"English Halcyon malts are used together with lager malts. Golding hops provide the bitterness and aroma. The result is a highly distinctive light, golden ale similar in character to a full bodied Czech lager."

I am a firm lover of brown ales and this one I felt was good in flavor but lacked in other areas. When first pouring this beer the head (at least with this particular bottle) was none existent. It was very small too not really there at all and was fully diminishing. It has a very bold brown color to the beer and tiny but not as lively as I would like to see with its bubbles and fizz. The bubbles just stayed more at the bottom of the glass. The aroma was nice but not long lasting. It had a heavy malt aroma with that grainy sense to it. It in a way almost smelled a bit like wine in a way. When tasting it that malty aroma delivers with a heavy malt flavor with a light bitterness. That bitterness lasts and is present at the end the drink. A hint of smokiness was also detected in the beer. The beer on the palate had a light body and a dry texture. The carbonation was light and with a surprisingly chalky finish. I did like the flavor of this beer, but the aroma, appearance, and palate was sacrificed for it.

hrabren (39) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 20, 2014
Bought at Kaufland, Umag, Croatia. Dark golden orange color, modest but lasting head, leaves lacing on the glass. Herbal and floral aroma with hints of honey and hops, full malty mouthful aromas. Middle carbonation, full body, easily drinkable. Tasty, above average. A classic ale.

See: Pale gold. No head. Light lacing. Smell: Malt, biscuits Taste: Sweet malt. Hoppy bitterness towards end. Pallet: Light carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness at the end. Ok, middle of the road. More largery than ale. Nothing special, quite forgettable really.

golden colour, not too much, not too dense white head;aroma of bread, some caramel, maybe honey and grassy notes; taste of malty sweetness, some bitterness and cardboard...well, not really convincing beer - only its colour is notable

Pours a clear gold with a compact white head; earthy wet dirt aromas; crisp palate with mild hop finish. Note sure why this beer is rated so low
