A Golden-Ale with a huge citrus bouquet full of fresh lemons and spicy orange zest. The mouth is filled with vanilla malt and left with a long and satisfying bitter finish. An easy-drinking “session beer” with a character that you will find refreshing at any time of year.

Aroma: light citrus, grain malts. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: remains lightly bitter, acidic, citrus, grain malts. Overall: not the greatest Golden Ale, lacks complexity and is bland in palate. Pint at The Victoria, Bristol.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask @ Jacob’s Beer House, Bradford. Golden with a thin head. Hopped, some malt, but its fruitiness is just about dominant. Citrus nose and very crisp.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Cask half-pint in St Aldates Tavern, Oxford on 18th Oct 2014 after an afternoon session across the road at the CAMRA Oxford beer festival. Pale yellow to golden body, with a weak white head. Malty yet citrus feel to the nose, the taste also a citrus and light malt blend. Not unpleasant but not a lot of flavour or things happening to excite the senses.

jamesie1857 (1954) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
On cask at Chesterfield Alehouse - Pale yellow body, thin white head. Zesty citrus in the nose, lemons, limes, and slightly bitter in the taste. Other than that it doesn’t shine, and fades into a rather boring pale by the end.
