On cask at the cromarty arms. Rich golden colour with half inch of tight white head. Aroma is distinct lemon, some lime, lightly toasted bread. Taste is again the zingy citrus thing, digestive biscuits, and a touch of toffee. Long, lingering finish, medium bodied and bloody moreish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 500 ml, thanks to Lonick! Into a Guinness pint glass, ABV 4.1%
Deep bright golden orange colour on the body, slightly off-white small and creamy head, with great retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Body is a bit hazy.
Aroma is quite hoppy, with lots of citrus,mandarines, kumquat, nice floral notes.
Taste follows, hoppy too but with no extreme bitterness, on the contrary subtle but present during the whole drinking experience, citrus fruits, mandarines, light grapefruit, refreshing kumquat again, fresh cut grass.
Medium thin body, average carbonation, quite dry palate.
Great beer, one to drink buckets of.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Colore biondo intenso con riflessi arancio, schiuma bianca frizzantina. Aroma di caramello, agrumi e fruttato. Al palato leggera e fresca, buona amarezza e complessità, con agrumi di nuovo in evidenza e frutta. Finale appena secco, carbonazione media. Ottima session ipa

50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a cloudy golden/amber colour with a nice lacy head. The nose has white flowers with some apricot. The taste has lovely mandarin oranges and some white flowers again. The palate is light to medium bodied and textured with a lovely clean finish. This is lovely!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at home from alesella.
Pours burnished gold, hazy with a frothy off-white head that soon subsides to a lacing. Enticing pineapple and passion fruit on the nose. Custard cream malts up first followed by brash lime pith, and a long tropical fruit drying finish. Possibly detect motueka at play here. This is how I like my golden ales. only slight downfall for me is the carbonation being a little lively

bottle this time. crisp, grassy, citrus, bitter finish, frighteningly sessionable. makes a happy chappy out of me every time. even better on cask.
