Very very pale pour, geez, looks like bud light! Impressive hop aroma. Light citrus, light pine. Greatlight pale malts. Awesome hoppy finish. Wow i wish i had this available all the time. Quite possibly one of the best session ales ive had.

MiSiU (22) - Bosutow, POLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Clear bright pale beer. Small head that quickly reduces to tiny layer staying till the end and marking the glass. Fruity, hoppy aroma (tropical fruit like). Very light and refreshing beer with adequate bitternes to make it a great refreshing drink.

radassace (420) - SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw/gold with a compact white head. Lots of carbonation. Nose is straw, grassy, honey, citrus, sweet bread and gooseberry. Silky smooth light mouthfeel. Subtle flavours of straw, honey, gooseberries, lovely grassy notes and some citrus zest. Nice bitter finish. Winner.

Cask @ 3 Judges. Light golden colour, off-white head. Aroma is lemon, a bit grassy. Flavour is malty, medium bodied, lemon, citrus. Well hopped. Fairly bitter. Excellent drinkable.

Cask at the Wenlock Arms, London on 13th February 2011. Pale gold with thin white vanishing head. Lemon citric aroma, touch of ginger. Vibrant kick of grassy hoppiness with late bitter flash; citric aftertaste with floral notes. Light mouthfeel.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 My Bottom Line:
This smashing Golden Ale’s crunchy cereals and citrusy hops merge for a simple and highly effective session brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam lasts atop the misty hay blond.
-This is as great a quencher as their Jarl is. Great job!
-The crispness and hop character combine for maximal drinkability.
-There are so few light Golden Ales of this caliber around here. I’d have this (or Jarl) in the fridge all the time if I could.
-Hops also add herbal, spicy nudges once in a while.
