UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 Good quaffer. nice golden colour (surprise surprise). Bicuity and floral on the palate and nose. Nice one and I could sink a few at that strength. Rerated 16.12.16 . Small bottles from Tesco supped in north berwick . Lovely stuff . Sounds corny but tastes golden . Plenty fruit in mouth . Tasty for strength .

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2014
Just on cool and into a Speckled Hen glass. Lager-like appearance in its high effervescence, crystal clarity and soppy, soapy white lather atop. The body a medium gold. Nose is floral hinting at dandelion, elderflower and chamomile with a rancid buttery, diacetyl note that doesnt sit too well. Equally diacetyl slick on the palate, but here there is supple fruit such as pear, star-fruit and mango. The Galaxy hop all but lost. The body is light but it is foamy in feel and sits gassy and heavy in the stomach. The malt is pleasant and clean enough, cereal-like with a toasted wheat touch to it. Mild bitterness just offers a peak. Pretty much what I expected of a bottled ale from Greene King, but if I use my imagination I can get that this wouldnt be too bad a quaffer, cleaned-up and from cask. Average at best!!!

Dervock (1220) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle - pours golden with a white head. Malt, honey and nettles. Taste is dry right across the palate. the mouthfeel is a bit thin but the carbonation helps a bit.

Sweet floral aroma, clear golden colour with small white diminishing head, I found it lacked much flavour was a decent basic ale but lacked character, had a light body with mild carbonation

AlbionOakley (32) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
This is a really lovely beer even from a can, golden colour not such a good head but great body. Lightly carbonated with a strong hoppy flavour but not too bitter, refreshing finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (10296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Morrisons, Partick. Pours clear pale gold with a short-lived white head. Aromas are light bread, honey sweet, very light citrus. Taste is sweet too. Very little of the galaxy hop in evidence. Thin texture, finishes sweet. Not great.
