"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."

50 cl bottle from Meny Liertoppen. Pours clear golden with a medium creamy white head. Light aroma of malts, Flavour is also light but it turns suprisingly bitter. Light body, medium caronation, medium to heavy bitterness. Good golden ale with a bite. Very easy to drink.

DoctorHU (135) - UKRAINE - NOV 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Golden with a white head. Light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. A bit bitter and dry in the finish. Overall not my kind of ale, easy drinkable and not bad, but not interesting or exciting for me.

Cask in the Jerusalem Tavern with Fletcher. Remarkably I can barely remember anything about this beer - it was gold rather than yellow, decent balance with a moreish bitter finish. Smashable.

fid600 (75) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 18, 2015
50 cl bottle from City Center One, served in a snifter. Dark orange to amber, clear, with medium white head that is quite long lasting. Aroma is malty, quite a bit of toasted notes, diacetyl, low hoppy. Medium body, low carbonation. Taste is low to medium sweet with medium to medium-high bitterness, rounded. Texture is oily.

ThirstyBird (2312) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 From the local Waitress in Berko, pours a deep gold with an off-white head. Te smell is butter, toasted malt, some fruit and mild caramel. The taste is butter, caramel, toasted malt and fruit ending a bit dry. Light in body with average carbonation. This was a disappointing beer that I was going to drink with my curry...I hope that the curry is spicy so something tastes good!

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
500ml medicine bottle bb04/2016, St. Peters sampler, ta D&M. Weighty grain-golden pour. Heavily fragrant of HQ grains, honey malts, honeypop cereal, hay - mostly grainy, little Styrian Golding grass spice. Mouthfeel indeed a bit like a wet sawdost Bohemian lager, without the Saaz bite. Grain accompaniment notes of almind and vanilla in both aroma and flavour, dessert ike. Hence, Slightly less-than-refreshing, with hops soaked up by seedcake biscuit malts.

RobertoJimenez (5) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2015 does not count
Hazy amber color, medium body, crisp, dry, hoppy, small white head, good ale body, enjoyed the light tatse, low sourness. A good refreshing English Ale.
