Dark amber...frothy white head..clear.....reasonable lacing
Aroma - rich golden malts...lots of sweetish malts...honey..bit of dough...slight buttery light caramel...slight hint of hops
Taste - Lots of golden malts...some light fruits...alcohol noticeable...honey....background of light earthy bitter hops...slight buttery caramel.....not fond of the malts at all here
Palate - soft carb....medium body..oily texture. Finish as main flavour...cloying sweet golden malts..honey...alcohol...bit metallic.
Overall - Cloying sweet malts...not much hops....alcohol noticeable......did not enjoy this...not my cup of tea
AROMA: bread, hay, barnyard, dough
APPEARANCE: golden, clear, head frothy white then quickly minimal
TASTE: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, not balanced well
PALATE: medium body, sticky, lively, long mildly bitter aftertaste
OVERALL: not bad, but the sweetness does not match well with the bitterness, refreshing at first, but with a lingering sweet sticky taste. planky84 (3345) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Golden pour with a white head. Pear and pineapple aroma. Fruity nose. Fruity-hop kick. Pear and yellow melon flavour. Crisp, fruity finish. Quite nice. Scopey (15281) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle from Tesco Danestone in Aberdeen. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium foamy white head and low to moderate carbonation. The nose is sweet malt, straw, hay and a hint of citrus. The taste is hay, straw, honey, pine, sweet malt, biscuit, citrus, white sugar and a little alcohol warmth, with a sweet malt finish. Ok, but unexciting.

Bottle from Tesco. Hoppy aroma, cloudy golden yellow brown colour. Flavour is sugary sweet with a citrus aftertaste. Not bad. Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2010
bottle, golden colour, small head, nice hops, bitter aftertaste and malty finish. wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle, shared with friends. Golden beer with no foam. Aroma is hoppy and light sweet, with a light fruitiness also. A nice agreeable hoppy taste, light sweet, also with the light fruitiness. Not exactly a topper, but a decent beer to drink. gunnar (9333) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2010
Bottled as itself, gift from Scotland.Pours golden with a big frothy white head.
Hoppy aroma. Taste is nice balanced, mellow and clean. Crisp hops at the end, dry. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle (as itself) from The Wine Cellars, Lutterworth. Pours brassy gold with a skim of white; aroma chewy dried fruit including apricot and fig, with some background cake and brine. Full and soapy with notes of Honey and Lemon Lockets, pine, sultana and malt loaf. Just a hint of marzipan hinting at the ABV. Certainly not a hint of NZ hop fruitiness, which really would give it a lift. Nothing wrong with it: just a pretty dull 6% strong ale.
