chinchill (4424) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Fife, Scotland. BB date stamp of April 2016 (about 1 year away).. Normal strength of hops but a little more malts and some unexpected levels of toffee and vanilla notes. Easy drinking with plenty of flavor for 3.8%.

ianwelby (1152) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Lively yellow beer with a decent frothy head. Light malty scent. Flavour is light with a bit of hop and a bit of fruit but not that much of a taste of anything in the end. Its not bad, its not watery, it just isnt especially tasty.

nihtila (3074) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
15.11.2013. Tuoksussa toffeeta, keksi, karamellia, maltaita, hunajaa? Maku eroaa odotetusta, sitrus bitter, kuiva. Hieman jotain karamelliakin, mutta huomattavasti tuoksua vhemmn. Hieman liian hiilihappopitoinen.

* Bottle. Pours hazy golden colour, with a white head. * Aroma is mild, caramel, floral & apple with faint spice. * Palate is light bodied, very high carbonation, fine bubbles. * Taste is hay, bitter biscuit, apple, & bread. * Finish is dry, grassy & slight pine. * Similar to a lager, high carbonation, faint aroma and taste.

mahkus (110) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle from Tesco at home. Big bubble bath head to start off with. Beer aroma. Honey colour. Taste like water at first sip followed by strongly bitter flavours. Okay but not very interesting.

mike_77 (5674) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Clear golden colour. Light, clean and refreshing. A good, thirst quencher with a dry, bitter finish.

panzerwolf (310) - FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Unlike its name, a pale ale. Pours deep gold. Has a taste of slight smoke, malts and hops, with a nice pite of bitterness. Somewhat earthen tone, I really actually enjoyed this one, would buy again!

Moravius (1152) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 25, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von MacDragons, Marburg. - Helles Braungelb, leicht trb. - In der Nase sehr schwacher fruchtig-herber, wrziger Hopfen und ein Anflug von stinkendem Kse (Limburger). - Im Antrunk mild zitrusfruchtig hopfig, ein wenig Pampelmuse, gefolgt von harziger Bittere. Blasses helles Malz mit zarten Toast- und Honignoten. Mild rezent, etwas dnn im Mund. Schn trockener, herb-fruchtiger Abgang mit englischem, leicht krautigem Hopfen. - Aufgrund des niedrigen Alkoholgehalts recht dnn, aber schn hopfenfruchtig-aromatisch. Trinkbar.

gegwilson (3400) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Little in the way of aroma or flavour really. Hay and light citrus and mild spice. Too much like lager for my tastes.
