Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are gooseberry with white grape juice and low grapefruit. Caramel with hints of honey and lemon. Fairly spicy with some floral aspects. Flavours are sweet lemon with grape juice and plenty of pepper. Dry and woody with bitter grapefruit. Very good.

mingos (63) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Clear golden ale with a 1 finger white creamy head that is quickly reduced to a thin layer, but leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is exclusively hoppy, with citrus fruit being the most exposed, but with some tropical fruit in the background as well. No malt detectable. Taste: similar to the aroma; extremely fruity. Some herbal & resinous notes appear in the aftertaste. The bitterness is moderate, grapefruity. Medium body, low to medium carbonation. This beer should be presented as the perfect Golden Ale. It has absolutely everything that should be in one, with no flaws that I could detect. It’s tasty, it smells lovely, it’s drinkable and thirst quenching. A highly recommendable one.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
2015-09-27. Very hazy orange body with a creamy beige head and lace. 3++ Aroma of pithy oily lemon citrus, lightly musky undercurrent. 6++ Flavour is mild, lightly muddled pithy citrusy hops. Lemon seed notes in the finish have a slightly off putting quality to them. 6++ Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Okay. Possibly better on draught and a little less cloudy. Cask at The Lamb & Flag, Leeds.

Piwo bursztynowe, przejrzyste. Piana średniopęcherzykowa, nietrwała, lepi szkło. W aromacie cytrusy, trochę ziołowości. Podobnie w smaku. Goryczka niska do średniej. Wytrawne by nie powiedzieć wodniste. Wysycenie średnie. Bez rewelacji. Można wypić i zapomnieć.

w_adwersarz (402) - Cracow, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Piana dość obfita, niezbyt ładna, podziurawiona i bardzo szybko się rozpadła. A odgłosy wydawała jakbym oranżadę, albo colę lał do szkła. Barwa jasna złota, opalizująca, ładnie pracuje. Aromat świetny, dużo owoców tropikalnych, marakuja, liczi, są też cytrusy i odrobina żywicznych klimatów, ale delikatniejsze niż tropiki. A na końcu słody, lekko ciasteczkowe. W smaku jest owocowe, cytrusowe, lekko kwaskowe, potem lekka słodowa kontra. Wysycenie wysokie, wytrawne, goryczka średnia z cytrusowym finiszem.
