500ml bottle. Golden colour, foamy white head and aroma of citrus, pine, herbal hop resin. Taste is malt caramel with citrus, woody pine and grapefruit grassy hoppy bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering bitter hop finish. Very drinkable.

leaparsons (7961) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white foam. Aromas are leafy with minerals and bready yeast. Some hints of lime with rind and melon, soapy notes. Grapefruit with creamy oak. Flavours are light grapefruit with seawater and pineapple. Lots of minerals and yeast. Some soap. Crisp lemon with lime rind. Nice.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Live at The New Penguin. Bits-in murky topped with white. Nice dirty clean hop aroma of dishcloth, pissy fur, lime juice and cheddar. Crisp resolute citrus flavour with half-arsed malt interruptions. Lime zest end on a monkey nut. Understated explosions of lime and pollen. Yessir.

jamestulloch (1260) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy golden body with (despite a fairly aggressive pour) a very thin white head. Flat carbonation. Light lacing. Weak aroma of straw, grapefruit and a hint of metal. Flavour of lemon, orange and yeast. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Faint carbonation prickle. I generally like this brewery’s beers but this one doesn’t quite hit the mark for me. Although it’s very refreshing, it’s a bit thin and weak. This bottle was 4.0% ABV.

allmyvinyl (2878) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask at Bacchus, Newcastle. Pale gold, thin white head, fruity citrus hop aromas, bready malt. Another pretty forgettable blonde ale.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 10/10/13. Very lightly hazed golden with a moderately sized off white head. Nose is light piss, apple skin, earthy hops, bitter orange. Taste comprises orange pith, grassy hop notes, citrus fruit, light toasty malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish. Solid enough GB.

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Cask at CP&K. It pours pale amber with a medium white head. The nose is grassy, leaf, grainy, lemon, grapefruit and soap. The taste is crisp, bitter, straw, grassy, soap, biscuit, pithy lemon and grapefruit with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Clean, refreshing and rather drinkable.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Hand pulled cask at the CPK Pimlico. Gold with a thick white head. Delicate malts with a hint of soap (?) perfectly balanced by the single hop variety, giving pineapple like fruit notes. Pretty good.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Amarillo and Galaxy versions drunk side by side. I’ve drunk far more of the Amarillo, so I guess that wins. It’s the hop bitterness that does it. I’m getting more orange from Goldens at the moment, these are golden ales neither is an APA. Though the tangerine was started by the Ahtanum from Kernel. Both are flavoursome enjoyable goldens. Another obs with Dom tomorrow. Another crap lesson to see therefore.

4.0% Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy pale yellow-golden coloured with sharply bitter citrus and pine flavours with a woody hop finish.
