Pours a yellow ale. Aroma of honey, biscuit and citrus. Hoppy, floral, citrus flavour. Bitter finish. An excellent purchase.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Bottled. Excuse me while I go all giggly. It may have been the company I kept or the mad dogs weather but this just scored all the way for me. Lovely light gold body, faintly floral aroma, tightrope balanced flavours (malts covered in liquid fruit) and a simple short finish.

This is a deliciously light, fragrant beer. And with only 3.9% alcohol, I can risk having more than one glass!

KnutAlbert (6713) - 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.

Clear golden appearance pouring flat with virtually no carbonisation. Citrus flavours bounce of your taste buds leaving a refreshing and lively mouthfeel. Very impressive.

Sigmund (6762) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2010
500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. ABV is 3.9%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Nice hoppy aroma, notes of fruits, berries and pine forest. The flavour is zesty and fruity with a nice hop character, some citrus notes, a piney bitterness in the finish. I’ve said it before: I’m a sucker for golden ales like this one, with their moderate ABV and refreshingly hoppy character.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2006
Bottled. An orange gold coloured beer with a wispy white head. The aroma is a bit grapefruit and lemony. The taste is lovely resiny hops. Quite full in the mouth and very much in an APA style with the hops really standing out against a malty background. Very nice indeed.

Golden colour with a white head. Very hoppy nose. Citric and fruity flavour. Suits me very well :-))

scotty (1157) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2005
Clean gold colour, fine bead resulting in a good white head, lasts well down the glass. Fine aroma of fresh citrus fruit and vanilla. A well balanced palate has sweetish malt and nice acidity from the hops. The finish lasts well....nice beer!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 24, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a clear copper colour with some carbonation and a thin white bubby head. A deliciously strong hoppy aroma of citrus fruits and peaches. A smooth mouthfeel with buttery citrus flavours, a subtle hint of vanilla, and a short dy finish. Very refreshing and enjoyable.
