I had it on tap. It pours orange and golden with a white head. The aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. The taste is the same with some hops. This was crisp, refreshing, and much more flavorful than your average golden.

Craftakt (83) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2017
Sehr leichtes, dezentes Bier. Geruch relativ neutral mit einem Hauch grasig zitroniger Note. Geschmack leicht süßlich, ein Hauch von exotischen Früchten und ein wenig Malz. Im Abgang dominiert dann die Hopfenbitterkeit. Vielschichtiges Bier dass aber viel Charakter dadurch verliert, dass es sehr wässrig ist. Entsprechend leicht ist auch der Genuss. Ein Sommerbier.

Bottle from systembolaget, Östersund. A really decent golden ale, with a classic western US feel. Love the hops they use. It’s a little light but j suppose that’s the point! Very nice.

0,33l bottle. Clear golden with a white head. malty aroma with some citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and carbonation is fairly high. A nice beer to have on a sunny day.

Eerste indruk ziet en ruikt beter als ie smaakt. Ruikt naar lichte hop. Heeft een mooie gele troebele maar niet te troebele kleur. Weinig koolzuur en wat er aan schuim is, is wel snel weg. Maar als je een slok neemt het biertje gewoon ronduit waterig en bijna zonder body. Aloha wat is hier aan de hand? Oké beetje fruitig met hop maar ook waterig en te vlak. Ik zou het een beginnende IPA liefhebber kunnen aanbevelen. Maar goed het biertje staat als Golden Ale in de boeken. Dat is het denk ik dan ook wel . Maar toch.... aan de andere kant met een paar van deze biertjes kun je misschien nog wel surfen ;-)

19Oracolo78 (211) - ITALY - JUL 23, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Birra dal colore giallo paglierino. Schiuma bianca, fine e mediamente persistente. Al naso sentori di frutta esotica, caramello e crosta di pane. Al palato corpo leggero, mediamente carbonata con note di maracuja, mango e malto. Nel finale rimane lievemente amara e resinosa. Non asciuga completamente il palato, molto beverina. Forse manca un po’ di carattere ma tutto sommato una birra discreta.

26/VI/17 - 355ml bottle from Albert Heijn supermarket @ home - BB: 21/II/18 (2017-950) Thank to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange to deep blond beer, big creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: citrus, a hint of tropical fruits, grapefruit, pretty malty. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: soft bitterness, some grapefruit, citrus, malty. Aftertaste: little sweet, malty, some citrus, soft bitterness, grapefruit notes, grains, some tropical fruits. Pretty decent, surprised at the low overall score (35th %ile).

EugeneStraver (307) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2017
Home. 35.5 cl bottle. BB 2.10.2018. A white foam layer, which disappears fast. A yellow clear beer. Aroma is light malty and direct a fruity hop flavour of somewhat grapefruit and marmalade. Also a light hop off-flavour. Taste is light sweet, but not enough for a good body against the fruity hop bitter which became a little astringent. Apple, orange, somewhat grapefruit, peach and melon. Thin body, soft carbonation. At the end after a certain time the malty makes the beer a little off.
