COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

A refreshing golden ale with a wonderfully aromatic citrus flavour.
A beautiful infusion of Maris Otter pale malt, the unique floral spiciness of American Cascade and the delicate aromatic blend of Mount Hood, gives this ale an impressive robust flavour which is both refreshing and satisfying.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Cask at the Victoria Inn, Rugby, 24/07/13. Lightly hazed golden with a good sized white head. Nose is pale malts, citrus, hop notes, light grass. Taste follows. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry in the execution with a little bitterness. Drinkable golden blonde but nothing I’d look to revisit.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense Wicksteed Park BF. An old gold coloured beer with a loose whitish head. The aroma is citric with some gooseberry and kiwi notes. Nice and bitter with sharp fruity hops. More gooseberries. very drinkable.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’08. Pale gold with white head. This is a lovely quaffing beer, full of zesty, tangy hops, showing the American hops at their best. Citrus notes right from the start on a crisp, biscuity body. Very close to being my beer of this festival, a corker.

Fin (7698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Cask at The Hop Pole pubs Easter Beer Festival, Aylesbury in the company of Loz, Chris O, Ruth, Barry, Lynn 21-03-08 Looks superb and probably one of the best looking beers of the day. Pours golden in colour with a stunning clarity. Some sulphourus notes are there along with a big bang of citrus. Nice soft fruitiness, good maltiness plenty of hops and like Chris O said a really good session beer that you’d happily tuck into.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Cask, The Victoria, Rugby. Zesty lemon jelly/marmalade aroma. Clean-cut citrussy sessions with floral notes and long, sweet malty afters. Wet straw, dunked biscuit and freshbread. Bit of a lingering chemical sweetener-like note, but impessively flavour-packed and spikily hopped at 3.9%. (7/3/6/3/14/3.3) (Re-rate, cask, The Crown, Nuneaton) Well this just blows everything else on the table out of the water. Neat, earthy, resinous American hop juiciness aroma. Tea, grapefruit and nothing in particular- just beautiful unadulterated HOPS. Cuts through cheap malt-heavy mediocrity like a knife. Unsophisticated but beautiful. Pineapple, mango? No point fumbling for fruitbowl metaphors and superlatives, just a really sexy beer drenched in alpha hop loveliness. Try it for yourself and see.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 1. Cask Stillage at the Bhurtpore Inn, Aston 11/07/2006 Slightly spicy aroma. Golden coloured with spicy coriander and citrus notes. Crisp on the palate with some dryness in a bitter finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the Victoria, Rugby 17/03/2007 Very hoppy and citrus aromas. Clear golden coloured hoppy and citrus with some dryness and bitterness in a crisp and creamy finish.

DanielBrown (3925) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2006
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Gold, creamy lacing. Nice blend of hop + malt creating a vase-like taste experience. Malt is prominent on finish, hops to start. Gentle for both, pretty nice balance. Silky, quite fragrant in the mouth. Nice, with a honey tinge.
