mild gentle but definitely present grassy hoppiness with traces of both caramel and whatís left after the wort. Light mouthdrying in the finish and aftertaste. Horrible aroma and a fair (dull) flavor profile with a nice hoppy punch. 25.12.2013

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a light golden body with a small white head. Nose is sweet heather floral tones, sugary notes, pale malts and hints of red berries. Taste is sharp acidic tones up front, bitter herbs, pale malts and hints of grains. Light body, medium carbonation. Too sharp and bitter, not fruity enough or even very drinkable. Not very impressive, all in all.

Cask handpump at The Bricklayers, Colchester. Light golden colour, slightly off white head. Citrusy, very smooth and easy drinking. Palate probably the high point. Overall didnít really enjoy this much - I recall having enjoyed it more bottled before, which is unusual.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Cask version - superbly smooth golden ale, very nice in the palate, it matters little that the aroma and taste is low.
