UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 My Bottom Line:
This smashing Golden Ale’s crunchy cereals and citrusy hops merge for a simple and highly effective session brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam lasts atop the misty hay blond.
-This is as great a quencher as their Jarl is. Great job!
-The crispness and hop character combine for maximal drinkability.
-There are so few light Golden Ales of this caliber around here. I’d have this (or Jarl) in the fridge all the time if I could.
-Hops also add herbal, spicy nudges once in a while.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Aroma: Fresh fruit smell - lemon and orange. Nice, clean aroma.
Appearance: Straw coloured, hazy body. Small, foamy head. Light carbonation.
Taste: Tangerine notes, with a lemon and lime kick on the finish. Subtle enough that you could enjoy a few of these in a session.
Palate: Light to medium mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Slightly oily texture.
Overall: A truly delicious beer and one that I will be buying again soon. Highly recommended for the delicate fruity taste and tangy finish.

(cask) pours a clear golden colour with a creamy white head. aroma of lime zest, subtle vanilla, herbal hops, light pineapple and tangerine, slightly resinous, with a hint of tropical fruit and caramel. flavour is mostly the same, light straw, heavy tropical fruit and herbal hops, with a semi-dry medium-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation. a perfect session ale.

Handpump Society Rooms Glasgow.14 May 2010.
Pale gold colour, shaving foam head, hints of grass and lemon on the nose. Lemon peach and grapefruit tang.
Best beer of its kind to come out of Scotland for ages(ever). On form it is Jaipur’s, younger, slighter better behaved little brother.

Bottle at home. Very pale yellow colour, medium white head. Hop nose of grapefruit and pear, some lychee freshness, some citrus. Palate is dry with the slightest hint of fruity sweetness throughout, under lots of lemony grapefruit hops and then a dry mouth-puckering finish. High carbonation helps it refresh even more. Stunning hoppy session beer.
