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 (1969) - FINLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a yellow ale. Aroma of honey, biscuit and citrus. Hoppy, floral, citrus flavour. Bitter finish. An excellent purchase.

JohnRMurdoch (4368) - 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 (4881) - 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 (16163) - 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 don’t understand why this is separate entry from cask version (clearly unfiltered).

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, 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.....

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2010
0.5 L bottle from Meny, Liertoppen. A good-looking white cream head, upon a misty, brass colored body. Inviting aroma of floral and citrus-fruity hops, and honey-scented malts. Taste has a clean, medium strong malt sweetness, evenly balanced by a fine, fruity hop bitterness. Filling with a creamy texture. Fruity and floral hops in the finish. ’Refreshing Golden Ale’ is typed on the label, I totally agree.

larsga (7297) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2010
Big offwhite head. Hazy yellow body. Fruity dusty floral aroma with wooden notes. Dry wooden floral taste with resiny strawy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Dusty astringent mouthfeel. Dry caramelly floral wooden aftertaste with metallic notes. Excellent, and hugely drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2010
500 ml bottle at home, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Clear golden color, ok white head. Aroma has very fine hops. Flavor is moderate sweet, hops, and has fine bitterness. Fine carbonation. The body is a bit thin. Nice beer, but the low alcohol is a natural limit.
