Benzai (8999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, full sized, a bit soapy, fairly quickly diminishing white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste has malts, slightly hops, a slight buttery sour hint but I think that might be due to age or light influence. Dry, slightly bitter aftertaste, low to medium body, average carbonation. Nice easy to drink beer, though I dislike that slight sourness. I don’t think that was intended.

OwainTurner (341) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
#20 - Described as a ’exquisitely lovely golden ale’, Thwaite’s Wainwright is a rather mediocre, golden ale. Easy drinking and just right for lazy days in the sun, offering great value for money.

scouseassassin (16) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle. Poured a very pale golden colour, thin head which soon goes, delicate scent, a bit gassy, very weak on the flavour scale, little aftertaste, refreshing enough on a summers day but not robust enough to have with food, would’nt bother again.

oops (211) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 23, 2013
500 ml bottle from Selver. Fruits and little bit of hops in aroma. Amber colour, small white head. Taste is fruity with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Nothing spectacular - just drinkable light beer.

kalervo (741) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Quite boring, nothing to remeber. Nothing disturbing still, pure and "easy" taste.

SarkyNorthener (2399) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and bread. The taste is the same with a touch of bitterness. Decent beer with a bit more citrus hop taste than most bottled golden ales.
