A true blonde! Brewed with dwarf Hilary hops, the initial fruitiness is complimented by a pronounced hoppiness in the finsih.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2016
Gravicask on the second day at Plymouth Camra Beer Festival 2016. Bright, warm golden body. Patchy lacing, dotted spots on the glass. Modest peachy aroma. Mild malt-fruity flavours of peaches, bread and lemony hops. Distant bitter end. Fair enough, does not stand out in any way (Shared with Finn, 24.09.2016).

1/2 at the Gateshead Beer Festival. 1st of the day. Light straw coloured hazy body, thin white skim. Fruity aroma, some kiwi and apple flavour, nice hops. Refreshing, dry finish.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Cask at the Watford Beer Festival 2013. Cringeworthy misogyny aside, this beer poured a hazy golden colour with a scummy white head. Aroma of peaches, candy sugar and floral hops. Sweet mango and toffee flavours, balanced with some dry straw. Finish was maple syrup, biscuity malt and fruit salad.

ManVsBeer (8762) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Cask @ Bridge Bier Huis, Burnley. Clear golden with a creamy head and a fairly smooth texture. It’s a lager style ale with a bland malt in aroma and taste.

tombyars (1592) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Tasted this bitter at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2005. Cask, gravity dispense. Pale opaque straw in colour with an open white head. Slight citric note of grapefruit in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a cereal wheaty taste with fruity citrus note of grapefruit. Good hop presence with a dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is rather dry and astringent. An ok bitter but nothing exceptional.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2011
Newcastle Town FC Beer Festival. A fruity start to a well hopped golden ale. It certainly the time of year for this type of beer and this does not disappoint.

RichardGretton (4652) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2010
Cask@Derby Beer Festival 2010. Vibrant golden beer with a fairly strong smooth head. The aroma is mildly dry, and the flavour is smooth and dry with fruity elements. Overall a reasonable dry and fruity beer.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2010
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Pale and lightly buttery malt, a bit of oat or wheat character coming through some banana like fruityness, hop balances nicey. Easy drinking stuff.

Cask at Harkers in Chester, UK. Rich and caramelly in flavor and color with a nice bitter finish. Creamy white head that leaves little lacing.
