Bottle. Amber beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and bread. The taste is the same with a touch of bitterness. Decent beer with a bit more citrus hop taste than most bottled golden ales.

jmgreenuk (8825) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured a crystal clear chesnut brown with a long-lasting bubbly white head and some broken lacing. The aroma is weak malt, leading to a medium bitter, hoppy flavour with a malt attack on the palate! The bitterness doesn’t last into the aftertaste, however, it remains a very drinkable session ale. I’d buy another!

Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, a bit grainy, somewhat metallic hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, smooth and a bit watery. Well drinkable, but nothing special.

Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma of fruits, malt, citrus and floral. Taste is fruity with slight malt and clear hops. Faint hints of a citrus fruit, especially on the aftertaste. Picked up at local shop with no expectations, however pleasantly surprised.
