Martin243 (1100) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Pint in Edinburgh. Golden with a white head. Citrus and cat pee aroma Grapefruit and biscuit flavour, slightly creamy texture. Tasty, but this style is getting over-familiar.

HogTownHarry (6512) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
September 17, 2015 - at Holborn Whippet; cask. Attractive clear and refractive pale gold, nice and bubbly, with a solid mottled white/off-white head. Terrific simple grassy/honey/heather golden ale aroma - not much alcohol, plenty of mid-level bitterness. Taste follows, perhaps sweeter than the aroma - very VERY grainy. Thick, chewy mouthfeel, solid cask carbonation with a medium-length bitter finish - nice dry tingly aftertaste - some Goldings in there?

GSAP (724) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2016
Aroma met citrusschil, frisse GFT en zout water. Smaak is fijn bitter, soort dunne lijn tussen de ananas-mango zoetige zweem. Nasmaak bitter achter op de tong. Bier textuur is dun, als water. Prima met zijn 4.5%.

Lonick (1779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle @home (Euro-vision 2016 tasting.) Pours yellowish, small white head. Nose is citrus fruits, big lemon, pine. Taste is lemon and citrus fruits. A very well balanced beer that makes the most of its parts.

bratschepeter (58) - Abilene, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2016
On tap at the Black Sheep Pub (Campbeltown, Scotland). Pours a mostly clear attractive golden color with significant and slow dissipating brilliant white head; lots of sticky lacing coats the glass. The nose is faint floral hops with some jasmine-like sweetness; the taste is earthy hops, light bitterness and a bit of biscuity malt. Medium carbonation and some lingering hop bitterness with more of the jasmine essence, finishes mostly dry. A very pleasant pint.

500ml bottle. Pale golden / straw colour, smooth fine white head, very long lasting. Aroma of light malt and citrus hops, grassy floral notes. Taste is much the same with light malt and hop flavours and a light bitter finish. A fine light golden ale.
