lembeek (143) - - JAN 18, 2013
Giallo dorato, velata, con abbondante schiuma cremosa. Aroma di malto, con note di caramello e di frutta. Nel palato ha un attacco dolce, con note fruttate e una luppolatura molto leggera. Corpo watery.

DraftDodger (846) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2016
Copenhagen 11/4 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Silhouette of London and a golden goat on the label. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam - almost transparent. Aroma is malty sweet with a little wet cardboard and a little sourness. Pretty strong carbonation for an English brew. Taste is medium bitter with a little sweetness for balance. This is not horrible or anything like that - but it actually reminds me more of a standard German pilsner than an English beer.

nybol (1064) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2016
En noget kønsløs øl. Sødme fra malten og let humlet. Den er god godt kold en varm sommerdag.

mikkellund42 (724) - DENMARK - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with medium white foamy head. Aroma is malt, grain, lemon, hops, hay and hints of iron. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light to medium acidic. Body is light oily with sparkling carbonation. Finish off medium long and mostly bitter with notes that follow the nose plus some sugar, dandelion and woody notes.

adamnowek (1432) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2015
Head? What head? Golden in colour, like apple juice. Taste is golden apples, though faintly. Just another boring English brew.

A bit hazy golden color, big white head. Malt and hay aroma. Malty taste, medium sweetness. Thin body, soft carbonation. Drinkable water. //stella

veceo (1086) - CROATIA - SEP 16, 2015
Hazy golden color, average sized white head. Aroma is grainy and pretty much empty. Macrolager basically. Taste is also weak. Malty, slightly fruity and citrusy. Light body, average carbonation. Really not my cup of tea.

shoestring (344) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Yup crisp and refreshing . Doesn’t leave lot in the mouth but rather cleanses palate. Crisp apple?. I agree one to wean the lager drinkers and for BBQ. Glad tried and enjoyed it.
