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.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Very pleasant light flavor. Clean grains with light hops give it a weightless, fine balance.

Light tan color with a short lived white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with hops and malt. Flavor is similar with a strong floral hops backbone and sweet malt. Very drinkable...

tykjen (182) - Flor, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2007
Good pale bitter. The hopping is lager-like with the hersbrucker and a low ester profile. Good bitter spike and refreshing dry finish.

garthicus (2916) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 18, 2007
Sweet scent, small head, a hoppy, fresh, exciting taste with a mild aftertaste, perhaps a little caramel-like. One for the cellar and one to be enjoyed with friends.
