mt_hall (138) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled. A very pale, clear gold, with a very small white head. Subtle lemon and pepper nose. Very dry flavour. Nothing in particular stands out in the mouth, but it’s clean and refreshing.

R4N5H (170) - SINGAPORE - FEB 21, 2015
50cl bottle, purchased at Waitrose in Westfields, Shepherds Bush. Very pale clear colour with a small white head. Fruity citrus aroma. Medium carbonation. Lightly hopped. Flavours of floral, citrus lemon and light grapefruit. Bitterness, but not as much as the Jaipur. Needed a little more bite, but nonetheless an excellent taste and flavour for such a low ABV beer.

Fruits, citrus grass, herbs and a hint of bread in the aroma. Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a soft carbonation. A refreshing, but a bit watery Golden Ale.

Bottle. Pours a lovely pale golden yellow with white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, herbal and bready malt. Thin mouthfeel, although to be expected with such a low abv. Moderate carbonation. Herbal, lemon and bready taste. Nice beer, very refreshing.

Gregmcfish (11) - SCOTLAND - NOV 30, 2014
500ml bottle. Super light white straw colour, full of carbonation. Big white head that calms down quickly. Hoppy on the nose but also some grassy melon notes. Lovely hop taste and a creamy bitterness on the palate. Just a great beer. Unbelievable flavour and satisfaction and all at 3.5%.

christhoel (263) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Pale gold beer with big white head. Incredibly dry bitter beer, outpunching its ABV considerably for flavour. Oily hops, flowery with a sharp tangy lemon note. There is a light base carrying the long bittersweet finish. Lovely.
