Available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles. Cask: Special - 2011 JDW Autumn Beer Festival.
"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."

500ml btl 4.7abv, b@Eurospar - also observed@Eide (Meny distribution). Modest pearl head, some curtain, golden body, not totally clear. Scents of hops, sweet malts, bread, yeast, faint hint of grapefruit, Chocolate malts in the taste, fruity fresh too, nice hops building up under it. Smooth and slightly grainy to palate. Well bodied. Nice gentle bitter ending with breads, dark malts and the final part of hops. I feel overall that this is a quality ale.

BenOver (148) - SLOVENIA - APR 18, 2015
Pours hazy golden with no head. Smell is gentle, slightly sweet. Taste is very carbonated, with some sour notes and lacking in aftertaste. Should be better.

Towey1989 (316) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, caramel, bready malts plus herbal and grassy hops. Taste again of grain, bready malt, grassy hops, herbal bitterness and a little metallic aftertaste. Light bodied, watery texture and some carbonation. A quite harsh grainy bitterness in the finish. Tastes more like a lager than a golden ale, ok.

DraganC (23) - SLOVENIA - FEB 17, 2015
Very plain beer. I really expected more from this one. It is not really bad but it does feel very plain and not special.

luttonm (2906) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2014
.5l bottle at Pozarevac Grand Tasting 2014. Pour it rich gold with nice foam. Grainy ale aroma. Good dry bittering, body is solid ale. A little banana bread. Quite tasty. Surprising hop bittering.
