DSG (12373) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 26, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks troubles. Golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, malt, light minerals note, dusty note, honey note, and floral hops. Mildly sweetish flavor, malty, grainy, with a bit of honey, dusty hint, bitterish finish. Rather light-bodied.

superspak (4878) - Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/9/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, pineapple, mango, apricot, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pear, pineapple, mango, apricot, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy/citrus peel bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel/rind, pear, pineapple, mango, apricot, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.1%. Overall this is an excellent English bitter! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV; and extremely well balanced between hops, yeast, and malt flavors. A very enjoyable offering.

23/10/16 bottle at home. I shouldn't like this but I kinda do. Mass-produced golden ale. Can't even get the malt level right. But goes down a treat when thirsty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavidAust (213) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2016
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 (786) - 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.
