GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Light dry palate. Some sweet fruit here. Pineapple, mango and other generic fruits. Finishes crispy with more fruit and with a little hop bitterness. Liked this - just a tad dry.

tommann (3352) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2010
Cask at the Courthouse, Dudley. Pours a hazy light gold with a medium head. Aroma was faint, but was citrus hops, honey and orange. Some orange to start and then light citrus and bread. Faint bitterness on the finish.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2010
[cask at 2009 GBBF, Earl’s Court] Pours quite hazy golden orange colour with a Fuggles-esque hop tang on the aroma. Not that much citrus, quite dry. Fruity taste from the hops with a decent malty component in there as well. Quite nice but to be honest lost in the masses of beers sampled over the GBBF. I would certainly have it again, however [06082009]

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2010
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’10. Gold with white head. This is a slightly sweet and fruity beer with a gentle rose hip type note before an orange like hop, subtle then bitter. There was a sudden rush on it when it’s charm became known. Another beer damaged at GBBF?

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2010
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. Another workmanlike gold-coloured ale. No particularly striking features. Some slightly sweet notes. Distinctly fruity. Quite pale in colour but drinks more like a bitter than a golden ale.

Golden with a loose foam. Fat honey cereals and very little hopping throughout. Sessionable but uninteresting.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
Cask at peterborough beer fest 2009. Alround rating: Pale honey malt, fairly floral and lemon off the hop, lacking bitterness in the finish, but still alright.
