nephirem (507) - 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.

Bottle in garden, 7th May 17. Pours amber. Aroma is malt, light bitter, some caramel. Itís not great.

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

MarcinG (823) - 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.

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 (82) - 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.

ogivlado (7775) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 28, 2016
Rating No.7400
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 (2713) - 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 itís surprisingly fruity, lemon and orange dominate here. A decent, easy drinking golden ale.
