Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr/madsberg/Ungstrup. Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy off-white head. British hops aroma with a whiff of citrus. Light body, a very dry fruitiness bordering astringency. Dry and bitter finish - hops get a little better flavourwise. 221012

Cask conditioned handpump Cask Pub & Kitchen Pimlico 11/10/12. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Sharp hoppiness again. Earthy notes in the malts. Late citrus fruitiness. Very good but not as satisfying as most Buxton goldens.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, some marmalade in there, malty, slight sweetness. This would make a great session ale. Best Buxton of the evening for me.

Cask at CP&K. It pours golden yellow, with a small-medium white head. The nose is fresh citrus (particularly lime), some sweatiness, grainy, grass and light soap. The taste is lime, pith lemon, grapefruit, grass, graininess and some soap, with a dry, lightly citric finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent citrusy golden ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s amber with a modest white head. The aroma’s of pissed carpet, some lemon, grass and cheese. A bit funky indeed. The taste is mild berry and orange fruit salad. Grassy hops, a bit gritty. White bread. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, not bad. Well made, but like many other mildly bitter golden ales.
