Bottled. Fine malty body, on the sweet side. Rather thin. Nothing to make this stand out.

Cask at the Guildford. Pale gold pour, thin white head. Light lemon and dusty malt aromas. Taste reminds of a stronger Deuchars. Ok.

500ml bottle. Gold amber colour, foam white head leaving some lacing, and aroma of caramel & light citrus. Taste is crystal malt, caramel, alittle earthy & biscuity, with some citrus bitterness. Watery mouthfeel, light bodied, medium carbonation, dry light bitter finish. OK.

13th July 2013
Bright clear amber beer, tidy off white head. Palate is light and crisp. Clean malt with a trace of unsweet toffee. Light tangy fruits in the mid. Very slight bitterness in the semi dry finish. A passable beer but for an IPA - lame and almost hop free!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge drunk at home. Clear orange gold colour lasting beige head. Toffee on aroma. Eeek is it supposed to taste like this? A bit musty. Vague hop on end. Musty finish. Bad bottling? Or just a not very nice beer? Drain pour to be honest.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This makes a pleasant session beer which leaves me wanting more. Which is a pleasant change. Its not heavily hopped but has a nice grapefruity edge to it but not long lasting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A nondescript beer that delivered very little of the hops promised by the brewer. An easy drinker that is pretty cheap.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vino WIne Shops, Morningside
Amber, some haze, thin frothy white head, minimal lacing
Aroma - pale sweet malts, light hay, soft grassy hops, light citrus, not very hoppy
Taste - pale sweet malts, hay malts, soft grassy hop. bit of citrus zest, not that hoppy, good balance between malt and hops though, generally subtle and easy drinking
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour with short light zesty linger.
Overall - I agree that it has been classified as a Golden Ale, itís not hoppy enough to be a true IPA, but itís pleasant subtle beer. I think itís rather underated here.
