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

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 7 Aug 2008) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with citrus, grapefruit and a clean malt profile. Fruity taste with notes of citrus, pineapple, clean and solid malt with balanced sweetness, leading to a finish with citrussy hops. Nice balance between hops and malt. Nice beer.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle at ÅBF08. Weak fruity aroma. Golden colour. Weak fruity flavour. Not rough, just boring.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, 26th April 2004. Light amber with a pure white head that takes a while to settle. Very fruity on the nose and on the tongue - peaches, lemons, oranges, apples all present. The finish is a bit plasticky. Not really up my street, but hard to find any glaring flaw.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2008
Cask, Barony Bar, Edinburgh. Golden colour with an off white head. Fruity , citrus, hoppy aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Malty flavour, grassy, hoppy with a hint of spice and a slightly bitter finish. Quite a humorous pump clip ! Not bad.

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully diminished white head. Dry hoppy and mild malt aroma, classic. Flavour is mild fruity and dry breadish malt. Goes into a mild spiced bitterness before the finish. Dry and bitter finish.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Light amber color with a white head. Mild floral aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Rather grassy/herby/floral/spicey hops over mild caramel. Temperature was just right to bring out lots of flavors; what real ale is all about. Finish is clean; really good.

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2008
cask at Market Porter, London. Pours a golden amber color with thin white head. As with most ales I’ve had over here, they aren’t very hoppy, although this one did have a slight bitterness to it. A bit if malty taste as well. This had a mouthfeel that was very smooth and slightly thin, yet drinkable.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks
Very slightly hazy golden blonde with a thin white film. Nice straight down the line hoppy stuff with lots of grapefruit and peach and a faint biscuity note. Dusty and unexpected malty finish. Pretty decent but not quite great.
