"A fruity amber beer with more than a hint of hops. The bitterness carries on in the aftertaste. A superb session beer."

jamestulloch (3497) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Cask at The Centurion, Newcastle. Hazy body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head. Lacing coats the full pint glass. Aroma of biscuit and dried apricot. Flavour of bitter, earthy hops, orange pith and underripe peach. Medium body with a smooth texture. Faint carbonation prickle. A dry, simple beer. Perhaps more of a Golden Ale than a Bitter?

On cask at Ship Inn, Middlestone Moor, Co. Durham. Pours amber with frothy white head. Citrus kick with a smooth bitter finish. Very drinkable.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Pint in newcastle. Clear light orange/dark yellow colour. Very citrussy aroma. Taste was very fruity too. Dry after taste. Nice but couldn’t have this as a session ale when compared to pride etc.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Royal Blenheim Oxford 19/10/13. A golden coloured beer with a white head. A nice citrussy beer. Good lime notes. A decent body. Nicely balanced although the hop does dominate in a good way. A tasty beer.

ManVsBeer (8772) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
MOSI Beer Festival. Golden with a small head and a rustic metallic aroma. It has some fruit in its taste but an overriding bitterness.

JohnCook101 (535) - - FEB 20, 2013
On draught. Golden colour with slightly yeasty aroma and a small head that dissipates. Some light fruit initially but not too sweet, a little malt and then a slightly watery, empty middle which is made up for somewhat by a late moderately bitter finish. Not bad but not particularly memorable.

tombyars (1604) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow in October 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight note of dusty hops in the short floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit note to the malty base with a slight note of raisin fruit. Strong prickle of dusty hops adds a short bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is malt edged with a hit of golden syrup. An ok session bitter.
