Good fresh citrus fruitiness, bit flowery, malting covered mostly. Makes me wanna taste anyway. Looks like hazy honey with short, thin head and bit lacing. Crisp, fresh feel, light but not watery, easy to drink, bitter and fruity, long citrus finish with good bitterness. Good light and fresh one for thirst. Worked nicely with my tuna pate sandwich.

danlo (1223) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Pale golden yellow colour, bubbly white head and lemony citrus aroma. Taste is tangy caramel malt, with a floral lemon citrus hop aroma and a dry bitterness. Light body and medium carbonation. Quite OK Golden Ale.

mighty_meadow (212) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Golden syrup colour. Quite hazy.Pours a nice head but doesn’t last too long. Doesn’t feel too highly carbonated but keeps a lacing throughout. Smells of outdoors, floral, nettles perhaps. Thought it started off slightly tart but after a few mouthfuls the sweetness comes through. Finishes off on a citrus note but subtle rather than draw your cheeks together. Quite watery for Williams Bros and doesn’t really feel 5%. Good but not the best from this particular brewer. [Actually, the further down the glass I get, the more I’m liking this]

TET (1689) - FINLAND - AUG 31, 2012
A light yellow beer with a almost medium and white head. Aroma is nice and fresh, aromatic, and I want to taste, biscuity malts, lemon, some tropical fruits and papaiyas. Taste is light malty, fruits, aromatic, some sweetness, only slightly drying aftertaste. Light+, fresh and light to drink. Nice, fresh and aromatic beer, for an easy enjoy, the good beer.
