COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Status uncertain. Cold filtered in bottles.
A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

Niall73 (1831) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold colour with a foamy white head. Toast, caramel, candy aroma. Itís OK - some pear, toffee, light sponge cake. Mild lemony bitterness. Fine.

amfawcett (4) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013 does not count
a real surprise this and will definitely try again. Grassy hops with a citrus spice. Refreshing and so well balanced. Best new brew iíve tasted in a while and a bit of a revelation.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This quenching Golden Ale projects peppery and citrusy hops onto wet straw and honey before herbal hop bitterness balances everything out.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear gold.
-The flavour profile is well structured and balanced.
-Drinkability is optimal; I somehow believe this would have been better, more polished, on cask.
-The hop character is bright and delicate.

Bottle.

Golden without a head. Has a tasty grainy biscuit flavour, its pale ale tag on the label is more evident in its fruity nose.

jamestulloch (1443) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2013
Aroma: Hay, grass and faint citrus.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Very light visible carbonation. Light lacing marks.

Taste: Very clean and mild. Flavours of freshly cut grass, earth and pear.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle.

Overall: Not the most flavoursome and itís quite thin - like a cross between a Golden Ale and a Lager.

Pleasant floral aroma, lightly hopped with some citrus and grapefruit. Enjoyable session beer, could be more strongly hopped.
