Refreshing golden ale, with a floral bouquet and strong, bitter and very hoppy finish. If you like Dark Star Hophead then youíll like this.

ladnewton (1815) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2010
Cask at the King Charles I, London on 2nd Sept 2010. Gold with a white foamy head. Deliciously hoppy with grapefruit the leading taste element here, with a long-lasting hoppy finish, and a light to zingy mouthfeel

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Cask gravity, Tamworth BF 2011, 09/09/11. Jeepers. Nose a neat resinous burst of hop juice; ladiesí armpit, grapefruits, citrus peels, jazz cigarettes. Thatís pushing 9. Pale yellow with a fringe of bubbles collapsing fast. Sings like a single hop Mikkeller. Didnít realise Amarillo could be so pungent; taste all bitter citrus peels peppered with sherbet, swish of greenery, blunt bitter finish. Bone dry, whipped clean. A gnaw of biscuit follows, with some peanut husk. Which is all you want. Pretty sexy. Easily Beer of The Festival So Far.

Cask conditioned Handpump Old Fountain London. A blonde gold coloured beer with a good white head and lacing. Really good lemony Amarillo hops throughout this. Hints of grass. Malts are superbly balancing. Effortlessly drinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2012
On cask at the Bow Bar Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, caramel and alcohol. Similar resinous hop flavours with mild carbonation. Nice.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask from the GBBF upstairs staff bar.
Big grapefruit and citric Amarillo all round. Hugely drinkable, lovely and dry on the palate. Just really fruity and interesting if only for the luscious hoppage. Fantastic legnthy bitterness. Brilliant bright gold looks with a thin but lasting white head and very good condition. The bitterness lasts for ages. Great stuff.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London. Gold with white head. Very pleasant light hoppy beer, tangy, just a touch sweet and a good carrier for this tasty hop variety. Just a touch of earthiness in the close. liked it.
