ExMachina1 (3) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2014 does not count
Might be a good ale, but was not what I was in the mood for and ended up only finishing about quarter of the pint. I find golden ales hard to taste/rate after having had several more robust bitters.

A random recent discovery. It’s a very pleasant ale. Hoppy, fruity. ’More-ish’

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle on holiday in Cornwall. The label does my head in. Clear gold colour with a thin white-ish head. Flavour is floral hops, soap, flavour is a little grainy, bread, citrus. It was ok.

exeter (399) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Biscuit malts and the caramel stand out up front, then we move on to the floral hops. Then appears a touch of wheat and the light citrus hops provide a little bit of bitterness.
