This golden ale is reminiscent of the striking sunsets that can be seen from Belhaven Bay. With its refreshing citrus taste balanced against clean floral tones, this ale is certainly one to tempt the palate. .

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2016
On cask at Carter’s Tap. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - light rotten egg note then it blows off a bit and there’s some lemon and pale malt. Taste - lemon and astringent malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher. Overall - wouldn’t order a second.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham. Slightly hazy golden amber - fresh barrel, I think it may have been put on too soon, with a small, thin, white head. The aroma is nothing special with corn, cereal, biscuit and damp leaf character and indeed the taste continues along the pathway to insipidness with bland, biscuity malts and grassy hop. Not a great deal going for this one.

jjsint (2266) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Cask at the Portland Arms, Cambridge. Mid to dark gold, small white head that clings to the glass. Sulphurous, medicinal nose. Taste is better, with a sweetish fruity bitter. Sour edge dominates in the finish, but it is far from acrid. Not a great beer, hardly a good one, but it’ll do if you’re not terribly picky.
