"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.

josanguapo (982) - SPAIN - JUL 22, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles El Duque. In Ikea?s pint glass. After dinner. Both sweet and bitter, with the typical english earthy bitterness a bit above the sweetness hiding the watery texture well. Very drinkable. Nasty aspect though, without any foam

Fules (628) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2016
Kicsi gyorsan kis szigetekké és tartós fátyollá olvadó hab, élénk borostyán szín. Illata vaskosan malátás, citrusos, virágos felhangokkal. Nagy, malátás testtel indít, amit a csúcson kissé savanykás, gyümölcsös aromák és diszkrét, de határozott keserű követ, a lecsengéssel folyamatosan erősödve. Utóízére már szinte csak komló keserűje marad, de az jó sokáig kitart. Közepesen testes, könnyed, jól csúszó nedű.

BlackHaddock (6003) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
500ml bottle into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass at home on 17th March 2016. Lunchtime drink with some rustic brown bread and pate. Clear golden pour, weak and wispy white head, even with a robust pour. Mild aroma of hops, taste also hop centric with a bitter nature and I can see why the brewery claim it is ’similar in character to a full bodied Czech lager’. The malts came into their own as the beer warmed a little and it became a little sweeter. Refreshing, thirst quenching and an ideal beer for my little meal.

LazyPyro (478) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity malts, hops. Flavour is like that too. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Overall similar to a lager, nice but I’ll probably forget this one.

nephirem (160) - CROATIA - FEB 16, 2016
Pours clear golden color with medium white head. Smell of malts, caramel, yeast. Thin body with medium carbonation. Bittersweet taste. Aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, herbal and floral notes. Finish is dry. Overall, a bit disappointed with this one. It feels like lager, lacking any distinctive character. Quite a boring beer.

From a bottle, that s has some grassy hops, and lager malts on the nose. Clean tasting, with a dry finish.

Butelka 500 ml. Z?oty do bursztynowego kolor, piana biala mala. Delikatna wo? chmielu i owocow . W smaku podobnie - wszystko dobrze zbalansowane ale brakuje punktu zaczepienia. Owoce orzechy tosty i bardzo cienki chmielowy finisz.

ciocanelu (1053) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 16, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with a few large bubbles. Aroma is malty with a bread crust note. Taste is also slightly malty at first but gets hoppy in the middle taste and continues towards the finish. Aftertaste lingers slightly bitter and dry. Body is medium with low carbonation. Overall it’s quite enjoyable and easy to drink.

sonotono (247) - torino, ITALY - DEC 25, 2015
Colore dorato carico, carbonazione all’inglese, scarsa, scarsa anche la schiuma. Profumo erbaceo, maltato, leggero fruttato, delicato. Sapore dolce dei malti, amaro finale leggero. Gradevole.
