gwoodin (44) - Birmingham, - FEB 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Little aroma, little flavour. Gold colour. There is bitterness. I found this one very difficult to review.

mcf (48) - - NOV 22, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Cask at the Three Judges, Glasgow. Late November 2017. Wonderful golden pint. Crystal clear with a good head. Very hoppy

Itstasty (117) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Cask @ The New Inn, Cliffe, North Yorkshire. Thin straw colour, light white head. Light body. Crisp fruity thirst quencher. Standard light beer.

Towey1989 (3447) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, some grapefruit, slight grain, a little grass and subtle floral hops. Taste of lemon, grapefruit, slight pineapple, some grain, a little grass and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A little thin as expected from a 3.5% golden ale but it’s hoppy with citrus and floral notes coming through a light, grainy malt base. Decent.

Smithld1 (359) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
Solid pale ale. Nice but boring and pretty weak. A good option if you need to be sober

Hermod (8518) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Tap @ Angleterre. Poured clear golden color with a thick white head. Cereals, fruity hops, peachy fruits. Fruity, nice bitterness. Decent. Balanced.

Heidbummer (989) - SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Pint at de Hems. Pours pale yellow, thin head. Crisp, bitter and refreshing, but a little thin. Quenching.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2017
Draught (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Lovely uplifting floral hoopy aroma. Pale, goldish, small loose head. Light palate, a little watery, but with a nice bitter resininess. Simple pale sweetish malts and floral and fruity aromatic hops in the mouth. Super easy sessionable golden ale.

tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow on the 6th February 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale straw in colour with a thin creamy white head. Fresh green hops present in the zesty hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a slight biscuit note but this is lost in the zesty citrus fruit flavours which gives juicy lychees and kiwi notes. Citric taste strong in the dry dusty hop resins which compliment the malt well and add length to the bitter aftertaste. Citrus continues into the bitter finish giving a dry pith note to the palate. A decent session Golden Ale.

thellgren (1168) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
0.5 l cask @ Gallows Bird, Espoo. Appearance is clear golden. Despite the low ABV this has some taste. Quite easy to drink and a bit mild, but there is a bitter ending.

jookos (7160) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2016
[email protected] (6/2016). pale golden, yellow light foggy. Some citrus, orange peel, pale malty, thin malty nose. Light bodied, slight green hoppy berries, citrus, some grapefruit. A hoppy blond ale. Ok flavours, nothing too special though.
