worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Pale yellow with a thin somewhat lasting small white light lacy head. Smells of toasted malt, citrus and a light hop fruitiness - peach. Watery thin with a soft carbonation. Tastes sweet at first like peach and then a bitter grassy hop dry finish. Some light malt with a bit of spice and apples.

Theydon_Bois (17213) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Served on Cask at the Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport - Jan ’12. Pours to a very clear golden blonde colour, you can literally see right through it! Small white head that thins slightly during drinking. Defnitely a citrus nose to this beer and a light sweetish malt aroma also. On the palate this beer also gives off a citrus flavour and slightly grassy with a very subtle hop taste and finishes slightly bitter Quite a thin beer in the mouthfeel but fairly crisp and refreshing none the less.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2012
50cl bottle from BeerCity. Dorée claire, col blanc crémeux moyen. Arôme donne ce profile très anglais alternant entre malt, levure et un bouquet houblonné nobles allemand. En bouche, malté grillé, houblonné léger laissant une brève amertume, le tout présente une fine amertume épicée restant fleuri. Le tout est sec, léger avec des notes de grains et ce côté très British au palais.

RichardGretton (4652) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Golden / copper coloured beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is mildly toffee, and the flavour is bitter with a chunk of caramel and an element of roasted'ness. Overall a reasonable blonde beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oh6gdx (25449) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, herbal and grassy with mild grains. Flavour is very similar in a quite dusty way. Also rather flat as for carbonation. Failed second fermentation in the bottle?

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 Aroma speziato con una reminescenza di pompelmo, dovuto al Zatec, e malto. Al palato si presenta leggermente amara con una sapore di biscotto di malto che rende la birra un pò teutonica. Per poi riportasi ai canoni inglesi "bitterici" nel finale, che inchioda subito. Ottima Golden Ale
