"A strong, clean tasting Golden Beer that's not too sweet and with a fresh flowery aroma."

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2006
Cask handpull the Cove - what a fabulous day: Dark golden color, small frothy head - very nice looking. Not much carbonation. Nice grassy nose and taste - light all in all - but very pleasant.

Cask handpull at The Cove, London with Yogi Beera, Pivo, Chris_O and Kook. Golden with lasting white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, some nice malt, bit dusty. Yes, good hops, citrus and very dry finish

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2006
Bottle. Mid gold with a fair white head. Aroma pleasantly hoppy with background malt, and some sweet malts and fruit in the taste. Not a lot of bitterness, but plenty of fizz. It’s quite good.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2005
Beer No 31 on the Wilsons’ Road Trip 2005. Cask at Budock Vean Hotel, nr. Falmouth. Didn’t expect to find a decent pint at this 4 star hotel, so pleasantly surprised. Golden amber, white head. Peachy hop, caramelly malt in aroma. Firm mouthfeel with little carbonation. Good hoppy finish. Very enjoyable pint.

CornishRob (10) - wadebridge, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2005
not impressed with this beer. This brewer excels in making middle of the road, on the fence unremarkable beers. This one is kinda corny / strawish which is nice for horses but not i. I also got a very unpleasant dryness from it. I should have paid more attention to the pumpclip which thankfully would normally be enough to put all but the blind off.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF, 2004] An Amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hops - and so is the flavor.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
Hazy amber, light but lasting head. Rather lactic meringous like aroma, floral in a cheesy way almost. Very light flavor overall, tart vegetables, mild citrus. There’s an odd note in there that I’d almost identify as corn, it’s very grainy anyway, yet quite flowery. Definitely not interesting, nor balanced. Lively carbonation, harshly thin, dry.
