Clear pale yellow colour minimal white head; aroma of grainy and minimal floral notes; taste of grains, some grape and a huge amount of the metallic-industrial lager-like notes...is it really a pale ale?...if so, then it is most probably the worst ale of the world. Gangstergafje (1273) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2017
The beer looks fine. The color of the beer is a nice pale amber. The beer is crystal clear. Some tiny bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer a nice layer of rather rough white foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice thin drape.
The smell of the beer is nice. There are nice biscuits malt aroma’s, and also nice regular malt aromas. I also smell a nice bitter hop aroma. Besides this there is a nice fruity touch. I smell some nice strawberry aromas. This strawberry touch reminds me a bit of Irish ales. Not bad. Lovely.
The taste is a touch less nice. The fruity strawberry is a bit less strong, whilst the bitterness is a bit stronger. This makes the beer a tiny bit less balanced. There is also a nice maltiness besides this. Not bad, but the smell was just a bit better.
The palate of the beer is nice. The body is medium light, with a rather smooth texture. The finish contains a nice hoppy bitterness. Not bad, quite nice even. I like it. NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2017
Gyllengul öl med ett lättare vitt skum. Doften är malt, bröd och lättare fruktiga och blommiga toner. I smaken tillkommer lätta karamelltoner. jaghana (6280) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 5, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Aroma: Cereal and hay notes.
Appearance: Light ambar color with clear and sparkling liquid and medium white head.
Taste: Medium bitterness with a light sweet touch.
Palate: Light body with thin liquid and average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Overall: Althought it is not my style, it has a strong touch. If they did this with a pale ale, I have to try Ambar’s other beers. crossovert (13908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2017

33cl bottle. Light gold pour, fairly clear in appearance, clearest of the bunch. Aroma is oxidized, bit nutty, bit of lime. Flavor is creamy, papery, lemon lime, lagery.
Post tasting thoughts:
This is listed as a pale ale but comes across much like a golden ale. This was pleasant, it would be interesting to try in Spain.
Pours clear orange with a white head. Aroma is mild vegetable and grassy. Flavour is dry, malty and mild grassy. Light metallic note. Ends dry and bitter. Foerdifuxx (414) - Franconia, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2016
Clear golden beer with a white, small to medium sized, medium lasting head. Aroma of pale malt and grains, gruel, faint hops. Taste is grainy, light metalic, light to medium sweet,. Light body, average carbonation. Very one-dimensional lager. venom666 (1079) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016
That was quite a disappointing beer. Pours a clear golden color with medium white head that quickly fades. No traces of Pale Ale whatsoever, just a regular commercial beer. Cerealms, sweet malts, grains and slightly citrus undernote.
