BeerViking (4211) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Cask at the Magpie, deep gold with a lasting fine head, spicy and fruity hop aromas plus a hint of sulphur. Rich and dry-bitter, with undertones of tropical fruit and golden malt, and lingering grapefruit bitterness. Lovely.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival ’16. Gold with white head. There is quite a harshish flowery note from the start of this, perfumed notes, somewhat over tangy. I wasn’t overly keen on this.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Draught cask at The Rake. Slightly soapy aroma & flavour - not what I was expecting, not getting any hop flavours.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask. Settled to a clear golden colour with a medium off white head. Standard hoppy English golden ale but a good enough example. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, floral notes, fair bit of hops. Pretty bitter and clean long hoppy finish.

On keg at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Clear gold body with a foamy white head. Gentle nose of grapefruit with some citrussy hops. Flavour was a sweeter fruit with a long bitter finish. Not bad.
