Better than expected golden ale. Quite sweet but not overly cloying, a little toffee and a hint of fruit and hops. A refreshing beer and one I probably wouldn’t object to drinking again.

Golden color with a white head. Mild hoppy, toffee and some lemon in the aroma. medium body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet. Moderate fruity, some metal, caramel, mild lemon and herbal hoppy flavor. Nah not for me.

Bottle. Appearance - golden with a decent head which then quickly disappears. Nose - honey and lemon. Also possible butterscotch. Taste - honeyed cereal. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher. Overall - not worth a revisit.

Clear amber with off-white foamy head and heavy carbonation. Non-deScript hoppy nose with some staleness. Watery taste dominated by metal and grass and clawing metallic finish. Very gassy. Reasonable palate. Not impressive.

Decent hoppy aroma, golden amber with frothy white head. Nice tasting with medium bitter finish. Easy on tongue and mouth - quite a nice modest bitter - easy drinking.

JPC1524 (36) - Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
A very nice, easy drinking beer. Maybe lacking a little complexity. Has a nice balance of biscuity moorishness with hoppy bitterness. The beer is very attractive looking with a great aroma.

GuideDogSaint (868) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 22, 2015
500ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours golden with a thin white head. Malt aroma with a whiff of hops. Short bitter finish. Not too different to some lagers I’ve had recently.
