Clear copper body, white head. Aroma of bready malt, fruity soap, caramel. Flavour has smooth grainy and toasty malt, sweetness, but bit flat. Nice though.

Cask at The Old Fountain, 22/6/12. Unfined; pretty hazy. Ultrafine sediment causes it to form a hazy cloud of very fine bubbles when disturbed. Golden orange. Sparse head. Faint floral-sweet aroma, with some tropical character. Taste is sweet, grape, grassy, floral and a touch of lychee. Quite a creamy texture; not very tangy or astringent for an IPA of this sort. Also some good, complex spicy hop tastes.

Peachy aroma. Deep yellow with a thin creamy white head. Slightly hazy. Slightly sweet with peaces, mango, and cirtus. Hop level gives excellent balance.

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2012
Style note: this is not a bitter, its an ipa or hoppy gold/blonde. Misclassified here. Moving on... cask at marble beerhouse in chorlton. Light gold with very thin white head. Aroma orange, peach, caramel. Taste is full of fruity citrussy hops... orange, sour peach, guava. Also grassy and there’s some malt in there (but not a lot cuz its not a bitter!). I’d say Marble’s Spring beats this in the same style, but Lagonda is still excellent.

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark golden beer with a light but reasonable head. The aroma is very bitter and hopped, and the flavour is also very bitter and florally hopped. Overall a reasonable well hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (4379) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Cask. Bright golden color with a small white head. Nose is pine, flowers, a nice walk through the country side. Some bright lemon. The taste is more cut grass, aromatic sweetness. Great standard citrus IPA notes. Bitter finish. One indeed for hop fans. Light/medium body. Overall, pleasing IPA!

Idiosynkrasie (3633) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2012
500ml bottle. Hazy yellow to orange with small frothy lasting white head. Fruity and bitter hop aroma, citrus and orange, some grass. Taste is a bit watery in the beginning, dry, bitter, some citrus, not completely harmonically integrated. Grassy finish. Not bad, but not cutting edge.

Bottle from MyBrewerytap.com. Pours hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of fruity moderate fruity hops. Taste is the same, moderate but nice bitter, turns more resiny towards the end. Very good and refreshing.

Sigmund (4952) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle conditioned, as Manchester Marble Organic Lagonda IPA, 5% ABV. Kindly shared by gunnar. Golden colour, large to moderate white head. Moderate but nice hoppy aroma, notes of spruce. Hoppy flavour too, not very sweet. Piney and grapefruity notes. Good beer.
