Jonb5 (341) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Half litre bottle. A: Pale golden, clear, small head which didn’t hang around long, not much lacing. S: Fantastic pronounced cascade hop aroma, citrus and mango. T: Very fruity, mainly mango but notes of various citrus fruits, slightly bitter finish, well balanced. M: Light body, crisp, decent carbonation gives it a prickly feel. O: Very light, perfect for a summer’s day. Listed as a Czech pilsener but to me it was an English Pale Ale or possibly an "IPL"

superspak (2447) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2014
500 ml bottle into lager glass; C083 BT1 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, white grape, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, white grape, orange zest, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Slight floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, white grape, lemon zest, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light yeast ester flavors; with a very clean flavor profile and no cloying after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this a nice and pleasant Czech pilsener style. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

wlajwl (3762) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Aroma is pale lager bready malts and mild but definitely there grassy hops. The flavor is bread, pilsner qualities, pale malts, very slight heat and a citrus/grassy hop finish.

edpeg (806) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2013
0,5 l bottle, Pours Golden to pale yellow clear body with nice white dense lacing head. Aroma is berries, plums, pineapple, grass, juniper and some malts. Vague orange fruit hops aroma. Palate is medium full-bodied, lively, carbonation is fizzy and mouthful, crispy. Taste is mild, malty with medium hoppy end. Finish is floral, little bleak, and no real bitterness noticeable. However Cascade flavors reminds it a little of pale ale, and there is a subtle lingering from these hops genera. Although it has clear lager crispiness, the hops varieties used, make this an interesting mix of ale and Pils, or just a weak pale ale with papery notes, depending on your point of view. Overall drinkable and quaffable.

Xingo Gold boasts a higher hop load than many lagers of this type. I respect that. This brew has a fresh feel and a crisp finish thanks to the clean hops. Xingo Gold only has one real problem but it’s a major one in my opinion. The malt is unrefined. Toward the middle of the mouth, it becomes slightly musty. Otherwise, I have no gripe with this lager. Just be sure to drink it cold. Big hop profile or not, this lager’s body isn’t complex enough to perform well at a warmer temperature.

degbert (1070) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle at Fogo de Chao in Indianapolis. Pours a really pretty gold with a high white head. Nose is floral with a definite hops overtone. Very clean and fresh on the tongue, with definite hops bitterness in the midpalate; just a fresh, crisp, and substantial beer without being heavy. Finish is long and a touch sweet. Quite good.

Bottle, shared with Rockley. Very pale yellow, thick creamy white head. Delicate florals, clean grains, light but flavourful, dry finish. A pale lager with some finesse. Better than anticipated.
