COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Colour: Golden yellow. The use of Mount Hood as the aroma hop gives this beer a pungent hoppy fruitiness; think citrus fruit notably lime. There is also a hint of cereal malt on the nose which evokes the spirit of the mash from whence the beer came. On the palette the overwhelming sensation is citrus fruit (lime marmalade but also overripe grapes spring to mind) along with warming alcoholic esters before a bitter, hoppy and dry finish which is enlivened by lasting citrus (lime) and grainy malt making a late surge. A delicious blonde beer to be taken with care.

Copper-brown, thin white patchy head; no big aroma; thick mouthfeel; grainy malt and chewy juicy citrus fruit quickly gives way to a hoppy bitter finish; there’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s nowhere near as good as their Zig Zag Stout, which I forsook to try this.

Craft Clerkenwell, Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Dry neutral malt. Mildly tangy dried fruit hops, some orange. Whisper of bubblegum. Dry finish. Too dry.

Cask at the South Western Arms, St Denys (So’ton) - 09/09/12. Clear golden with a white head that soon thins. Sweet malt and toffee on the nose. Caramel in the taste, medium bodied with a slightly smokey dry finish.

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Live from Knickersby Spoons. Bright gold with a loose white top. Muted lime and tangerine aroma. Solid husky foundations overlaid with orange-accented hop. Some warm Tupperware impressions; almond and oatmeal traces. Bitter finish softening into pear and malted milk biscuit. Not bad.

wimpyjoe (3780) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Fine looking, golden ale with little aroma, but its fine texture ensures a great taste.

berkshirejohn (4487) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Hazy pale amber with thin white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; tropical fruit aroma - perhaps peach; a smooth floury body with an intensely sweet, tropical fruit flavour; then a pleasanlty assertive bitterness to counteract the sweetness. Nice.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 19, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin
Golden amber, clear, thin white head, good lacing
Aroma of light caramel malts, not much else here
Taste of sweet caramel malts, bitter yeast, hints of stilton cheese, stale, bit smoky, farmyard manure, very odd, urgghh
Palate - soft carb, medium body, very dry palate. Finish - very bitter with hints of blue cheese, biscuit, big big bitter linger..again uurrggh
Overall - Couldn’t finish this...a chuck out

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A regular bittersweet nose; a bit of malt, a bit of hop. A very interesting mouth and nothing like the commercial description. Tea flavours. Sweet malts. Hedgerows hops and sweetness. Really quite odd but certainly endearing.
