zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2007
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Cloudy gold color with a puffy white head. Aroma is rather fruity with some hops, grapefruit, and the slightest hint of malts. Flavor is light and refreshing with a nice balance of hops and malt and a very light citrus flavor at the end. Very crisp and quenching.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
Bottle, 0,5l. Nice round fruity and fresh aroma. The appearance is nice golden yellow, with a nice white head. The flavor is clearly grapefruit and a twist of lemon. The grapefruit flavor hangs in the mouth, and leaves a fresh taste. Good mouthfeel. Good overall impression.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Nose is gently hopped with a little peach. Pours light copper gold with a disappearing head but persistant lace. In the flavour and finish it comes fully into its own through a masterful level of hopping - perfect for the strength and body of the beer and adding a zesty freshness and long, dry, citric finish that leaves you wanting more as soon as you can get the glass back up to your mouth! One of the best golden ales I know and one of the best beers at session strength I can think of.
