worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2012
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 (1411) - 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 (1771) - 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 (1315) - 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!
