Bottle. Gold in colour. Malty; toasty malts, buttery caramel. Fruity; mildly citrus, apple? Hoppy; lightly hopped; spicy hop. Sweet malty throughout. Drying malty finish. Easy drinking. (2009-04)

Onesimus (95) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Amber with a slim head quickly gone. A muted nose with notes of hops Thin on the palate and lacks carbonation. Lightly hoppy hints if malts giving a delicate sweetness a muted drink up front with a herbal follow through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Minimal aroma. Golden appearance but in the bottled version quite flat with limited carbonation. Subtle taste and leaves a slightly bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Light / medium body but a little flat. Overall a drinkable but unexceptional bitter.

Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Pale golden coloured, small white head, whiff of grain in the nose. Slightly toasted malt, caramel, mild grainy and slightly citrusy with rather watery finish. Ok beer.

Towey1989 (3038) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, some biscuity malts, subtle caramel and slight floral hops. Taste of lemon, orange, a little grape, slight biscuity malts and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Like on cask it’s surprisingly fruity, lemon and orange dominate here. A decent, easy drinking golden ale.

Dervock (1404) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle - pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is straw cereal and citrus. Taste is light citrus, bit watery.

josanguapo (1801) - SPAIN - DEC 8, 2016
From Costco. In Ikea’s pint glass. After dinner. Dull in both nose and mouth, with just some lemony citrus and a even a slight sourness. BBF this month. To repeat fresher

Floral, grassy aroma, notes of hay and fruit. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Subtle malt sweetness in the taste, delicate hoppy finish. Light, thin-textured body, soft carbonation. Refreshing easy-drinking beer, classic.

jice (385) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 9, 2016
Bière facile à boire, pas très complexe, légèrement amère. Désaltérante et agréable

alexmate (226) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
A fairly decent ale. Looks: golden with a big white head. Aroma: orange peel, lemon, caramel and some wheat. Taste: Some citrus lemon, orange and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. A good everyday ale. From a can, price paid: free (out of date).
