A distinctively-flavoured beer with refreshing citrus taste and attractive aroma. Light gold in colour and wonderfully refreshing.

Gravity at the Ship, Porlock Wier. Pale blond with no head, just a rim of white froth. Citrus and grain aroma. Same flavour. Dull.

Flanfl (620) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 29, 2015
Clear golden body, no head. Aroma of pils malt, bred, light honey notes and light spicy hoppy notes. Flavours of smoke malt, bread and hoppy spicy notes. Light bitter medium dry finish, long smoky aftertaste. I found the smoke overwhelming and it makes the whole beer unbalanced.

Cask gravity at The Bell Ivychurch. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Disappointing golden ale. Decent condition. Touch of rubber. Hmm not great. Shame as condition is spanking. Didnít finish a half.

Cimbasso (743) - - JAN 9, 2015
Sampled from a bottle from the brewery (thanks, Rachel!). Pale straw colour with a good white head. Aromas of doughy, bread-like malts and citrusy hops. Taste is light, with bready malts and a slight citrus tang. No sourness but a distinct smokiness, which is slightly unexpected in this style, but is actually very pleasant. A good, but very light, golden ale.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask at the Guildford. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aromas of grains, light lemon. Taste is more of the same. Finishes thin, a bit dull to be honest.
