Strong flavour. Nice after tang. Slightly fizzy on the tongue but most likely as from a bottle. Would drink again.

• Bit of yeast/wheat (‘damp raincoat’ funk) + caramel-y biscuit on nose. [FIRST GOLD HOPS, CHALLENGER HOPS]. • Quite thin body – sweetish, citrus-y. • Honeyed bread, then a bit of a rounded/wheaty end. [MARIS OTTER MALT WHEAT]

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2015
A clean, slightly eggy aroma, a nice sweet malt and a marginally more assertive bitterness. It’s balanced but leans a touch in that direction. A hint of metal.

spacecube (1378) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
500ml bottle, pours clear gold, small white head. Light caramel and toffee malt, light floral and citrus notes and a little hop spice. Some sweetness in the finish which is well balanced and lightly bitter. Light bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Bottle received as a gift. Pours deep orange colour, decent head which fades before too long. A very good golden ale. Plenty of flavours of fruit, honey.

Pours golden with a thick creamy head and high carbonation. Light nose with hops, pineapple hints. Taste has earth, hay, hops, biscuit, slightly metallic and short mildly bitter finish, slightly watery. Palate is a little dry. Okay but nothing special.

MrBlueSky93 (503) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours orange-amber with a 2 finger head that quickly goes away. Aroma of caramel, biscuit and light citrus. Taste of initial Caramel, then biscuit, some fruitiness, a touch of sweetness, vanilla and honey, then we get orange peel and lemon zest. Good!

alethol (122) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Golden with a white head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Good body. Surprisingly good, full and complex for a 4.7% beer. Would definately buy this again.

eastkenttom (107) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Pretty flipping nice. Caramel notes, a touch of honey too. Yum! A little grapefruit on the nose. A sticky dry aftertaste but not unpleasant. Nice deep golden colour. Will buy again.

Clear golden with thin white head, sharp on tongue, fruity citrus. Better when initial fizz has died down.
