Golden in the glass with a white head. The beer starts smooth and very floral-fruity. The mainpart is smooth, fruity-floral, Golden Ale typical, smooth. The aftertaste is slightly bitter-dry, fruity with lots of floral hop aroma.

Hand pulled cask at the Crosse Keys (JDW) Monument, London. Clear gold with a lively white head, in the peak of fresh condition. Lovely fresh hops, the Galaxy really shining through. Clean fresh malt and hops all round. So drinkable!

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. At last, the Spoons Fest is really coming to town, light hoppy dry bitter, quite lemony and grapefruit skin, fresh (surprisingly) and nicely refreshing. My best Northern Ireland beer to date.
