Bottle. Clear golden but with a collapsing head. Nice fresh citrus aroma. Dry, banana notes, crisp with some light citrus hop bite. This seems quite a basic golden ale, thats a bit lacking in malt character, and at the same time needs some more bitterness from the hops. Drinkable, but I can remember liking the cask version more.

radassace (257) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours golden amber with a small white fluffy head. Big wheaty, bread malt on the nose with citrus and floral notes. Light mouth feel, nicely carbonated. Full of flavour though. Elerflower and lemon leading into a bitter finish. Tasty.

Really nice floral notes, spicy, clean. Lemony hops. Refreshing, dangerously easy to drink, and not exactly bland. Great.

john44 (3034) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Light gold in colour. Aromatic hops. Very fruity (citrus-orange). Apparently, also elderflower. Hoppy (floral & grassy hops). Caramel malty base. Nicely balanced ale. Drying fruity finish with spicy hops. Tasty. Easy drinking. (2008)

I think its the wheat that makes me question this beer. It give a dull thud to the palate rather than a balanced malt sweetness. Refreshing? Possibly, in a Robinsons barley water sort of way. Elderflower? Possibly, but if it is there its in a cat has peeed in my pint way. Love the name, but should be on an IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 Butelka 500ml. Jasno-zloty kolor. Piana biala,wysoka,ladnie utrzymuje sie w szkle. W aromacie cytrusowe tony poparte ziarnistymi nutami. W smaku cytrusy ale na pierwszy plan wybija sie dziki bez i lekkie wedzone nuty. Swietne orzezwiajace piwo.

Cokemonkey11 (787) - - OCT 5, 2016
Pours pale yellow and translucent with a medium white foam subsiding slowly. Scent is light elderflower and lemon. Taste is very nice pale ale with light lemon citrus. Finish is lightly sugary and together with lemon is a nice combination. Great.

Sigmund (7309) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28.06.2014. ABV is 4.3%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma, notes of flowers and tropical fruits. Light bodied. Medium dry flavour, decent fruity and herbal hops, but not quite the complexity of the cask version. Still a great refreshment.
