25th May 2014
Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Very hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is dry and a little crisp. Pithy orange and orange peel hops, medium bitterness. Light carbonated sting before the dry finish. Bitterish linger. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours dark gold with a fine white head, tropical fruit and hints of melon and honey on the nose, rich piney body has tropical fruit notes and a sharp citrus and vegetal bitterness. Perhaps more an APA than a golden ale.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
An extremely poorly crafted beer. When it has such wonderful tools at its disposal (hops and malts) something has gone badly awry. Poors golden/amber with no head, very little carbonation in this one. Aroma is almost non-existent. Some pine maybe? Body is so thin I thought I was sucking on Keira Knightley’s skeleton. As for the taste, there is a faint hint of citrus but that’s beaten into submission by earthy hops and some lasting astringent bitterness.

Cask conditioned handpump Slug & Lettuce Cheltenham 17/08/13. An orange gold coloured beer with pretty much no head. sharp citrs like hopping with dcent pale malts. Perhaps needs a bit more body from the malts but the hopping is good for sure. A nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at The Cornubia, Bristl. Gold with white head. Quite a perfumed beer, thinnish on the palate with the strange type oily note. I really didn’t take to it.
