COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Formerly known as Celtic Dragon and brewed at 4.6%.
Also available bottle conditioned as Extravaganza.
A refreshing contemporary cask conditioned golden ale full of citrus taste and aroma. This ale is brewed using a single pale ale malt giving at a lovely golden colour. Citrus flavoured hops are used during the boil to produce an intense fruity flavour which is often enjoyed as a more flavorsome alternative to lager.

500ml bottle from Real Ale Warehouse. Pours clear gold, no head. Aromas are butterscotch and apple crumble. Taste is more diacetyl-butterscotchness and light spicy hops. Light body, thin texture. Slightly astringent finish. Might be better in the bottle-conditioned version, but I wouldn’t rush to find out.

Gurthnar (1653) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle shared by Cuso. Aroma is mostly hoppy. Earthy, grassy, I can say British. Clear golden colour. Taste is initially sweetish grainy malty. After a moment balancing earthy hops appear. Thinnish body, nicely drinkable. Good British character.

BlackHaddock (3642) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD Jan 2014, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 24th July 2013. Yet another golden citrus flavoured UK beer: I’m bored with them! Slight haze to this golden bodied brew: a thin fading white head sat on top. Sweetened lemon nose and taste: citrus feel throughout the tasting, yet there is a sweet undertone also in every mouthful. Nothing wrong with this, just me being idle with my writing. OK, but blends into so many other similar brews of this type currently in Britain.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a golden coloured beer with toffee, slight sugary and sour fruity flavours followed by a bitter-sweet finish.
