bosta (229) - - JUN 22, 2013
500ml bottle (4,2% ABV). Pours hazy yellow with nice white head that gives plenty of lacing. Aroma is fruity (citrus and a bit of elder) and hoppy. The same goes for the flavor. It is fruity (citruses), light and refreshing. It has a modest bitter and dry aftertaste. This beer really delivers what it is advertise on the label. Overall a very refreshing summer beer.

MarcinG (665) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala srednia ladnie utrzymuje sie na szkle. Nuty orzechowe i chlebowe w aromacie. W smaku trawa ciastka ziolowe akcenty orzechy i chleb. Ciekawy lekko cytrusowy posmak ktory dodaje swiezosci i porzadny goryczkowy finisz.

shoulderbroken (3981) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Tap at the Stansted airport Wetherspoons. Fruity, hoppy, surprising. Light and refreshing. First beer in a few days. After a little it gets a little yeasty and has more real ale character but a pleasant surprise.

On tap at The Wheel and Compass, Weston By Welland. Light golden pour with small white head. Subtle grassy and hoppy notes with toasted grains. Dry hoppy citrus finish, Lacking complexity yet very pleasent and drinkable.

Towey1989 (2096) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, slight grapefruit, a little apple, some pale malts and grassy hops. Taste of soapy lemon, some grapefruit, a little apple, slight pale malts and subtle spicy, grassy hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A short, soft, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A basic golden ale, some decent hoppy notes but its quite soapy and oily like most people picked up on. Ok.

Light golden color. Very unremarkable and simple hoppy flavor. Unremarkable beer, but by no means bad.
