Hazy amber coloured beer. Very attractive in glass with nice white head. Aroma is mainly hops with a little citrus. Flavour is much the same really with added cruity flavours. Exceptionally smooth and very easy to drink. A very pretty beer in all respects.

Served by hand-pumped cask at the Wenlock Arms in northern London. Pours a pale golden orange color with white foam head the forms into very slight lacing. Aroma consists mainly of citrus and earthy hop notes. This is a very crisp and quaffable ale. Citrus and earthy hops balanced by slight malt backbone. Very refreshing. I wish there were more places that sold real ale in the states.

Cask @ Blackfriars. This beer is tasty stuff. A golden beer with small froathy head. It has a nice citrus fruit aroma, slight grapefruit and pine with floarl hop character. Flavour is similar with a sweet biscuity malt background ending with a sharp dry bitter finish. Very drinkable and packed full of flavour for its percentage. A winner from Crouch Vale

Cask at The Wenlock Arms. Pale amber beer with a thin white head. Soft tropical aroma with lots of mango/pineapple fruitiness over a lean pale malt sweetness. Fairly hoppy/resiny hoppiness behind a creamy base maltiness. The US hops work very nicely with these biscuity/toasty UK malts. Creamy palate with a lingering fruity/spicy hoppiness. Tropical juiciness. Really delicious.

Cask at the Grantham Beer Festival. This is a rich, golden beer with a spicy citrus aroma and a full flavour with a deep bitterness with some malty sweetness. It’s almost an American pale ale, and an extremely rewarding drink.

I am really getting into these golden ales. They make for a great beer to drink when you feel like having a few. This one is a medium golden blonde, clear, with small head. Not too much in the aroma department, mostly citric, floral and pine.. Very crisp palate. Taste is medium hoppy, grapefruty. Very good beer from an awesome brewery. I have to try more of their brews.
