This is great session beer, really refreshing and packs a real citrus and grapefruit punch. Its pale golden colour and thick brilliant white head make for an enticing ale, with it’s dry finish is leaves you craving more. It is well deserving of its awards and hopefully inspire more beers like it!

Theydon_Bois (9935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Autumn BF, Englefield Green, 11/10/13. Clear golden with a thin off white head. Nose is toasty malt, citurs, orange, a little subdued. Taste carries more depth, orange pith, toasty malts, lemon rind. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish. Not enough hop presence for an APA - good old golden blonde in my book, an average to drinkable one at that.

(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma of pale malt, lemon zest and a touch of biscuit. Grapefruit, lemon, hop flavour with a nice subdued sweet malty background. Lovely beer.

McNeillR (1325) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Paler golden body than the others. Film of frothy white head. Juicy and a touch farty nose. Tingling creamy mouthfeel. Subtle tropical fruit in a light malt. Dry undulating finish. Wee bit too bitter linger. Best of the bunch.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Live rate. 500ml bottle. Dusty yellow gold with a bright foaming head. Lemony aroma with distracting rust and aluminium. Decent floral, lemon zest and lemon infused sponge notes upfront leading to a slightly earthy, monkey nut-like malt finish with a likeable tweak of bitterness. Better than expected.

kwik-lime (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Cask at Euston Tap. Refreshing citrus giving way to quite a dry hop finish. Enjoyable session beer.

Leighton (11865) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a stupidly tight, white cream head. Pleasant though mild aroma, pale malts, light dried citrus and lemon in particular, some hay. Light sweet flavor, lightl citrus fruits, mellow bitterness, straw, lots of tasty, dried pale malts.ight bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, lightly dry finish, some dirty hay, nips of tangerine. Very nicely balanced APA.

bellinghamd (6) - - MAR 4, 2013 does not count
Aroma: subtle: very very light hops Appearance: syruppy amber; dense worn ivory head Taste: Suprisingly three-dimensional given the almost total lack of aroma: exciting mix of salt, sweet, sour and bitter - very strong grapefruit. Palate: medium body; slightly oily texture; lively carbonation disappearing rapidly; quite rough but lasting finish Overall: Very interesting bitter, with three-dimensional qualities which don’t quite hold together for top marks; the after-taste keeps you thinking as it shifts from salt to sweet to sour. Not a social beer as it’s too intriguing in its own right. Aptly titled Pipedream !

Fruity aroma in a healthy golden ale with a thick creamy head. Is hopped based and those used give it a heavy texture. Fruit flavours.
