viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - NOV 15, 2013
Slightly bland golden beer, ok without much to mark it out. Light malt notes, some sweetness.

CanCrusher (1104) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle 0,50L. Clear golden color with small, frothy, white head. Poor malty aroma with some citruses. Light sweet at the start, crispy, citruses are present in taste. Light bitter finish with lively carbonation and dry texture. Ok thirst quencher, but nothing more.

Piepenhenrich (1170) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
A decent Ale from the bottle, some more fruity notes distinguish it from the average.

Kita (2210) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear golden color with thin creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of citrus, cereals, camomile and bread. Taste starts light sweet malty, following is biscuity, grassy and mild fruity, while finish is medium bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Just a thirst killer...

Maits (560) - ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2017
Clear golden beer with small white head. Aroma is grass, wheat, little citrus. Taste is sweet malty with sour bitter notes. Thin body. Maybe little watery, otherwise good beer.

Bottle - clear golden yellow, high carbonation. Initial good white head, but soon dissipates. Good fruity aroma, ok mouthfeel, slight ting on tongue. Bit canny aftertaste.

Thomas_W1 (932) - Rastatt, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2017
Flasche 0,5l: Golden, glasklar, kräftige Perlen, wenig mittelporiger Schaum; frische + fruchtige Nase, deutliche Hopfennoten, angenehme fruchtige Bitterkeit; frischer + fruchtiger Körper, deutlich Hopfennoten, cremig, deutliche Kohlensäure, Hefenoten, angenehme fruchtige Bitterkeit; angenehmer fruchtig-bitterer Nachgang

3.4
nephirem (598) - CROATIA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour with small and short lasting white head. Ok lacing. Pleasant nose, a bit hoppy with coriander presence. Thin body with watery texture. Carbonation regular to high, refreshingly prickly on the tongue, bringing the hops more into the spotlight. Mildly bitter taste. Aroma of hops and wheat. Grassy, herbal, peppery. Hay. Coriander. Medium finish, moderately bitter. Decent amount of aroma for the low ABV. Overall, pretty good. A bit thin, yes, but otherwise clean, crisp and very refreshing. Excellent thirst quencher for the hot summer days.

3.2
CraftBeerNick (2725) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle in garden, 7th May 17. Pours amber. Aroma is malt, light bitter, some caramel. It’s not great.

Bottle from supermarket. An average golden ale, not as bad as expected. Passable.

2.8
MarcinG (966) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Butelka 500ml . Zloty kolor. Piana biala ,dosc obfita o duzych pecherzach,opada szybko. Chmielowo-cytrusowy aromat. W smaku cytrusy, karmel ,ciastka. Karbonacja mala, raczej wodniste.
