Gold in colour - what a surprise! Thin head.
Hops and bready malt aroma.
Wet cardboard, hint of caramel with a nice bitter finish. Light citrus.
Moderate feel.
Better than I expected from such a lightly coloured ale.

From a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours orange/gold, clear, with a two-finger foaming head and lots of lacing. Looks very inviting.

Smell is light to non-existent. Hints offloral. May have drunk this too cold.

Taste is honeysuckle and soft lemon. Some sweetness, some bitterness. Light and refreshing.

Light/medium body with some stickiness, soft carbonation and a short, semi-sweet finish.

A light, refreshing, modern, summertime thirst-slaker. Highly drinkable.

Gold and lightly cloudy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Topped with 3 fingers of yellowish tinged foamy head that leaves a foamy lacing.

Big caramel, honey, buiscut, sweet maltiness, fruity, light floral note like honey suckle, a hint of lemon rind or grapefruit pith in the background.

Lightly sweet, honey, lemon rind and a hint of juice, biscuit, caramel comes in on the finish and then a slight grapefruit pith on the end.

Moderate to light body, moderate peppery carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

Found this at Villa Market in Bangkok, where I am drinking it July 26th, 2015. Well done brew.
