Fresh, warm scent. Cumin? Rich, citrus and malt flavor. Smooth palette. Inviting.

allmyvinyl (6297) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Cask at Winstons. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Light spice aromas, light caramel. Taste is light sweet, lemony bitter. Fishes a tad thin.

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2015
On cask @ the Grosvenor. Appearance - golden with a light haze and a nicely proportioned head. Nose - lemon and grapefruit and zesty. Taste - all about citrus pith and zest no fruit. Lemon zest and pith mostly. Palate - light bodied with a lean tight zingy texture and a long dry finish. A bit too bitter for my palate. Overall - a bit one dimensional but decent.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Rising Sun, Manchester 27 Jan 13. Lys gylden. Lavt tett skum med teppelacing. Forsiktig fruktaroma & smak. Litt malt i ettersmaken. Litt kjedelig.

stravale (2490) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 5, 2013
Cask @ Diggers, Edinburgh [280213]
Amber, clear, dense white head, good lacing
Aroma of light hoppy pale fruits
Taste of soft citrus hops, soft zest, fairly fruity light pale malts, touch of lemon, although its fairly generic - it’s pretty decent
Palate - Medium body. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Above average fairly hoppy golden ale - I thought it was rather good

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Golden with big off white head. Bitter tasting malt dominates. Very smooth, next to no carbonation. Bit of fruit coming in at the finish. Dry citrus and unripe plum. I like this one. On Tap @ Counting House, Glasgow.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2012
Nice light session style beer. Aroma is primarily malt with a light fruit note. Taste is actually surprisingly fruity and quite citrus in nature. More sour than bitter. Interesting take on the style.

ManVsBeer (5800) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Good looking seasonal mild which is hoppy in its character and is nice to drink.
