It’s the epitome of a clear, crisp and lightly fruity golden beer which is drinkable and refreshing but ultimately a bit dull.

Rather boring but it kept a bit of its head. Utterly forgettable in its mundanity. Actually tastes like it has a splash of lemonade in it.

500ml bottle from Aldi - Clear yellow body, thick white froth on top. Nose is a bit floral, bit of citrus. Sweet on the taste, but has a semi-decent bitter kick on the way out. Medium mouthfeel, a bit fizzy too, but nothing too dramatic. Average ale, refreshing though.

* Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, golden, with a white head. * Aroma is very mild, sweet & hoppy. * Palate is light, high carbonation, very fine bubbles. * Taste is dry, crisp but bland, like a lager but sweeter. * Finish is crisp & dry. * Pale ale, dry & refreshing.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
500ml bottle: BB Mar 16. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home in Mar 15. Clear golden body with plenty of carbonation bubbles rising up to the thick, white blanket of tight foam which sat on top. Chilled as the bottle label suggested it had a weak aroma, semi-sweet, yet hoppy also. Good refreshing feel to the flavours, nice blend of hops and maltiness with the hops just about winning in the taste stakes. Clean and hop bitter in the finish: decent and thirst quenching. Thought it had a good feel for a 4.0% ABV brew.

Pours a very pale golden colour with a thin white head. Smells of sweet malt. Even malty taste with a slight bitter finish.

berkshirejohn (5018) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
50cl bottle from Aldi. A pale straw colour with a billowing white head; musty corn syrup aroma; thin grainy body; and a sweet finish. No different to any cheap Euro-lager.

harrisoni (14850) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle from Aldi. Clear pale gold colour lasting white head. Slightly pukey pale malt. Some hop on the finish. Slightly lemony. Reminds me of a not very good German helles.

Bottled; low boost golden ale time ; Good nose kinda grassy floral hops mixed with bready malts . this resembles a pils to look @... dranks like everything i mentioned with a crisp dry finish , not bad considering wat it is .
