Cask-conditioned at the Gryphon, Bristol 27/11/2012. Golden with a slight white head. Aroma of grapefruit and mango with some orange blossom hops and a touch of pine. Flavour had more tropical fruit, slightly sweet malts and a lingering dry finish. Very drinkable.

50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via Beer Ritz Leeds. Pale hazy yellow, minimal head. Nectarine and cardamom aroma with lots of floral hops. Quite carbonated, hits the mouth with a ginger whack. Long dry finish, the citrus ginger keeps building and eventually transitions to a resinous mouth coating syrup. Very interesting.

[on cask in Edinburgh]
Buttery diacetyl aroma in balance with citrus that comes from hops and fermentation. Almost clear yellow under an eternal, lacy, white top. Nice bitterness in the flavour, right up front ahead of smooth, creamy malt. Light to medium body, low to moderate carbonation, moderately bitter finish.

This is for me like a toned down jarl despite its higherabv. the characteritics are there, i suspect is a change in the malt base. still a lovely beer but overshadowed by jarl

50cl bottle. BBE 06/2012. Hazy, pale yellow, creamy, lacing, lasting white head. Aroma has mostly citrus, but also grass and floral notes. Flavor is fruity hops, malt, citrus, bitter finish. Decently hopped. Good golden ale, enjoyable still even as it was an old bottle. Session beer.
