Cask at NWAF, Derby, ’14. Pale gold pour with a white head. Sweet fruit aroma. Nice fruit action in the flavour- lots of apricot, pear and kiwi. Nice and refreshing.

Bammers54 (39) - Camberely, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
from bottle, a really good pale ale, very assessable, moreish, like a session beer, but with lovely complexity and fruity taste from beginning to end. I really like this pale ale would definitely buy again

Golden beer with a thin head and a light citrus aroma. Flavour is sweet citrus as well with bitter hops following close after. Sharp, tart and tasty.

Cask. Slightly hazy gold with a healthy white head. Nose is spicy - zests and mango - roses. Tropical taste - mango, malt biscuit, hoppy hoppy hoppy. Finish is bitter and full. Lush.

Black Country Beano. Cask in the Great Western. Clear bright gold beer, tiny white head. Light palate, airy. Fine carbonation. Good orange peel hops over light mellow malt. Light finish. Very good marmalade here! Tastes like a Golden. Looks like too.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Quite hoppy and easy to drink. Pleasant and delivers what you expect of it.

jamesie1857 (1344) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - a hazy golden pour with a white head, the haze taking some time to clear. The nose is grapefruit, and very strong tropical fruits, the taste is almost floral, with a heavy bite of kumquat. Not too gassy, not too oily. Refreshing, but strong. Not a session beer.

imdownthepub (10001) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Great Western Arms, Wolverhampton. Gold with white head. Quite a big beer for so early in the day, but this had a flowery, fruity character, some peachiness, some sweetish mango then a noticeable alcohol kick. Decent enough.
