Clear golden ale with a zesty aroma. Very sweet citrus taste initially with a hint of hop and a slightly sour, watery finish.

nice surprise! you don’t usually expect a beer with goosebeeries and elderflowers to be that hoppy! but this is what it is - rather dry and refreshing (though not as much as their wateryharvest sun) with a nice floral/fruit scent with obvious hop hints, and pleasantly bitter i’d say. i also found it perfectly paired with hot pizza. floral, citrus, pale, sparkling, minimal head, lightly bitter, light body, rather thin feel, average carbonation,

tsurkan_sergey (42) - Novosibirsk, RUSSIA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle 0.5. Golden Ale - comprising barley, oats, and some flowers. The aroma and taste - obviously flower, rose clearly heard. At the finish breaks caramel malt. Bitterness is good aftertaste again reminds IPA.

spartakbarnsley (27) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 1, 2013
Light and refreshing, with enough hoppiness which is often neglected in a summer ale. I’m a huge fan of this brewery, and whilst in my opinion in doesn’t get close to 7 Giraffes, which is similar but has more depth of flavour, this is a super thirst quencher which would make a very preferable alternative to lager at a summer barbecue.

Shared a 50cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). It pours a clear golden colour, with some redish tones with a thin white head. The aroma is hoppy, flowery and fruity. Medium carbonation and Medium body. Flavour of medium sweet malty with a rather dry finish with quite some hoppy bitterness. Overall, I liked it but... Could be better!
