Palme (4187) - Bergen, - OCT 4, 2012
On tap @ Bayswater arms. This is a clear golden one with a small fading white top. The aroma is light malty with a tone of cellar and smoke. The last part could easily be the guy smoking just outside. A bit anonymous, boring and definitely low. It’s soft on the carbonation and it has a thin almost watery body. Mild malty flavor, some leafs perhaps? Not really much going on her. Low on the bitterness as well. No, this was not something I have to try again, even if it wasn’t any bad flavors here. 20.07.2012

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2016
Klar gyllen kropp med lyst beige skum. Lukter litt bleie, og overmoden frukt i begynnelsen, så går det over til karamell og våt papp. Søtlig og besk. Smaker våt papp og aceton. Myk å drikke med tørr tunge.

Shared 500 ml bottle, as Young’s London Gold, bought in London. ABV is 4.8%. Clear golden colour, white head. Moderate aroma, some sweetish malts, hints of fruity and earthy hops. Medium dry flavour, soft and pleasant to drink, acceptable hops and a slight fruitiness.

Shared bottle at RB/HD at Fjøløy 02.09.16. Clear golden. Quickly diminishing white head. Moderate aroma and taste, with some pale malt and hops. Hints of lemon and lime marmalade A bit too fizzy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, but not very exciting.

nazzty (1271) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Weak and watery at first, but the aftertaste is actually the one that lifts this one up over approval. Nice and crispy and overwhelmingly refreshing.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle, 4.8%. Weak bready aroma. Clear golden colour. The head is white and frothy, but stable enough. The flavour starts off surprisingly malty. Then comes a more bready note, a bit like lager. The finish is nicely bitter, slightly creamy, and has a mild floral aroma hop.
