From a bottle. Pours a clear amber with a mild aroma of malt, not much head, not as hoppy as I would have liked but pretty good.

Muggus69 (1273) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2014
330ml bottle Slightly hazy golden body, white head drops away. Subdued aroma; soapy citrus hop, some pine needle, odd bit of corny malt. Moderate carbonation, medium light sort of body. Bit of mild hop on the body. Oddly soapy and DMS corn character. Mild bitterness. Not great, couple of things wrong with it.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2013
Poured a clear amber colour with a thin off-white bubbly head that diminished quickly to a thin bubble line and didn’t lace. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste of slightly sweet malt followed by a very mild bitterness. Light body with watery mouthfeel. Average at best.

Stew41 (1759) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2013
Not too much to get excited about here. More pale lager than golden ale but to be fair there’s sufficient (just!) fruity honey notes coming through. I can only imagine this beer was conceived post Woolies acquisition?

Morboso (68) - ECUADOR - APR 25, 2014
Good beer, not much bang for buck but to be fair I am drinking it with an IPA. Don’t like the overly eager labelling with some silly not worth reading blurb on the back label created by some yuppie marketing twit - just doesn’t seem to fit in with the honesty profile of beer. But a quite nice beer for a lager anyway even tho it is a "golden ale".

Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle - pours deep gold with. Thin white head. Malt and cereal, with maybe a hint of apricot. Some caramel up front then a dry finish. Slightly oily palate.

BarossaLuke (540) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2013
Fairly non-offensive Golden ale. Not a lot of hop character there, a little bit of stone fruit. Palate has some light crystal malt flavours but is clean and easy drinking.

nomadnicol (2) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2014 does not count
Lame bottle, rather unpleasant taste and overall a disappointment. Should’ve gone with the Three Sheets.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Dark gold, handsome short-lived head. Lively and light, more like a summer ale. Sweet flavours of berries and bread on a dusty hop base. Refreshing, but not very inspired.
