3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangey appearance with a good sized head. Scent is of citrus hops with some nuts also. Some sweetness in the front, then a bitterness creeps up on you. Some dryness on the end. Lots of fruity hops: tastes mainly of mandarine, some earthy notes. I liked this a lot and mine was full of aromas, unlike some of the other comments here.

Cask in the Bon Accord. Aroma is pale malts, some honey, grassy and slightly citrus. Taste is similar,m however everything is very minimal and unexciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Akkurat Cask. Hazy golden body toppd by a healthy white foam of thick bubbles that last. A bit undefined in its maltiness, rather sandy and earthy. it makes a funny mix with the already earthy, woody hops that even bear a certain cattiness. Certainly dry palate, quite mineral yet without tartness. rather original, pale yet very earthy. Leafy hops contend no citric aspects to my tastebuds. Bitterness is firm and long and includes a fair bit of astringency. A very special golden ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 24 May 2007) Golden amber colour with foamy white head. Fruity, floral nose with notes of citrus, orange peel and earthy hops. Fruity taste with orange, grapefruit and earthy hops in a long bitter finish. Medium to light body, mainly dry. Refreshing with a nice hoppy character.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - OGs Wellingborough. A copper coloured beer with a nice pronounced hop aroma. The taste is very bitter with great hops. No sharpness, just smooth and drinkable. Enjoyed this a lot.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark gold with a large white head. Malt aroma. A little sweet fruit in the background, but the main element of the taste is the sharp hoppiness. Too fizzy.
