lusikka (6043) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 07/2011.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a small foamy head mainly on the edges. Aroma of strong citrus with some hops. Flavour of pleasant bitter hops, strong citrus, caramel and grass. Light/medium bodied with a hoppy finish. Pleasant citrusy and hoppy finish. Refreshing summery brew.

armando629 (2405) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2011
0,5 l bottle, Biererei, Vienna.
Poured opalescent golden with a small creamy off white head. Fruity pleasant aroma with citrusses, herbs, some resin with a light malt in the background. Easy body with a surprisingly lively carbonation that brings a creamy mouthfeel with yeasts and some light malt, sourish fruity palate with green apple, citrusses because of hops. Thirst quenching, fine!

madmitch76 (14469) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2011
14th April 2007
Warning! Early amateur rating! Complex golden ale that delivers on its promise of vanilla and orange. Finishes with a long and blooming bitterness that is a bit jarring.

BeerBaboon (1533) - FINLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a yellow ale. Aroma of honey, biscuit and citrus. Hoppy, floral, citrus flavour. Bitter finish. An excellent purchase.

JohnRMurdoch (3202) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2010
Bottle from The Cave. Aroma of hops & lychees. Slightly cloudy deep golden colour. Tastes of dry citrus fruit. Slightly harsh on palate. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad, quite sililar to some of there other brews.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2010
A zero-flaw, malty golden ale that unfortunately lacks individuality for all of its sessionability.

Clear, medium-gold hue; thin, white sponge of a head. Rich, bready malts alongside candied pears and mossy notes in the aroma. Off-dry, low-moderate clean acidity, low-moderate lemony bitterness. Medium-light body, slick and creamy texture, soft carbonation. 50 cl bottle, best before July 2011.

nearbeer (3617) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2010
500 ml, US version with "Scottish Session Golden Ale" label; best by July 2011. Dusty orange-gold with a small ring of creamy foam. Nose of caramel, banana and light orange. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated with a crisp, hop-tingly and dry finish. Front flavors of caramel and light toast segue into lightly peppery citrus zest and toasted pecan. Another solid session ale from this brewery.

TBone (12472) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2010
Bottled (K-Kamppi, BB 10/2010)
Hazy yellow color, good cloudy white head. Nose has lemony hops and watermelon fruityness. Suprisingly good body and palate for 3.9% beer. Fruity yeasty flavor. Interesting ashy notes with hoppy lemon and flower flavors. Although not so exciting, this brew works well in the sessions! I dont understand why this is separate entry from cask version (clearly unfiltered).

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
pivnizub (8747) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle: Golden, small to medium-sized stable white head; solid lemony, peachy and peary nose with distinctive "citrussy hops" and juicy malt underneath; distinctive bitter-sweet flavour, pleasantly light bodied; citrus-fruity bitter-sweet finish with a peachy aftertaste. Wow, what a nice brew.....
