500ml bottle. Little aroma, little flavour. Gold colour. There is bitterness. I found this one very difficult to review.

Bottled. Straw coloured with a thin white head. Hops and lemon on the nose. A dry start with hops and pine, then a sweeter citrus middle, followed by a dry, clean finish. A decent summer or session ale.

Pale light golden colour, diminishing white head. Floral hoppy aroma, citrus, malts, biscuit, light grass, summer field. Malty sweet, quite bitter flavour. Medium body, quite nice for the ABV. Malty finish, citrus, floral hops, some lingering bitterness.

Cask at Waggon and Horses, Halesowen. Gold with pretty lacing. Solid, unspectacular, proficient etc. clicky gold hops, with honey and cereal. Pretty tasty. Easy to drink.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Handful at The Ship (Monument). Very bright slightly light clear gold with a solid creamy/foamy lasting white head. Aroma is vaguely grassy, white wine, a hint of sultanas. Taste - golden ale grassy/grainy backbone, some weird very tart green fruit overlay - rhubarb? - not much alcohol. Slick, average body and carbonation, finishes quick leaving just a vague green fruit sourness behind. Interesting.

AshtonMcCobb (2131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket, Edinburgh. Pours golden with a nice head. The nose has meadowsweet and lemon. The lemon takes over the taste somewhat and there’s a pale malt backbone. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy texture in the middle section and a clean finish. Overall, a solid ale.

RichardGretton (4184) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish head. The aroma is lightly hopped and the flavour is very well hopped with a large amount of bitterness. Overall a really nice well hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle - pale gold with a thin white head. A small amount of carbonation helps the citrus kick along, although is a little thin on the body. A nice summer beer.
