Väldigt lätt och klen öl med låg humle, kort eftersmak med en doft som påminner om lättöl

kaziopiwosz (362) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - AUG 19, 2013
500 ml bottle bought in Carrefour Arkadia, Warsaw, Poland. Malty taste, very smooth. Grainy and malty palate with some yeast nutes and ideal malty finish. White, medium thick head stays for circa one minute on top. Golden colour. A solid beer.

Bring me my Bow of burning gold; Bring me my Arrows of desire: Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold! Bring me my Chariot of fire! If it wasn’t for William Blake, this dry, golden beer would be much more boring. I wish it had been brewed in those dark satanic mills.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
(Bottle): Pours amber with a very light, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruits and hits of caramel and citrus. Moderately flavoursome, some malt, caramel, nuts with slight hints of bread and citrus coming through on the finish. Good balance between bitter and sweet.

Decent with flavor. A good fragrance. Weak with aftertaste. This beer was okay to drink anyway.

RichTheVillan (4648) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Tesco; I’m having a cheap Sunday afternoon beer ticking odyssey £10 for 6 bottles, I’m not afraid to drain pour if I don’t like. Clear golden amber pour with white head, butter and a feint amount of citrus in the aroma, taste as aroma not liking this. Drank about 100ml.

SarkyNorthener (3063) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle. Pale golden amber beer with a large frothy head. The aroma is that found in most pasturised beers of this type. Taste is mild sweet hops and a touch of butter. Too carbonated for my liking. Easy drinking but forgetable.

jmgreenuk (5831) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 8, 2013
Poured a light amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is hoppy and buttery leading to a medium bitter, grassy, slightly malty flavour with some citrus notes on the palate and a nice lingering bitterness. I like this beer. The hop combination works well. It’s not packed full of flavour, but it’s smooth, balanced and when served cool, it’s a super refreshing summer beer.

rarbring (1853) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of ripe apples, yellow dried peas and grass.
Appearance: A clear golden/brass colored beer. A high white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting of brown bread, apple peel, nettles and grass.
Palate: Low carbonation, a soft texture. A medium body with a somewhat dry finish.
Overall: Balanced British brew.
Note: Bottle 330 ml at De Klomp. Reviewed 2012-12-29.
