355mL bottle into a shaker glass. Super clean gold body, white head that didnt last, but did lace. Malty nose but not much else. Did I read that there were Galaxy hops (cant smell em) and they were "rare"? (not in this neck of the woods they arent!). Body is medium to light. Malty honey on the palate, mild dry bitterness to finish. Not what I expected from the label, but as a mid strength beer - it is drinkable.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Nice golden color, packed with malty flavors, but super smooth....Probably my favorite golden ale too date!

Tognetta (849) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 2, 2016
Amarelo ouro quase translcida. Esouma branca de mdia formao e persistncia. No aroma malte evidente, mel. Paladar de mdio dulor, leve amargor. Corpo leve e mdia carbonatao. Tende a aparecer mais o amargor com o tempo, mantendo o mel, mas corpo muito leve. Razovel.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze ciemny zloty z obfita biala grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie niezbyt intensywnie, troche miodu, trawa cytrynowa i kwiaty. Gdzies na koncu lekkie cytrusy. W smaku owoce egzotycne, karmel i slody. Wysycenie i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Nie ma fajerwerkow ale lekko schlodzone dobrze wchodzi.

Muggus69 (2312) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
355mL bottle from Dan Murphys. Clean deep gold body, sudsy sort of head. 3 Pleasent sort of malty nose - pale caramel, toast, honey, slight floral (hop) character. 6 Medium-light body, carbonation probably a touch high for style, touch watery on the finish. 2 More of the toasty, honey sort of malt on the body, moderate bitterness, finish is dry, lingering minerality. 6 Doesnt do what it says on the packet (Galaxy hops!?), but it is past its Best Before - not particularly exciting. 11 2.8

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a thick off-white head, decent lacing in the glass. Aroma is toffee, tropical fruits, grass and a hint of lemon. Taste is very crisp and refreshing combination of mango, caramel, lemon zest with a crisp clear finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Extremely nice and refreshing brew!
