Cask at Pratts and Payne. Pours a hay colour with a thin white head. Aroma is crisp and hoppy with a nice veg funk edge. Starts sweet, then light lemon and a nice medium hoppy bitterness. It's thin, but ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
August 31, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Union Tavern (Maida Vale). Slightly hazy light gold with a smallish foamy white head. Smells like a well-made if slightly dull classic golden ale - honey ’n heather, not much alcohol. Taste is less grassy than some, more honey sweetness. Light body, slightly slick, weakly carbonated, a little extra grassiness eventually emerges in the finish. Solid but the unassumingness takes away from my score - I would certainly drink it again on a warm summer evening by the Regent Canal.

Cask gravity dispense @ brewery. Solid citrus American hop aroma, good body and mouthfeel for a fairly low grav beer. Long lasting bitterness. One of the better Golden Ales, really liked this one.

Lovely crisp, hoppy golden ale, with a pleasing tartness, light aeration, gentle hop bite and a long bitter finish. Impressed. This is exactly what a good golden ale should be.
