3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops and lightly honeyed malts are joined by citrus throughout this polished, quenching Golden Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam laces nicely atop the golden gown.
-The mouthfeel and flavour rendering are very professional. Smooth, creamy, bright and defined.
-The hops could be more characterful, or the body drier.
-The finish is balanced and delicate.
-Malts could be crunchier.
-Iíll have to have this again from a different source, as I hope to see what the fuss is all about. This cask could have been a bit tired?
On cask at The Kingston Arms, Cambridge.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light yellow gold with minimal white head (miller light looking). Aroma- floralish hops, sourish, almost bread-light. Lager-bread increasing in sour dough finish. Not long lasting. Good for a blonde. Aroma better than taste.

12 ounce bottle
I finally tracked down a bottle of this liquid gold and having tried it understand the fuss. This is truly one of the best low gravity beers in the world hands down. Instead of throwing in lots of hops or a heavy malt bill it succeeds by balancing a soft mouthfeel with rich flavor. I will definitely be buying some to take home.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden body is radiant like a morning sunrise. Accompanying it is a crisp white head the color of bleached clothes. Fruity hops and lemon crisp smell like an open airy white wine. Bright and intense it strikes that perfect balance between "too much" and "not enough."
Flavor / Palate - Lemons and rosy hops sweeten the palate which begs for more. The sweetness turns dry over time until it rests on the back of the throat. A reasonable amount of finish makes it easy to remember the flavor profile without hanging like a cloud of smog. The bitterness is right on the razorís edge of perfection. I would love to see some US brewers try to pull this off (like Stone or Against the Grain).

Pours a golden yellow with fleeting white head. Smells sweet and floral. Front end of the beer is sweet and back end is bitter. Tastes of hops comes through well. Mouth feel has a medium body with soft carbonation and a long bittersweet flavor rests on the tongue. Very refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
*checks BBE date* well, disappointing. Expexted lots, apply nose, giving way to bitterness. Refreshing yes, hoppy no, some malt background and a cidery finish. Moor, Fyne this ainít. Which is why I checked the best before date. This was supposed to be a well deserved treat tonight, guess Iíll have to just have another.
