tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
Tasted this at the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2006. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale golden straw in colour with a thin white head. Very aromatic with strong floral hop notes long in intensity. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with tart lemon zest present. Strong grassy hop resins impart a floral note in the aftertaste. Finish is citrusy with pithy dryness. An ok session Golden Ale but not for me.

cgarvieuk (14075) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2007
golden coloure ale, with lots of grapefruit citrus hop and a nice balanced bitter linger

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2006
Aroma is a bit minimal but what is there is a bit like minty lemon. Tast is better a bit minimal, perhaps past its best, but bitter and grasssy.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2006
[cask from JDW] Nice hoppy aroma, lots of citric fruit. light body, dry, bitter finish. A great session ale!

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 28, 2006
NOt very interesting, too bitter for me. A lot of people say the flavour of this brewery’s products have gone.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2006
Cask conditinoed @ Standing Order(JDW), Soton. Pale colour. Grainy malts and initially aggresive citric hops which fade quickly to leave the thin malt. Perhaps slightly past its best.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Borough Arms, Crewe 20/05/2005 Golden coloured slightly pale and hoppy. Dry lasting finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
Cask@Reading BF. An average, easy to drink ale. Some light hop aromatics. Quite malty and sweet, with some citrus in the finish. Easy to drink.

ConfusedDave (2) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2005 does not count
Lovely fruity, crisp beer for a hot day after a long walk. Needs to be cooler than most cask ales

harrisoni (13286) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2005
Cask at Reading Beer Festival. Normally I like Harviestoun beers, but this one was disappointing. Mid gold colour, but thin in mouth, not a lot of nose and little overall flavour.
