2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

Pours cloudy amber. Not overly impressed. Very malty taste. Smooth to drink, but nothing memorable.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden blonde ale, with a thick foam head and plenty of life. There are only very weak aromas of caramel, however flavour is greatly different, intense citrus and bitter flavours burst in the mouth and you can feel the every last drop on your tongue. A very refreshing beer with a smooth finish from the caramel, another brilliant creation from the Lymestone Brewers!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Slightly hazy orange colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is wood, mild bitter floral and grassy notes as well as some slight maltyness. Flavour is rather similar with crisp maltyness and quite rich carbonation. Nice bitter and earthy finish.
