Clean golden color, minimal head. Fruity aroma with notes of malt, peach, honey and toffee notes. Taste is dry sweet with notes of malt, citrus, caramel, grain and grass. Finish is hoppy and medium bitter. Medium body and average carbonation.

reebtogi (5742) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
440ml can pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and grass. Taste is a light grassy and citrus bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. An easy drinking golden ale with really not much to it. Decent but nothing notable.

Bottle from Wairteose, Hexham. A golden beer with a fairly delicate, sweet citrus American hop flavour and a delicate floral finish.

Benzai (14269) - 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 (425) - 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 (1018) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Quite boring, nothing to remeber. Nothing disturbing still, pure and "easy" taste.
