Striking aroma hops and a lemony citrus flavour make this a refreshing beer.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Unsurprisingly gold in colour. On this showing, not one of the better Durham golden ales - and it’s a style they usually do pretty well. Too much biscuity stuff, not enough bite or aroma hopping. Acceptable, but uneventful. With many similar beers at this festival nothing in this one really stood out.

Cask at the GBBF. Golden with a small white head. Malty aroma with grain and straw. Dry, grassy and fruityu flavour with a nice bitter finish

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2011
Cask (GBBF2011, Friday)
Sweet biscuity toffee aroma. Dull smooth palate. Treated water, and soap in the aroma too. Chlorine? Minerally, but not chalky. Full of dullness. There was a bitter tingle, but it had lost me by that stage.
