330ml bottle, pours pale gold, small white lace. Ginger and lemon, floral notes and light malt. Body is light, texture is oily. Finish is mildly astringent and finishes dry. Nice enough, perhaps needs a bit more spice or hop flavour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 6, 2014 - on handpull at (Craft Clerkenwell??). Clear and bright light gold, slightly oily-looking, lasting white head. Floral golden ale aroma, but unwelcome hints of paper and oil paint. Taste is all lemon and lemon grass - delicately floral and grassy in behind, not much alcohol - surprisingly nice (7+). Light body and astringency, decent cask carbonation, finishes quick and crisp, a dry lemony linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours orange-yellow in colour with a white head and a lot of effervescence. On the nose: slightly musty, lemony, earthy aroma with a slight ginger spicyness. Sweet to taste with a gentle bitterness. Flavours of fruit and spice, the ginger is nice and subtle. Ends dry and with a good, lemon tartness. Chilled on a warm day, a very pleasant and refreshing beer.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle BBE: 16.1.16. Well-chilled. Pours a cloudy pale amber with no head and floaters. Medium intensity aromas of honey, ginger, orange peel and earthiness. A little tart to begin, with a moderate sweetness following up. Flabby, lacking bitterness. Light-bodied, watery, insipid, fizzy, earthy ginger finish. It’s different, granted, but this is not an experiment to follow-up on.
