2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
If you favour a beer with lemon/pineapple scent, this is for you. Pale gold body. Thin head that laces well. Neutral at first but sharper and tarter as you sip. The back taste is fuller than the fore. Thin on the palate and meant for summer. And probably a hotter one if served chilled. Not to be repeated.

Bottle from Ales By Mail; golden amber pour with a creamy white head, light lemon aroma, taste has citrus, a bit of diacetyl, some bready malts, I was expecting more from this because of Glens review, perhaps I need to try it in cask.

vague lemon aroma, pale gold body with thin white head, tastes just like tap water, absolutely the most blandest boring beer ive ever tried.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical English golden ale with stable, moussy, irregular, snow white head over a very slightly hazy (but cloudy with deposit), ochre blonde beer with very subtle olive green hue. Unusual and, frankly, not too inviting aroma of biscuit and toasted bread, green olives, cervil soup, melting rubber, grass, buttermilk, crushed weeds, caramelized ’witloof’, candied apricot, bread dough, raw Brussels sprouts, earth, old cake. Taste begins rather neutral (as usual in this style), some subdued fruitiness (cucumber, unripe berries), medium carbonation, grainy sourishness with even a slightly drying effect, somewhat yeasty and starchy but not overly so, rather thin body as expected, mineral water, toasted maltiness appearing quickly but not as much as in many darker coloured beers, bready, all restraining from actual sweetness and managing to do that very well; in the finish, a relieving, leafy and earthy, ’low’ hop bitterness appears, lasting quite long, with a bready, in fact almost sourdough-like graininess piercing through it all; this mild but persistent hop bitterness (fortunately) stays with you as the last impression, but remains too subtle to save the day. I may have stumbled upon an old bottle - clearly this style is intended to be consumed fresh - but I must say, I expected more from this, this is actually quite unbalanced, boring and strange in a not very appealing kind of way... Even in this style, I find this one of the lesser exampes I tasted so far.

Strong lemony citrusy aroma. Clear and like liquid gold. Can see why it got its name.
