Cask; Status uncertain.
A full-on citrus experience. Light and golden, a perfect ale for whiling away the hours on a sunny day.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville --- Slightly hazy pale gold color, good head cover, strips and strings of lace. Taste is wheaty malt that loses its place quickly as solid citrus hops enter and overstay their welcome. A lot of flavor for 3.8%, but most of it is hops. Quite drinkable, but it feels a lot like a one trick beer.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
Straw yellow with a disappointing head, it has a lovely citrus hop flavor. This beer would be awesome to drink on a sunny day.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle best before Feb 2015. It pours a pale yellow gold color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is bready and lightly citrusy with some grapefruit and grass. The flavor is very citrusy with strong grapefruit, orange and some grassy, pithy bitterness in the finish. The body is thin, but refreshing and it get more citric acidity as it spreads across the palate. There is a some light hints of bread and even some spicy noble hops toward the finish. Really a pretty nice low gravity session ale.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Cask at the brewery. Straw coloured with a tight white head; crisp citrus aroma; some sweet grapefruit adds to the flavour; and then there’s a clean finish. A really good light ale - apparently they are struggling to keep up with the demand.

Bottle. My favourite blond/golden ale. Really sessionable but packed with lovely citrus hop flavour and aroma. Highly recommended.

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt with earthy, minty, and woody hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light crisp malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Cask at the Bow Bar. Pours pale golden yellow, tun white head, aromas of citrus and straw. Taste has good bitterness, nice light caramel malt backbone. Clean finish. Good.
