On cask @ the Guildford Arms. Pours blonde with a considerable haze and a decent head. The nose has lemon and flowers with a touch of yeastiness too. The taste pretty much reiterates the yeasty lemon thing. The palate is light bodied with a lean texture which goes into the finish. Not very complicated but does the job.

Overall - looking at the comments here, may be not in best condition/ off batch. Was very average when rated.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Malt and hops. Looks almost watery clear. Light gold like Aspall but without the fizz. Tastes of stale hops. pretty poor really. Maybe the pub is to blame becaue previous comments contradict.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Bull Inn, Paisley in September 2006. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong citric notes in the nose with grapefruit evident. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong citric fruit base of kiwi and pink grapefruit - not as intense as Carte Blanche though. Strong hop resins impart a earthy dusty flavours to the aftertaste. Finish is refreshing with fruity malt still evident. A decent summer session Golden Ale.
