jmgreenuk (5613) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 9, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, light floral. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry yeast, malt, floral, light spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice and drinkable but not in any volume... well not for me anyway. The dry floral bitterness in the palate is nice up front but quickly becomes less enjoyable.

"this golden ale has a nice sweet, floral and herbal aroma, is light-medium bodied, and quite easy drinking. Nothing spectacular, but the sweetness and mellow belgian yeast go well together."

obguthr (4427) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Really janked up can. Someone must have dropped it. The bottle shop owner didn’t charge me for it, which is good because I thought I already rated it. Good karma. Rich honey and lemon nose. Cloudy amber, headless. Much less prominent honey flavor, applecore. A surge of dandelion, sudden but neither strong nor distinct. Raw potato finish. Despite the can being compromised, there was still carbonation, soft and unseen. Sessionable and unique.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours golden, light fruit, toffee, sweet, sugary, some caramel.
