Aroma is grassy with a little citrus. Texture is a bit on the thin side. Refreshing flavour, quite light with a bit of zesty orange peel and a dry hoppy finish.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011
Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lovely. Soft spicy fruit and a little bit of lemon peel as well. Soft and spicy with a bit of herbal character. Nice yeasty character with a lingering minerally character.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Staple Hill Oak (JDW), Bristol 16/7/10. Orange in colour with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, caramel aroma with some decent citrus hops. Flavour was also sweet, and became increasingly one dimensional to the point of being cloying. Ultimately disappointing.

berkshirejohn (4527) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2010
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Amber with a dese cream head; citrus orange aroma; creamy, grainy body with light orange citrus flavours; and a crisp finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Cask at the Hop Poles, Brighton, 13th July 2010. Amber with a line of white head. Grassy hop nose, biscuity malt taste. Average finish. Bit bland and definitely lacking bite. Is this meant to be a golden ale, because it’s failing at it.
