beeebon (430) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared, pours an ever so slightly hazy pale golden brown with thin white soapy head which lingers. Aroma has noticable malt presence, slight caramel and rich tea biscuit. Hope notes slightly tropical and a touch of pine. Taste is very clean mild to medium sweet and mild bitter on the finish. Quite pallet cleansing although a touch watery. A fine easy drinking session ale with enough going on to make it a joy to drink.

tommann (3533) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Cask at the Red Lion, Amblecote. Pours gold with a medium head. Aroma is light mango. Taste is dry and flinty to start. Light mango finish.

TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Not impressed by any citrus whatsoever, but that may be due to bottle being four months past best before date (my careless stock-rotation...). Similarly musky nose to the same brewerys IPA and a wisp of toffee-ish (nothing more than youd get sticking your nose into an empty "Toffee Crisp" wrapper). Its the red "light" for this one, unfortunately - the least tasty of this brewerys ales, for me.

RichTheVillan (7335) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber with a bubbly head, aroma has tangerine, taste has hint of pine, sweet malts, biscuits.

theprof (716) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
Cask. Aroma dirt and pineapples. Pours shiny gold with thin lace but persistent. Tastes fuller than its colour suggests with more malt in the balance and this grows unexpectedly. So may have to re-rate

Borup (13119) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2016
50 cl. bottle. Unclear yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of grass, hops, caramel, citrus and a mild bitter.

zacgillbanks (4868) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Keswick. Hazy golden coloured with a thin white head, toffee and gentle citrus followed by pine and earthy notes on the smooth finish. Not bad.

imdownthepub (13872) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from Marks & Spencers in Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. There is a crisp hoppy character to this from the start, citrus, zesty notes, rich tea biscuit. The beer is crisp throughout and refreshing. Lemon notes in the close. Very pleasant indeed for the ABV.

Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2016
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a yellow head. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and fruit, leading to a bitter finish.

[email protected] - Golden orange pour with white head. Fruity and light malty, with notes of citrus orange and lemon, some grassy hoppy backing, straw, hay, easy going gold.
