Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a foamy, white head. Delicate nose of dry straw, light grass and faintly tosted dough. Light sweet flavor with a sturdy bitterness of grass and pale hay. Some light, dry and pale malts in there. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Excellent condition. Dry finish with a light but assertive grassiness and mild, biscuity malts. This is a very solid golden ale.

jamestulloch (1244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Aroma: Bread and citrus. Slightly soapy.

Appearance: Pale golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing.

Taste: Reminiscent of Jarl, but with more of a pale malt backbone. Very bitter with a surprising amount of flavour for 3.5% ABV - grapefruit, straw and biscuit. Dry, peppery finish.

Palate: Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation.

Overall: An excellent low ABV Golden Ale, with a nice level of bitterness and flavour.
