3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden-orange color (dare I say muted poppy) with a fluffy off-white head; it’s effervescent and clear. Aroma is tangy, citrus fruity and sweet. Tastes sweet upfront, with prominent esters, a perfumy/floral note. Not sure which part of the tangy flavor/dry finish structure to contribute to the poppy seeds verses the belgian yeast (plus alcohol, hops, malt choices, minerals etc) but it works for me.
Falls between Between the three or four offerings that I’ve tried from Uncommon Brewers, this one seems to work the best overall, AND is closest to what would be expected from the beer style designated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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."
