DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle, February 2015. Greenish, lightly misted gold slicked with white. Red polished apple, melon, Fruit Salad and kumquat on the snout. Rousing, uncompromising bitterness rasping with tonic, Fruit Salad chew and punishing flowers. Bristling, sappy and slightly harsh. None of that southern Jessie softening malt nonsense. Very good.

JohnRMurdoch (3781) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2015
500ml bottle from Ber Gonzo. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Grain boiled sweet aroma. Hoppy strawberry flavour. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste. Fizzy on palate. Another solid hoppy golden ale from Mallinson’s. Think the other raters have been harsh here.

Leighton (13954) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose holds some pale bread, minerals, lemon rind. Light sweet flavor with heavy, oily grassy bitterness, some dirt, wood. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes oppressively bitter, with more grass, some grain husk, light bready sweetness. Not very drinkable.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Cask thanks to Fergus. It pours clear golden amber with a small white head. The nose is fairly wishy washy, grassy, straw, toasty grain and porridge. The taste is rather bitter, straw, big grassy action, soap, harsh bitterness, lemon rind, pepper and burnt plastic with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. A bit all over the place....

mR_fr0g (5356) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Cask at the craft beer co clerkrnwell. Aroma is light grains, tea bag, earthy bark, hedgerow hop. Flavour is base grain, sharp grapefruit back of the throat bitterness. Balance is way off, bit harsh grassy bitterness. Palate is light and grainy, decent cask condition. Way too bitter.

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. These Aramis hops are bitter bastards! Astringent and grassy with a little licorice and aniseed. Bitter bitter crisp finish. A little malt sweetness - well buried. A spot of Mallinsons soap as well. Too bitter!

zacgillbanks (3178) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Aroma of sweet malt and a gentle spiciness , perhaps clove and allspice. Flavour gives a gentle malty sweetness. Pleasant beer but not outstanding

gwoodin (44) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
500ml bottle: strongly hopped, attractive in glass with long-lasting white head on gold beer. Herbal taste, quite bitter, lasting finish. Overall: a worthy effort.
