Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
Very grassy aroma and a lovely golden colour. Not all that bitter, but a nice mix of hops and malt. A touch sweet, but not overpowering. Very easy to drink.

shoestring (304) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2007
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Bright orange, with initial large foamy head. This dissipates to leave thin, lasting coating on beer. Maltyness is there amongst the hops. Caramel comes through a wee bit for me. Lingering metallicy/sulphur palate lingers, with a slight zestiness of citrus coming back into the mouth once swallowed.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle from Asda. Aroma is pale ale malt, grassy small citrus note and floural honey. Taste is similar, on the sweeter side of balanced but thin enough to be quite drinkable. The hops leave a strange grainy chalky character on the tougne. Intresting wee beer.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle 500ml. Aroma is a faint malt and honey. It pours a light amber body with a thin white head that all but disappears leaving the smallest residue. It starts slightly citrusy but this fades quickly into malt with a hint of honey. It finishes with a slightly dry bitter palate. A reasonable beer but it just doesnt have enough character.

jmgreenuk (5619) - 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.

ThirstyBird (2021) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours a clear medium yellow with a dense white head. The smell is tart fruit, green apple, grain, bread. The taste is crisp fruit, bread, dry crisp finish. The body is light and the carbonation is fine and smooth.
