3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at the Pommelers Rest, London in July 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale cloudy straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong note of lime cordial in the intense aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with strong fruit notes of syrupy lychees, grapefruit and lime. Strong metallic notes from the intense hop resins cut a swathe through the aftertaste. Sweet golden syrup notes in the finish balance things up in the end. An excellent session Golden Ale.

500ml bottle at 4.8%. Pours orange gold with a small head. Aroma has a lovely citrus twang but far too much diacetyl underneath. Taste has citrus to start with a buttery, citrus finish. Oily mouthfeel.
