Tossco bottle. Yellowy urine pour misty with bits. Dissipating white lid. Struck matches, musty green hop, spliff and lime jelly aroma. I’m getting a powerful gust of Goldings as it approaches room temp. Bathfoam, grass and corn in the mouth, pleasantly citrussy but crying out for some added hop bite. Maize and mealy malt the most assertive flavours here. With a big lick of soapdish. Refreshing, but so’s Corona or Sprite.

500ml bottle from Tesco. I would agree with the comment below about soapiness, which dominated this beer for me. Pale gold in colour with no head but a fair bit of carbonation. Aroma of oriental spice and lemony hops. Flavour was sweetish with plenty more spicy hops and a soap dish finish. Almost very good, but not quite.

500ml bottle from some supermarket somewhere, Tesco I think. BCA. Pale gold with lasting this white head. Lovely lemongrass hop aroma. Lovely citrus flavour. Bit soapy isn’t it? Still, it’s pretty good.

Cask @ some Soho pub, London.
Pours lightly hazy yellow with a small, frothy white head. Fine duration. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, mostly pine and grapefruit. Low carbonation with a nice mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderfully hoppy, fruity and floral and quite dry. Very refreshing.

(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold color with a soapy white head. Aroma is very spicy and zesty with lots of hops and floral notes. Flavor is spicy as well with a dry and grainy middle, flavors of biscuits and dough, and a spicy and hoppy middle.

Cask at wellington Arms, Bedford. Very pale gold with a white head. Initially sulphurous, then citric hoppy aroma and taste with some biscuit, followed by a bitter finish. Not too bad.
