sound67 (456) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
[International Beer Festival, Burton-on-Trent, 2015] - Kirkstall Brewery Three Swords 4.5%. hell orange klar, angenehmes, fruchtiges Pfirsicharoma, etwas blumig dazu. Kaum wässrig, relativ voll im Mundgefühl. Im Antrunk wiederum Pfirsich, diesmal aber trocken und floral. Zur Mitte ist die Fruchtigkeit verschwunden, es bleibt die Floralität bei zunehmender Bitterkeit. Abgang hauptsächlich hopfig bitter bei einer geringen floralen Note. Nachhall mittellang und sehr moderat bitter. Sehr solides Golden Ale.

jmgreenuk (5802) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at the Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a big super frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big hop bitter, yeast, zesty citrus, light medicinal palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Refreshing for sure but I’m not convinced by the aftertaste.

From cask at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Thought I’d rated this before so rather sketchy notes. Fresh gold. Decent hops. Quite dry and refreshing. Very clean. Good. Not particularly lively condition.
