4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 Nov, 2006 Filtered bottle. A very satisfying and stimulating beer. Quite clean and well behaved, yet full of flavour. Good hop burst, scintillating, citric tangy fresh, yet with a good rub of earthy dust. All well supported by a juicy yet almond dry malt base. A good job well done. [4.3]
Feb, 2007 Filtered bottle. Compared with Bluebird, Chimera IPA, Rolling Hitch. Balanced and playful. Good marriage of citric hops and pale malt. Lovely hops. The totality is a little too clean and filtered, though the healthy dose of English hops gives this a pleasant earthy edge. A damn fine brew. [3.9]

Cor laranja, com media formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de casca de laranja, abacaxi doce, um pouco herbal. No sabor, cítrico, com médio amargor bem balanceado com o dulçor. Muito refrescante e fácil de beber. Muito boa.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
