COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lagerís flavour, purity and condition.

Caytinator (939) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Golden yellow, medium head, no lacing. Light and pleasant aroma, herbs & grains. Light taste, almost perfect for the style, well developed. Nothing too interesting or complex, but it more than satisfies. I want more.

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Tap @ The Fitzroy Tavern. The pourís deep gold with a big white head. The nose is sweet grain, some crisp golden apple and honey. The taste is light, crisp grain. General sweet malt flavors. Round, smooth honeyed pear and light banana. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not too bad.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - NOV 4, 2012
A clear light golden color with a white head that faded quickly. Aroma had a light toasted malt aroma with some mild indistinguishable fruit. Flavor was nice and crisp although it was one dimensional malts it was still refreshing. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall it was a little to delicate to excite my interest but I did not find it to be a bad beer.

JStax (2960) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured from a 355 ml bottle. Pours a translucent gold with a good froth of white head. The aroma has notes of corn and bread. Very sweet aroma. The taste is sweet and grainy. I canít say this is a very pleasant tasting beer, but thatís just because it doesnít have much to taste. Not much in the aftertastes.

Overall, I was a little bit disappointed from this beer. I bought this beer at a convenient store located on a military base in Hawaii. It reminded me of a cheap macro brew beer that I could have bought in a 24 pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (6436) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear yellow with a large white head and a light floral aroma. There is a thin light malt flavor with a fruity finish. Quite refreshing, but not a lot of flavor.

bhensonb (10935) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
355 bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a frothy creamy 4 finger white head. Aroma is sweetly bready with hints of citrus and light pitted fruits. Med minus body. Flavor sort of fits the aroma, but itís a very mild set of flavors. Still much more interesting than American macros.

Theydon_Bois (8294) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle at friends - 27/08/12. Clear pale gold with a thin white head and lively carbonation present. Sweet pale malt on the nose allied to grain, cereals, touch of citrus and a good dash of honey. Taste follows nose and you get a little honey in a fairly sweet finish. Medium bodied, carbonation was surprisingly low on the palate when contrasted with its visual appearance.
