MichaelAwesome (4053) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite a simple one with some spices and herbs, touch of hops and a cripsy finish. Drinkable, thirst-quenching without hitting the big scores.

McTapps (4064) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from Lidl in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear amber-golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and barley. Taste of light barley, mild hops, light malt, grass and flowers. Herbal finish. Drinkable and refreshing.

SlackerMads (1606) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle, best before 2015-04-30. Clear yellow golden with a medium sized good lacing white head. Eggs, sugary grains, sweet fruits, some biscuit, honey, tea. Light/medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Dominated by esters, not what I expect for the style.

Straling (362) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with little carbonation, but great head. Strong hoppy/citrus aroma, vague grassy notes there. Bitter taste, hoppy notes, not much there. Goes down smooth, thin bodied.

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Pretty average golden ale. Little head, and a well balanced but not particularly strong flavour. Refreshing though I suppose ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours like a lager, same colour and head. Not much of an aroma at all really. Has a certain hoppiness but not over powering. Perfect for enjoying in the sun.

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Gold with a thick white top. Just had a discussion with my girlfriend as to what this smelled of the most - foam bananas or foam shrimps. I say shrimps. Touch of lemon in there too. Doesn’t taste like foam - there’s a light zestiness and a bunch of fizz. Slight malts and a little cereal. It’s ok, with a little zing at the finish... but not mindblowing.

Godfather50 (53) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle with RD after he has completed Old Bag End. This was a malty ale that had plenty of fruity flavour. Went down nicely late in the evening.

Mjp12 (336) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Fresh malty aroma, with decent light hop flavour. Tastes very much like a cask ale. Decent supermarket light beer.

dfearnley (963) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Aroma of orange, wheat, fruity sweetness, malt and a little skunk. Clear light amber with a thin white head and moderate effervescence. Taste is apple, malt, treacle, with some late but light bitterness. A passable golden ale.
