An excellent pale from Ilkley, pours golden in colour, pungent NZ hops in the Aroma. Taste is catty, grassy NZ hops, with a perfectly pitched bitterness for a pale ale. Nelson Sauvin hops are used to great effect here, I would easily put this beer right up there with Kernel and Magic Rocks offerings.

gegwilson (1483) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from Vesuvio, Darlington. Pours golden with a white head. Some nice tropical fruits in the aroma that doesn’t really follow through in the taste. This could do with being much more hoppy to me. It’s perfectly drinkable with some bitter citrus notes and some hay, but it needs more oomph.

Bottle from Morrisons. Bright golden colour, misty white head. Aroma is citrus orange and a touch of lychee. Taste is mostly bitter, crisp and clear though, very drinkable. A bit watery. Really more of a pale ale than a golden.
