theprof (520) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Light aroma, grassy - some floral notes. White head and pale gold body. Tastes towards the melon and grapefruit end of the hoppy spectrum with an after taste that is sharper and more bitter than it is initially. Resinous and lacking body. Ironically it needs better foundations.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 29 Mar 2012. Poured a lightly hazy golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of citrus, grass and brown sugar. Spicy hop flavours, with dusty grain and apricot. Finish was slightly astringent grass, resin and chalk.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
On cask at Reginald Mitchell (JDW), Hanley. Pours golden with white head. Quite a floral easy drinking pale. Nice enough.

tombyars (1595) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Tasted this in the Roebuck Inn, Hilderstone on the 31st August 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hop flowers present in the light floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a strong fruit flavour of grapefruit and lime. There is a long citrus note in the dry dusty hoppy aftertaste. Finish is again hoppy with weak lime cordial evident in the mouth. An ok session Golden Ale and it reminded me of Copper Dragon Golden Pippin in some aspects.

simcoe_citra (20) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Cask at The Sussex Arms, Twickenham. Slight citrus in the aroma. Great looking beer, crystal clear with great lacing on the glass. Bit thin without enough body to support the bitterness. Hint of flowery flavours. Overall a competent beer, would drink again.

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak floral hop leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of hoppy citrus notes on the smooth refreshing palate. Perfect for a session.
