Tao. Hazy gold pour. Sharp, hoppy nose. Very grassy, hoppy, bitter. Tastes very "outdoors". Quite a bit of character for a golden ale if that’s what they’re calling it. Good one!

Sampled on tap at the famous 100 Club in Oxford Street, London. A pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh bread and grapefruit. The taste has plenty of full-bodied malts, but with an astringent taste of grapefruit skin, along with other lemon, lime and lychee flavours. A good balance is achieved between the malts and the powerfully citrusy hops. A refreshing and flavoursome pint with a good bitter aftertaste.

330ml bottle: BBD 1 Apr 15, drank outside looking at Borough Market on 11 Sep 14.
Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy with plenty of bitterness. Taste follows along very samey. Nicely carbonated, alcohol well hidden, not bad at all.

The fresh citrus & piney hops fizzle off the tongue. However, the depth leads a little to be desired with an abrupt finish. A great session ale but not a connoisseur's drink.

330ml bottle from Waitrose (I assume the bottle version of this goes in here under "keg" as usual). Clear amber pour with a huge fluffy lasting off-white head. Aroma is grassy bitterness and light grapefruit zest - no alcohol, very light grain body on the nose. Taste follow, a bit metallic - still not much alcohol. Average body, stinging carbonation, fairly quick, slighly acidic/dry finish. Pleasant enough.
