Cask; Regular.
A golden ale with a hint of malt sweetness from caramalt. Passionfruit and grapefruit aromas on the nose. First taste gives a complex zesty hop palate leading on to a fresh herby finish.

Handpull cask at the Green Man, Stamford. Straw, clear with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is really light, but there’s definitely some grapefruit and lemon if you work hard enough. Taste starts bitter and hoppy, but there’s a hell of a load of malt behind this. Very nicely carbonated. Finish has some fruity astringency alongside a transient umami. Odd beer, likable enough and certainly well made but not my favourite by Brewster’s.

Backlog rating. Cask at CBC CG, London. It pours a clean golden color with small white head. Aroma is grassy, grainy, with light melon and citrus leaves. Taste has more melon, tangy citrus, grass and wet hay. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

ManVsBeer (8772) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge. Pale golden with a thin head. Has a balanced malt-hop with a dirty nose in this respect - although mainly malty. Has a fairly malty taste too and a medium bitterness.

JohnRMurdoch (4412) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Cask @ Fat Cat. Golden amber, good head. Grain citrus hop aroma. Soapy citrus hop flavour. Bitter sweet afrertaste. A bit unbalanced. Expected better.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe. Vivid gold with a small white head. Lots of citrus with a hint of tropical fruit and a crisp, bitter finish. Clear US influence. Good golden ale this.

tombyars (1604) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted this in Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) on 27th January 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dry dusty citrus note to the hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt delivers a fruity citrus flavour of grapefruit full in the mouth but very little else. Dusty hop resins impart a dry bitter note in the slightly astringent aftertaste. Finish is all about the hops with a citrus peel zest coming through in the palate. A poor session Golden Ale for me.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Gravity, Hinckley BF, 13/09/13. Dusted pale gold with slight halo. Nose of clean lime and lemongrass with pungent tropical and dried curry leaf background. Excellent balanced stewed tea and lime zest hop with biscuit undercarriage. Good.
