Pale gold beer with a creamy head and a light zesty aroma. Taste is hop and sour fruit and a light tangy finish.

Cask. Hazy yellow/orange pour. Slight frothy white head. Some hops, citrus. Easygoing finish with a slight bite to it. Not necessarily my style, but certainly a refreshing option.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2013
Cask on stillage at the Stag and Hounds, Binfield. Pale amber with a ring of scummy white head; malty aroma; soft, dusty, malt taste with some vaguely citrus fruit; and a dry and unsatisfying finish. A poor attempt at a summer beer - certainly not refreshing, even when drunk in a near-perfect English beer garden.

Gold-honey colour with a thin white head. Thin texture. Citrus aroma. Ok beer but nothing special.

JohnRMurdoch (2960) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Cask @ The crystal Palace JDW. Golden amber colour, good head. Dry grassy malt aroma. Sour citrus malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Fairly typical poor Caledonian golden ale.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Cask conditioned at Blackfriars, Inverness. Gold with white head. Malty beer with a toffee caramel background which just evidently masks the hoppiness that has been described. Some sweetness and slightly dull unfortunately.

mr_h (2444) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Cask by handpump at Pot Still, Glasgow - clear golden, thin white head, citrus hop aroma, intermittent lacing, biscuit, bit of citrus, creamy malty texture, bittersweet finish, somewhere between a bitter and a golden ale
