An elegant, straw coloured bitter. The hint of sweetness is complemented by subtle hop flavours, leading to a dry finish. Brewed using Maris Otter pale Ale malt, Hobson's yeast and finished with Worcestershire Goldings and Herefordshire Progress hops.

Camrakipah (17) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2008
Draught Pints at Drum and Monkey (Nr Solihull UK) and The Coach and Horses in Weatheroak. Slightly earthy aroma and deeper golden appearance than Hobson Best. Flavour similar to Best but a little more malty and longer lasting. Slightly bitter after-taste but more of a rounded Pint than Hobson Best.

[Odense-tasting at Scheffel. Bottle from Christian.] Notes of weak fruity aroma, flat carbonation, some hops and an impression of somewhat mainstream!

Dedollewaitor (14844) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle: Unclear yellow with a bubbly white head. Grassy Citrus/malty aroma. Low carbonation. Rather soft texture. Nice lacings & some good solid hops in the taste. Very simple, not bad, not really good either. OK

Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, Christian]
Pours a pale golden with little head. Aroma is mild, slightly woody and grassy. A bit thin. Flavour is limited as well, some dry bitterness creeps in along the malty sweetness, but nothing exciting...

oh6gdx (23259) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, slight nectar and some earth. Flavour is quite papery bitter with some hints of fruits. Leaves a tickling feeling on the tongue. Not the most exciting brew I have had.

Cask Conditioned at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Hazy golden color. Light fruity aroma: white wine, lemon peel. Some malt flavor, high bitterness, aromatic enough; strange crossover between Golden Ale and white wine. Very long final. Refreshing. Dry.

caesar (5890) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2007
Cask @ Jan Primus. Slight hazy yellow golden color, short head. Aroma of typical english hop (Goldings I presume), quite flowery, bit malty, according to Savad it also contains some skin of yellow plums. Moderate bitter taste. Decent bitter.
