sound67 (784) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Bright, hazy golden yellow. Big, fluffy white head. ***
Nose: Grains, yeast, a hint of lemon. Mild herbs. ***
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, but hardly watery. Active carbonation. ***
Taste: Light caramel, floral hops, yeast and mild herbs at the start. Rather hoppy and bitter toweards the middle, some herbs. Bitter finish, or hops and a little lemon, more lemony in the aftertaste. ***

Impressions: Yeasty and agreeably bitter, well, "bitter" (although that style designation really doesn’t tell anyone anything!) with quite a profile to it, more substance than most golden ales. Well done.

ozzatoadisback (215) - ITALY - JUL 27, 2016
Dark golden/light orange. Head is not big but pretty thick and nicely persistent. Moderate lacing. Aroma of light caramel and crackery/crisp malts, a herbal hint and subtle fruitiness. Taste follows the aroma with light to average sweetness and bitterness. Finish is dry and distinctly bitter, but in a delicate way. Both aroma and taste are not bold, but definitely fine. Light body with low to medium crispness, easy mouthfeel. Nice one

bnwokedi89 (106) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Golden blonde beer with a slight undertone of bitter flavor. Beer has quite a bit of carbonation/fizz and pour pretty fast out of the bottle so take care in pouring. I wasn't able to taste the hit of sweetness that was referenced on the label. Instead, this beer tasted a bit metallic. This is by far my least favorite offering from Hobson. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (3523) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Cask at the Bell & Talbot, Bridgnorth. Light gold with a small uneven white head. Light malty aroma. Taste picks up a bit with a basic but pleasant bittersweet. Hops aren’t particularly noticeable so the malt rules the roost. A bit warm and buttery in the finish. No thanks.
