JulienHuxley (2514) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2013
On cask @ In de Wildeman. Slightly hazy gold pour. Lemony aroma, quite citrusy, lemon zest, grainy notes, light grassy hops. Taste is quite bitter, not much malt body, super dry finish. Palate is light bodied even though the beer is quite full flavored. Good, but a bit too dry and astringently hoppy for me.

Poured a slightly hazy straw with no head. Aroma of zesty citrus and soft malt. Light body, the flavour is refreshing lemon over minimal malt with a dry bitter finish.

(Cask, Rainhill Beer Fest): Slightly hazy light golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, pine. Taste is a very light citrussy flavour with some grassy, floral and pine notes. Little bit of spice on the finish. Refreshing but fairly standard beer.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Pours pale yellow. Good for golden, tastes more like an EPA. Some light hops here but mostly just malt. Not super interesting. Finishes with light sourness. Cask Days 2013.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken Řlutsalg, Bryne. Pours an ultra-pale golden body with a medium foamy white head. Nose is lovely: citrus fruits, pine, papaya and hints of mango and wet grass. Taste is citric peel, kiwi, mild grassy notes and hints of bitter herbs, particularly in the finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Quite nice and refreshing Golden Ale, which pulls it off without being watery and dull, particularly considering the low ABV.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle at home from De Molen shop. Pours clear light golden with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, bready and earthy. Taste is light to medium bitter. Light body and quite fizzy.
