zestytaco (34) - Niceville, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Pours a pale, crystal clear gold color with little head. This brew has a buttery smell with floral hints. Pretty good taste with the buttery malts detected in the aroma making a return in the flavor with spicy hop bitterness in the showing up in the end. Tasty brew, could more than a few down in one sitting.

Pours an straw from a bottle, grassy notes, seemed more like a lightly hopped pilsener taste-wise. Okay beer.

jrodooo5 (1244) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Plain w/out flaws or anything that makes it stand out! Light coppper pour w/ a thin white head & a bit of lacing. The aroma has some subtle malt to it. The taste is dominated by semi sweet malt that makes the beer pretty drinkable. It’s light & good for summer but to call this a flagship beer is a little scary & concerning about what else they have to offer! Mediocre at best!

Borresteijn (5412) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
355mL Bottle from drankgigant.nl. Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of a typical English ale, fruity, melon, caramel, hint of toast. Flavour is sweet at the onset, caramel/toffee, malts, fruity, mid is more bitter, nutty, toast, light floral, light hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. OK stuff. More a Bitter than Golden Ale to me, very English in character.

jcartamdg (2439) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours gold with a thick offwhite head. Aroma of bananas, spicy yeast and sweet malt. Taste follows, bananas, sweet caramel and funk. I can’t get past that weird yeast profile.
