Amber, but a bit cloudy. Strong Hop aroma with a similar taste that also had a hint of fruitiness. Had a slight malt finish. Enjoyable.

Benzai (9778) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, some bitter, slightly hops. Not very outspoken, no flaws, pretty straightforward. Average body and carbonation.

Borresteijn (5244) - Amsterdam, 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 (2356) - Spring Hill, Florida, 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.

Bottle at home. Pours Amber with one finger of white head. Some caramel and toffee in the nose and flavor. Decent beer. Better than the ratings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad for what it is. Some caramel. It's just not my style, but if someone offers one, I'll feel free to take it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
