mikkopen (873) - 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 (9591) - 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 (6267) - 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 (4030) - 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 (332) - 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 (5518) - 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.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle, 50cl, Oddbins. Nice clear gold appearance. Thin head, clean crisp taste. Good dry finish.

MiP (13773) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle, 3.9% at ÅBF08. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is refreshing, but has a little plastic. Medium bitterness.

yespr (31769) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a lacing white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Light fruity hops flavour with a mild sweetness. Light bitter and dry finish. I find this between the red and joker in flavour-scale. Another nice hoppy brew.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2008
Clear golden with medium white head. Grainy with fruity and hoppy notes. Ends bitter.
