A golden colour, refreshing beer brewed with lager malt and Chinook and Cascade hops, giving a lovely citrus flavour and aroma, which is quite dry and very moreish.

tombyars (1507) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 21st August 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thin white head which vanished away. Very hoppy aroma with underlying barley sugar notes. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Thin pale malt gives a grapefruit peel flavour strong in the mouth. Strong hops impart a harsh resiny astringency to the palate. Finish is very bitter with dry oak cask and green hops flavours to the fore. This is a poor session Golden Ale.

Earlier Rating: 5/24/2014 Total Score: 3.2
Tried at the CAMRA Lincoln beer festival 2014. Not a full rating as drunk as part of a whole day session. More recently tried at the brewery. Golden colour, with creamy head. Citrus aroma, and hoppy citrus taste. Really easy to drink.

jjsh (1) - ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014 does not count
A light, citrus cascade hop bomb, which has a very drinkable mouth feel. Small head that lasts most of the way down the glass. Light enough to be a great session / everyday ale, which I suspect was Bateman’s aim. This beer is seriously refreshing and very, very drinkable.

Waggon & Horses, York 26 Jan 13. Lys gylden. Lavt skum. OK karamellaroma. Smaken er søt frukt. Litt bitterhet etter hvert. Avslutter syrlig & tørt.

Cask pint at the Cromwell banqueting suite in cleethorpes. Was served in Batemans yella belly glass. Golden in colour, with fantastic creamy head. Tropical flavours come through but not overpowering. A great session ale
