3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2003 Amazingly light beer for an English ale. Nonetheless, this straw colored, foamy brew is a good quencher, in the manner of, say, Cooper's Sparkling ale. Aroma is like grass, drying in the sun. Flavor is hop-dominated, crisp and distinctly dry with a grassy hint. I don't mind this stuff, but I think they're paying their label writer extra bucks for hyperbole. Good summer refresher. Yeasty Oberon-like flavor noted also, this is not bad.

Unusual pale lemon appearance, unfiltered with a white foam. Aromas of honey, lemon, banana. A very fresh beer. Surprisingly bitter malty taste with medium body. Grassy and fresh. Would be great on a summers day as a refreshing beer, not my usual style but would recommend.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very different than ussual appearance. Hazy light lemon/honey color with lively frothy white foam.
Aromas of malt and yeast, lemony, banana, fresh and saison like?
Palate, medium body with thickish texture with hoppy finish.
Taste is bit hoppy bitterish, but still it has its golden lightness and grasseness to it.
Overall, nice refreshing, standart hoppy golden beer. But it looks really nice to me appearance wise.

Simply put, I love this beer and travel quite a distance just to get a pint, (or 2).

Tap at Alehouse in Reading. Refreshing bitter summer ale. Grapefruit aroma, not over powering.

Bottle, hotel tasting. Crystal clear yellow color, white head with solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper and lemon peel. Taste is peppery straw, citrus. OK.

I tried this ale a few weeks back before the summer really started, and didn’t really like it, thinking that it was quite a typical ale. Now that the summer has kicked in, its the first thing that I want to see after a hard days labour. It is golden in color and in taste, with hints of banana and orange. It’s bitterness is of a kind nature, not too sweet and not harsh on the throat. It’s color is quite deceiving, pouncing up on u with 5% of kick. I hope to be able able to walk into any pub this summer and be able to order a pint of this pure gold.

Cask at The City Hotel, Durham, Ł3/pint.
Packs a lot of punch for a very pale beer with prominent malts and a long bitter finish. Good enough to warrant a second pint.

Cask @Tree Folk’s (Rome). Pours golden with a fine and persistent white head. Aroma is fruity (apple, peach) with floral notes, a touch of lemon, malt, biscuits, nice. Taste is balanced between malt and hoppy, in the perfect british mood. light body, flat, oily texture. Refined.

Una golden ale dal colore chiaro ocra, ha un sapore amaro con una discreta frizzantezza, molto fresca e bevibile e con una punta di agrumi.

Bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have grassy, floral hops, pale malts, hints of citrus, pretty bland and not to be repeated.
