austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2009
Clear golden, small average pale head. Nice flowery hops on the nose, earthy grass, honey and grainy malts. Biscuit malty, flowery flavor, with mint and good herbal bitterness. Some citric fruits also. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation. Nice character and balance, pretty great for a Golden ale.

500 ml bottle (ABV 3.9%). Slightly hazy golden color, frothy white head. Hoppy aroma. Grassy hop flavor with a slightly dry, bready finish. Medium body and carbonation. Very drinkable.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Golden to copper color with small head. Floral and lemony hop aroma with orange and distant maltiness. Light refreshing flavor with orange-lemony hops, honey, medium bitterness and low maltiness in the background. Pleasant and refreshing session beer.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2008
A 0.5L bottle. Pale large bubbled head. Lace forming head. Golden yelloow colour. Malty fruity taste. At the end hoppy bite. Also some lemon in the taste.

mikkopen (1013) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2008
500 ml bottle. Golden yellowish orange, thin white head. Malty aroma with notes of citrus and grassy hops. The flavour is malty, with some citrus fruits and a nice hoppy finish. Medium-bodied and very soft mouthfeel. OK, but not particularly interesting.

FatPhil (12761) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2008
500ml bottle - - K-Market - - Rich orange gold, brief head. Rich grainy and hoppy aroma. Quite simple grainy malty taste, but a decent tingle of hops. A touch sweet, but refreshing to the bottom of the pint.

KnutAlbert (6600) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle from a London Oddbins. Golden beer, fluffy head. Very aromatic, full flavour. Belgian yeast profile, fruity, a little sourness. Bread crust, dusty finish. A new favourite - way above the standard dull British Golden ale.

Bullit (4353) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 24, 2008
Clear golden colour, huge foamy white head. Aroma is a bit skunky. Grassy hops. Flavour is malty and fruity (indeed, grapefruit). Slighly bitter. Disappointing.

AndrewC (353) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Straw gold with lots of orangy fruity esters in the aroma and body. Nice soft mouth feel with some sherbert. Quite a earthy hop on the finish. I liked it.

SaintMatty (6505) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
500ml Bottle - Dark golden/amber in colour with a white ehad. Grassy aroma with some citrus and hoppy notes. Hoppy and fresh taste with grapefruit and a pleasant but not overwhelming bitterness. Bags of flavour for the strength.
