AshtonMcCobb (2935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Ambleside Wines. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - floral plus grapefruit and fresh sweat. Taste - resinous lemon and grapefruit with just a hint of pale malt in the background. Lemon and barley water really. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - after a day that involves a good amount of outdoor activities itís difficult to beat a golden ale that has been well executed.

foxo82 (709) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Bottle from Tarantella, Ambleside. Not so much gold as an extremely pale yellow. Small head that disappeared quite quickly. Very mild aroma of hints of citric fruits. Tastes mildly bitter with a relatively short finish. Some grapefruit and lemon with bittersweet hops. Refreshing and it complemented my meal well enough but Iím not sure it would have had enough about it to stand out when being drunk on its own. Okay. Probably a great session ale.
