Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grapefruit and spritzy lemon with base biscuit. Tinned pineapple juice with yeasty and floral notes. Flavours are lightly bitter grapefruit with lemony yeast. Some pine with jammy fruit. A decent hoppy brew.

Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Smooth and semi sweet airy malt. Nice lemon - lime hops with a touch of pine. Unfortunately skewed by the old Mallinsons soap. Light finish with more sweet pine. Could have been very good indeed without the soap.

Bottle conditioned. Cloudy golden pour with thick white head, tropical fruit hop aroma. Spicy bitter hop flavours with a sharp sweetness. Really rather good.

Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. Gold with white head. This was quite a lively beer, still in great condition on the third day of the festival. Good, hoppy grapefruit notes along with lemon peel and bitterness. Lengthy on the palate. Very good.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours a beautiful yellow, with big foamy head. Smells pretty sharply grapefruity. Juicy mouthfeel, mmmmmm most pleasant. To me, yes this is hoppy (yes), but also it has a sharp edge of almost burnt, almost plastic notes to the big bitter hops. Mostly delicious, but does have that hard x-factor, and I’m not sure it’s meant to be like that - in any case it causes me to knock a few marks off. Sorry.

4 Nice bitter bite, even a nice throbbing tingle afterwards.
15- Very tasty - great balance. Excellent pale bitter.

Golden ale. Much better than a golden shower, though Tommann does not agree. Delicious, hoppy, citrus... slightly overly bitter finish
