Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle at home in London. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose holds some bready malts, hints of buttery caramel, orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with a bit of oily pine, juicy citrus fruits, more bread, some dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Decent balance on the finish, with lightly toasted pale, bready malts, moderate pine, citrus rind, earth, slight minerality. Not bad.

Cock Tavern. Cask. Hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light pale malts. Bitter floralness. Decently bitter pithy hops, grapefruit. LIttle pine. Mild hop spice. Light dry finish. Bitterish citric linger and more hop spice. Decent despite a trace of sulphur.

Taste of citrus hops, soft tropical hops, sweet fruits, some grapefruit, this is nice
Palate - Medium body, soft sweet. Finish of grapefruit, nice zesty bitter tail, bit of spicy hop in there as well
Overall - Liked this. Much better than the iffy bottles I’ve tried from this brewery

Aroma: fruity, flowers, some grass. Appearance: hazy gold, small, white, frothy head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters evolve into some fruity, grassy and citrussy flavours, maybe some pine, grapefruit. Overall: very nice APA, intense floral hops. Pint at the Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf.

Garrold (1718) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Very hazy gold. Compact, sticky, lasting, just off white head. Peach and strawberry. Lemon zest, and a little astringency, that I’m not entirely sure is intended. Taste has some tartness, too. Grassy, sharp bitterness, that makes for a zingy, refreshing mouthfeel. More of the same on the finish. Definitely a bit wrong, but still drinkable.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
September 4, 2014 - on handpull at The Gunmakers. Very clear and refractive brassy gold with a large fluffy lasting white head. THIS is a fine brew - classic golden ale (light, floral, not much alcohol) with some serious resin bitterness promised. Taste - yeah, even more bitterness, hint of green pepper and maybe even a little green pepper ... average body, very astringent, quite a long, aggressive bitter finish, decent life on the palate, but it does coat the back quite a bit.

cask@The Railway, Streatham, London - golden amber pour with good white head. Citrus fruity aroma and taste, orange and lemon notes, citrus peel, juicy, biscuity malts, grassy, lovely drop.
