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

Yay! Easy drinking goodness. Gold with a small white head. Fruity fruit sweetness, faint spice, cereals, dig the fresh bread. Nice. The fruit and the grains split the aroma 50/50. The taste is pretty good too and I’m glad I’m sitting back taking this one slow as the qualities evolve. A zip from the hops hangs around early on. Light tang of citrus, bread and softness related. Not much to it but tasty with a medium lengthen bitter finish.

500ml brown bottle. Pours out clear bright golden colour with a white soapy, foamy head that reduces itself into a fine film. Faint remnants of lacing in the glass. Nose is malty with light fruitiness, substantial caramel sweetness. Taste is grainy, fruity, caramel malts, slight nut, traces of citrus. Some grassy bitterness, traces of lemon and a bit of malt remaining in the aftertaste. Light body, mild carbonation. Has a simple drinkability going for it. An undemanding but decent session brew.

reebtogi (4035) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles slowly to some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of light fruits with some cereal grains and mild grassy hops. Taste is quite malty and fruity sweet with a very mild grassy hop bitterness and a touch of lemon. Light to medium body with light carbonation. Quite a nice ale for the style.

Medium gold with a thin lacy white lasting head. Floral grapefruite hops with citrus lemon. Creamy sticky frothy body with soft carbonation. Sweet notes of caramel, hops, some grapefuit hops malt with a dry bitter finish. Very nice and easy to drink. A great session.

tombyars (1328) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2012
First tasted this at Esquire house, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque amber in colour with a thin white head. Short dusty hops present in the mild aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a fruity base of grapefruit and lemon zest full in the mouth. Very slight dusty hop resins detected in the quick aftertaste. Finish is dry with sweetness still present in the citric notes of lemon and grapefruit, really tart in the mouth. An ok Golden Ale and well recommended.

There is a slight fruity sourness to its bitterness, also with some hoppiness.

PotjeBier (1582) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2011
Gravity cask @ In De Wildeman. Golden color, almost completely clear. Aroma’s are sweet, fruity, sweet fruit, perfume-y, malty/grainy. Flavor is grainy, not sweet. Light body, almost no carbonation. Finishes with more grain and eventually a short firm bitterness. Nice!

BeerSkull (1195) - SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2011
The scent is floral hops aromatic. Soft, a little watery, malt flavor with hints of caramel and hops. The aftertaste has a harsh hops bitterness that needs a fuller maltiness to avoid becoming too intrusive. Otherwise, a drinkable beer!
