On draught in Kirkcaldy, very citrusy flavour, not too much fizz, was only going to have one to try but finished after 3.

Draft at the Shelton Festival 2017 in Atlanta with Andrew. Pours a hazy golden body with soft white lacing. Nose is skunky malt and soft lemon. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of skunky lemon, malt, soft spice, spicy grass - lots of skunky character. Ernest (7745) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Draft at Shelton Fest Atlanta.
Head is mostly lasting.
Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), moderately hoppy (herbs, lemon, grapefruit), with a note of minerals.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, minerally.
Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
In the top three new-to-me beers at the fest. Beer bros can keep their messy oniony DIPAs and adjunct ridden silliness and fruit gose, I’ll stick with beautiful honest finesse like this. Surprising mouthfeel for sub-4% and excellent balance too. Minerally and crisp and bright and clean as could be. Could drink this all day long, and very happily.

From a bottle ar our airbnb in Aberfoyle. Bought the bottle today at the brewery of Fyne Ales. Yellow color, white head. For the low abv a very good taste, aroma okay. A bit of citrus in the aftertaste. heavy (2890) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 11, 2017
Dec. ’16. On tap at Ma Che, Rome. Cask I believe, didn’t pay attention. It poured clear golden body with medium sized head. Aroma of honey and floral, malty, touched with fresh citrus hops. Flavor was moderately sweet malty, but also had a prominent citrus hop bitterish component, unlike most other golden ales. Medium bodied with moderately long bittersweet finish, both dry and malty. Well balanced, a pleasant golden ale which was neither complex nor even interesting to be honest but as a clean and flawless little brew it was effective for sure and deserves its score. thomat (3985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2017

Bottle from Beer52. Slightly hazy gold with a thin white head and a little too much fizz. Peppery spice, lemon, hay, floral notes, oats. Dry, mildly bitter finish. Very drinkable, full of flavour, very refreshing, very more-ish. A super golden ale. k0mpsa (3020) - Tuusula, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2017
