The ultimate catch, a refreshing golden pale ale with a fruity bitterness & lingering aftertaste. Certainly a beer to help create those one that got away stories!
Brewed with Wold grown malts and hopped with the fruity Cascade and Goldings hops.

A nice crisp light ale. Very refreshing with just the right amount of amber malts to balance the good dose of Cascade hops. Light bodied, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, bright and very clear, with a small and thin white head on top, with low retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity, moderate hoppy, some apricot, peach Taste is a bit "dirty" with malts, hay, again some fruits and light hops, nicely bitter though on the aftertaste, with good enough duration. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall okay.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 27, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Eurospar Tomasjord. Lys gylden. Litt skum ved kjempehøy kvelling. Ser ut som juice. Syltynn maltsmak. Ellers ingen ting.

Beese (1463) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle of an unknown origin. Poured a clear deep golden colour, with a thin, scummy white head. Light aroma; some tropical fruit and malt. Initial flavours of grass, chewy grain and lemon zest. Finish was mineral, medium sweet and with some straw.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Crosse Keys London 24/03/14. A blonde beer with a lingering white head and lace. Hoppy. Parma violet sweetness and some tropical fruit. An odd hop bill. Malts are OK but there’s something about the sweetness which I’m not keen on.

bierocker (23) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Clear gold colour with a thin white head. The aroma is of freshly cut grass and sweet fruits. Taste of citrus with a hint of sweet malts. Low carbonation. Hoppy bitter finish. An average Golden Ale.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5, Tromsø. Huge, fluffy white head to a clear golden coloured body. Spotty lacing down the glass. Rather restrained aroma of herbal hops. Mild fruit hoppy taste alongside hints of buttery malts. Smooth bittersweet ending, short-lived. Soft carbonated. A little watered palate (shared with Finn H. at his place, Tromsø 27.03.2014).

OleR (4759) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle purchased at Meny Oslo City. Plain clear golden. Brief big-bubbled white head with good lacework. Low aroma level. Lager-ish with hint of candied fruits. Light, fizzy body. Slick to watery mouthfeel. Light, sourish grainy malt base. Earthy bitterness with a faint fruit tone in the back. A fair one, will love to have this one fresh and unbottled.
