Hermod (8213) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2011
50cl bottle. Poured golden color with a frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma is malt and citrus hops. Flavor is similar, fruity hoppy, zesty, with a sligtly bitter finish. Too thin though, not much flavor in finish.

lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 20, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus. Flavour of floral hops, citrus, sweet fruits, grass and a malty background. Light bodied with a hoppy, light citrusy finish. Not too hoppy this one and everything in balance.

mile (4032) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle. Golden, short and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some toffee and fruitiness, faint citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light hoppyness and toffee. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light citrus hoppyness and toffee. Quite light-bodied ale, nice hoppyness, but too much toffee/caramel considering the body and hoppyness.

Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
crystal clear, light yellow, no bubbles smells like a lager but has some slight hop aroma med body and moderately fizzy tastes like a "full" lager not bad but nothing to talk about

A light and smooth beer. Something of a lagerish golden ale. Dry finish with subtle hop. Light. A good beer for a hot day.

2.9
ha1ag (946) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2010
Bottled, as it’s advertised it is pale, light golden color, with very small white head. Nose is hoppy with vanilla. Aroma is soft hops, sour fruits and apricot. Very thin bodied, even too thin for its kind I think.

3.3
DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2010
Bottle from Dobbies. Bright gold with a glistening white cap. Floral, soapy aroma; wafts of lemon and lime over pastry; honey-flecked sweetness, sappy dandelion, background almond. Slick and chunky for the ABV in that beguiling Scottish way; chew of unmade lemon and lime jelly; almond sprinkles, soft honeyed white toast, rub of peanut oil; vapid grassiness and thistle. Some quality there, but would have preferred the hops turned up.

3.6
JohnRMurdoch (4999) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Bottle from Tesco. Revamped label, very well presented. Oaty resin aroma. Pale golden yellow. Dry citrus resin oat flavour. Lively carbonation and fresh bitter aftertaste. Used to love this one, now it is only just good, tastes change.

2.7
Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2010
Flaske 0,5l kjøpt på Centra Colosseum, Oslo. Veldig lys på farge. Litt gulskjær. Lavt luftig skum. Aroma av brød & litt krydder. Smaken dominert av malt. Litt syrlig.

2.9
TaxiDriver (1779) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle. A fruity aroma of citrus, light spicy and some hops. The head is white, creamy and medium large with a rather short duration. The body is clear and yellow. The taste is light bitter with a strong fruity middle part and a long mild finish. The body is creamy and light foamy, medium strong with a soft carbonation.
