sm89walt (1777) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2012
Cask - The Cottage, Norwich. Poured a clear golden amber with a fine & lasting, tighly lacing white head. Subtly floral & citric aromas. Some grain, yeast & toasty, biscuity malts on the tongue. Light to medium body, soft palate texture finishing with a short citrus hop & grassy bitterness. A very typical golden ale.

tombyars (1396) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in August 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Hazy gold in colour with a thin white head. Slight dusty note of hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a slight digestive biscuit note with tart grapefruit and crisp green apple fruit notes. Metallic hop resins impart a bitter tang to the long aftertaste. Finish is malty with a hint of sweet barley sugar. An ok summer session Golden Ale.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2008

bobinlondon (1257) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Perfect looking pull, gold with slowly clearing creamy white head, without the use of a sparkler. Good hoppy aroma. No strong flavours but a perfect blend of gentle sweet malt and subtle citric hops. Very well brewed and good enough for a second pint despite another scoop being available on the bar!

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’07. Gold with a nettly hop aroma. Rather thin soapy-water taste. Low bitterness. Disappointing.
