imdownthepub (10007) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with whithe head. Odd perfumed aroma leading to the flowery, perfumed vaguely cold tea like flavour that puts me on edge a little, some citrus though and a little fruitiness to rescue it, but just not to my taste.

500ml pullo. Brittialeksi keskiarvoa aromikkaampi ja hapokkaampi. Paahteinen ja hieman yrttinen maku.

ThirstyBird (1481) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a golden yellow color with just barely a hint of haze and then a near white cap. The smell is crackers, fruit, grass. The taste is some crisp bitterness to start, some fruit, ends crisp with biscuits and fruit. Light in body with above average carbonation level. A solid beer.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a firm and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly bready and yeasty malty aroma with delicately sweaty notes and citric hops. Slightly bitter flavour, light bodied with a medium carbonation. Dry malt character with subtle notes of citrus and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter hoppy finish, again with grassy spots. Decent and refreshing. 16.IV.14

pivnizub (8746) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle: Distinctive lemony-hoppy nose with subdued medical traces and backed by clean pale malt; golden coloured, visible carbonation, medium sized persistent White head; spicy bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied - not watery - and relatively soft; a slight tartness is detectable in the dry lingering citrussy-hoppy finish. Very pleasant stuff...

Beerhunter111 (6881) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares orangegoldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig fruchtig, blumig. Geschmack sehr blumig, leicht hopfig, nussig, malzig.

Cask at Draft House, Northcote Rd, Battersea on 29 March 2013. Poured a slightly hazy golden, with a rocky white head. Aroma of caramel, straw and lemon zest. Grapefruit hop flavours, with biscuity malt and nuttiness. Finish was cereal, soft fruit and light hop resin.

wimpyjoe (3552) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden-honey coloured with a smooth head and smooth tasting. Easy on the palate session bitter with a small fruity character that lingers.
