Davros IX (300) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A nice easy drinking golden ale that was perfect as a pre-Sunday lunch pint and also as an early evening pint having put the kids to bed. A gentle flavour of malt and hops, a low abv and good thirst quenching mouth feel.

Decent body for a light ale, better than most for the style. Nothing off, no complaints, just nothing special.

minutemat (5243) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Cask @ The Salopian. Pours clear amber, thin off white head. Taste smooth with good fruity moments, peach apricot they all get a look-in. Very good and flavoursome for a golden ale.

Grzesiek79 (4246) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Super pachnace zlociste piwko z minimalna pianka, zlota i mglista barwa. Cudowny zapach passiflory. W smaku ananasy, landrynki, nieco wanilli iraz miodu akacjowego, wszystko wzbogacone subtelna goryczka w tle. Przyjemne delikatne ale zarazem wyraziste. Polecam

On cask @ The Snowdrop, Lewes. Nice smooth floral beginning. Hints of grain, nice floralness with a smooth aftertaste. Nice.

RobertDale (6316) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 7, 2016
500 ml. bottle. Pours a mostly clear pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is citrus, tropical, malt, and floral. Would be a nice summer beer.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2016
Small white head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Floral minty toffee aroma with sugary pine needle notes. Dry-sweet spicy peas and flowers taste with toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish orangey peas aftertaste with mealy floral notes. Odd, and in parts its great. Grew on me as I drank. Surprisingly Lithuanian. (0.568l cask, at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen.)

Very little on the nose discernible. Very clear, almost a washed out look to the beer. Not too bitter, a beer to enjoy that could quite easily be quaffable.
