Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2012
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

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2012
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.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
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.

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
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.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Cask @ CPK. The pourís amber with a modest white head. The aromaís 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.
