ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle. Golden with almost no head to speak of. But what a pleasant smell - floral, citrusy, pale malt, ripe apples and some candy sugar. Nice, sweet and crisp. Light body but aromatic enough to not slide this one all the way into boredom. Light sweet, malty, floral, citrusy, vaguely fruity flavour with a moderately strong bitterness and a floral-citrusy-apple aftertaste. Fast and refreshing but not bland. I like the way the US-hops are carefully dosed in this one and merge very well with the UK- and Slovenian hops without dominating them. I don’t believe a golden ale can get much better than that.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2012
Bottle at The Queens Hall for Bonnie Prince Billy. Golden with a shortived white head. Thin malty flavour coupled with a thin zesty hop flavour. A little herbal. Goes down easy. Not bad.

suorama (34) - Kangasala, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Strong citrucy aroma. Not much but there is sweetness. Great brilliant bright golden color. Taste is a bit too much citrusy to my taste. But not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (2466) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2011
50cl bottle thanks to Jeremy. Pours somewhere between gold and amber in fact with a nice generous head. The nose is very much like breakfast cereal, grainy with a bit of creaminess. The taste has more grain and a citrus tang. The palate is medium bodied and medium textured with a clean finish. Overall, good session ale but Bruce ’n’ Scott can do a lot better than this!

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen, shared with Palme. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange body with a medium creamy white top. Sour-ish noble hop tones in the nose; Styrian or East Kent Golding perhaps? Some pale malts as well, as can be expected. Taste is slightly "papery" grassy hops, mild pale malts and not much else. A bit boring, but then again I don’t expect much turmoil from a bottle of low ABV golden ale. Smooth and drinkable, but I think this is overrated.
