Clear gold, not much head action. Muted fruit hop aroma. Flavour is pale lager-esque, not much wheat in there, notes of banana. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Nothing amazing, but pleasant enough.
Ombord på Fridtjofen, på slipp på Tau, flaske (fra trade med Sigmund) delt med skibsrederen: lett uklar gylden med ok skum. Etter en lang dag med rustpikking og vasking, sjelden har en øl vært mer på sin plass enn akkurat nå! Men ratingmessig er den middelmådighet - jeg finner lite som minner om hveteøl, den smaker egentlig som en golden ale. Men en god og velfortjent tørsteslukker er den!

Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 01.09.17. Clear golden. Diminishing white head. Aroma and taste of American hops and grass. Slightly harsh bitterness is lingering on. More like a golden ale than a wheat beer. Werckmeister (3329) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 6, 2016

An average tasting bitter really, I’m not entirely sure why it was labelled as a wheat beer but they obviously seen that some wheat was showing in the final beer & just ran with it even though it seemed like more of an English style bitter or pale ale to me. There was the odd touch of banana coming through along with a faint bit of citrus but for the most part it was a collection of earthy malts, biscuit & a moderate bitterness running through it. Overall this one wasn’t a particularly good Carlow offering & it was miles away from some of the brewery’s better beers.
Pours almost completely clear golden color topped with a relatively small white head. Very mild aroma, some fruity notes, some wheaty notes. Later on some caramel notes. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, some wheat and caramel notes. Very moderate bitterness in the finish. DraftDodger (1705) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2016
Copenhagen 1/7 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Yellow label with something that looks like a blob of snot - or another kind of gunk and some celtic ornaments.Pours slightly hazy yellow with small white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and malty. Honey, grains and wet paper. Not especially strong. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is thin and watery. Medium sweet followed by sourness. Aftertaste is short and sour. I’ve tasted way better beers from Carlow. This is the tongue out of the window. jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
