KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, - APR 27, 2009
Bottle from Centra. Clear golden beer. Avoids the usual trap of British golden ales, as it is not too sweet. Well balanced malt and hops, cereals, citrus, crisp finish.

Borresteijn (6637) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
50cl Bottle, thanks Bob & Rosemary! Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of unripe fruits, light leafy, hint of toffee, medium sweet, apple. Flavour is light to medium sweet, fruity, red apple, green banana, firm bitterness underneath, bitter finish, hint of toffee. Light bodied, watery.

Iznogud (3057) - CROATIA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle, 500 ml at the Clachan, Dornie. Pours golden, white head. Malty, bit perfumy. Sweet, light bodied, light bitter finish. Bland and disappointing.

darkseduction (726) - Zweibrcken, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2016
Flasche 50cl. Typische Pale-Ale Malzfarbe, leichte Trbung. In der Nase fruchtige Hopfen und obergrige Hefe. In Antrunk viel kaltgehopftes, schn in die Malzigkeit eingebunden, Sehr erfrischend und sehr komplex angesichts des Alkoholgehalts. Sehr gelungen!

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Clear reddish golden color with little foam. Hoppy grass like smell. The taste is mild, sweetish and has a moderate bitterness with a grass hoppy note. The aftertaste is a little bitter and mainly very mild. Nothing special, but a nice solid beer.

panzerwolf (330) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Pours light gold. Taste of hops, citrus, a bit of grass. Has a nice feel to it, mixture of bitterness and sweetness to balance each other out. Enjoyed it!

ianwelby (1212) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Lively golden beer with a thick bubbly head. Hoppy, citric scent. Very lemony flavour. Its quite tart initially but even with the hops kicking in it does mellow out a bit and the aftertaste actually ends up being quite sweet. Slightly chilled thisd be spot-on to sit in the garden with.

nihtila (3170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
22.11.2013. Mieto tuoksu, sitrusta raikkautta ja hieman humalaa. Makukin silytt miedon linjan. Hieman makeahko mallas, pikkaisen humalaa. Aika varovainen esitys, mutta toisaalta tasapainoinen eik tss mitn vikaa ole,
