EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Nose with a light dusting of malt and yeast. Clear golden body with a soapy beige head. Smooth malty body with lightly bready and fruity yeast overtones. Lightly sweet with just enough bitterness to bring some balance. Medium body with nice English hops, somewhat delicate but with enough meat to satisfy.

McWorta (661) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 31, 2012
Soft pillowy head, light sparkling. Aromas of orange/citrus, notes of high grass some maltiness to it. Develops light banana notes in the aftertaste. Light amber in colour, soft white head. Well balance sweetness to it with some faint bitterness. Light fizzyness, a well balanced slick and oily rather full body. An enjoyable beer for a spring afternoon!

Martin243 (800) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
500 ml bottle served cool. Golden, with a thin dense white head. Tropical fruit in the aroma, the taste has a complimentary citrus flavour. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Nice hop bitterness in the finish. This is a very well balanced beer that I think was made to be "sessioned". By that, I mean it keeps you interested without any aspect of the experience suggesting it might get overpowering or over familiar over the course of an evening. Very good beer.

Quite pale and well carbonated; this is quite lively on the tongue. Bready aromas give way to a floral bitterness that becomes more powerful on the aftertaste. Hints of honey and coriander.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A little dry.

suurjuust (1221) - ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2012
Orange tinted gold, white head. Nose is malt, sweet notes with corn and citrus hints. Taste begins pretty much the same as the aroma, but the finish has a nice but weak floral hoppy bitterness. Thin body, but for the ABV, itís to be expected. Tad too weak though.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2012
(Bottle, 0.5 l, 20110205) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had toffee, fruitiness and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, grain, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Not a bad beer.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2012
500ml bottle. Poured with a fluffy one finger white head with good retention leaving a fair consistency lace on a lively golden amber-copper body. Itís an English golden citrus hop all-rounder. Slightly rindy with a drop of sweetness and bready, biscuity malt at the back. Crisp-ish & firm on the palate. Light to medium body, smooth & lightly spritzy mouthfeel with a soft bitterness in the finish.
