ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Pours a clear, golden body with a big white head. Nice. Aroma is mild and floral, with honey and some herbal hoppy tones and hints of citrus. Taste is smooth floral hoppy freshness with hints of molasses and grass. Palate is kinda watery but this actually goes well with the overall taste/texture profile for once; this is rather nice! :-) A well-made, easy-going, fresh session ale from England - the kind of beer one would like as a go-between in a tasting session with heavier stuff.

@ Sun Inn, Coniston. Straw with light gold colour. Slightly honeyish aroma with a hint of pale malt. Vaguely honeyish, creamy, with soft hop. Vague pale malts. The finish is fairly sweet.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Cask @ Sun Inn, Coniston. Fresh crisp golden color with scattered lace. Clean, inviting aroma. Crisp and sweet but balanced between pale malts and fruity esters from the hops. Mild. Nutty, nice malt character. Well-developed sweet pale malts. Pure and simple.

Bottle: Golden, a bit unclear,rather quickly collapsing mid-sized fluffy head, leaving a little lace; moderate lemony hoppy nose with a light malty background; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, soft, light bodied; slightly lingering lemony-fruity and hoppy finish. Good.....

07.05.2010, 0,5l Bottle. Golden colour with white head. Malty aroma with a smooth bitterness. A little thin body. Aftertaste is soft an bitter with some spicy flavours.Nice but not perfect.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Cask, Elleray Hotel, Windermere. Fresh tasting, soft, pale, fruity bitter, with a low citrus aroma. Veered almost towards a pils taste near the end, nice zingy finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Yellowish golden colour with small, but longlasting creamy head. Aroma is caramel and bready maltyness along with some mild fruity and floral hoppyness and nectar. Flavour is rather similar, but also has a slight tone of honey. Works quite nice with matured cheddar.

reakt (951) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle from the pencilandspoon Beer Swap project.
I was slightly concerned with the pale lagerish smell as I uncapped it, however, once in the glass all was well. Pours a clear, pale gold with a fluffy, lasting white head. Nose of sweetish malts, orangey/grapefruit citric hops, candied fruits, wheat/hay and berry notes that emerge as it warms. Taste is again sweet pale malts and juicy, fruity citric hops, has a medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and ends dry and bitter with a little wheat in the finish. It’s not a bad beer by any means but for me the flavor falls just short of the promise from the aroma, if they could match that it would go from good to great.
