jamesie1857 (1941) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Pale gold colour with a decent, off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt with some hay and floral slightly peppery hops. Light mouth feel with some malt flavours, a touch of bitter orange and a tangy citrus dry finish. Good.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2011
[500ml bottle, Peckhams Stockbridge, Edinburgh] Extremely clear golden beer with a decent white head, which reduces pretty quickly. Aromas are quite subtle, some malt and a touch of grassy hop. Very drinkable, as the palate is clean, with a lemony citrus component. Bitter, slightly dry aftertaste [09072007]

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2005
Golden color with a white head. The taste is a sweet light malty base. Has light hoppy notes with a nice and slightly complex palate.

tfredvik (1714) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Clear, golden body with a short-lived, smaller than average white head that leaves some lacing. Moderate aroma that is quite sweet with fruity notes and some sweet honey. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter, light dry and quite short finish. Some fruits and berries in the flavours, sweet honey in the back and some faint traces of sweet and overripe banana. Light bodied, a bit watery texture but still rather smooth, soft carbonation. Too boring and too sweet for such modest flavours and weak bitterness. Not actually bad, though.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Blonde classique aqueuse. Pas énormément de goût mais pas désagréable à boire.

freretoc (1584) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde, belle mousse blanche effervescence assez forte. Une bière assez amère sur l’amande, mais intense sur sa fraicheur pas mal en bière de soif.

tlind2 (1568) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2008
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.

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.

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.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Aptly gold pour, small but lingering white head that leaves some pretty patches of lacing down the glass. Orange peel, pine, floral. A restrained buttery/candy aroma. Pithy orange zest, apricot jam, clean bright malt with a touch of biscuit in the finish. Light, refreshing, but with a nice heft. A solid, flavorful ale. Just a little bit viney in the finish.
