Hazy golden beer with a slight citrus aroma. Flavour is mild citrus with a floral hop edge. Finish is slightly watery but it’s drinkable.

tdtm82 (1522) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
On cask at The Woolpack, Chelmsford, 23/1/2015. None of the beers sampled last night were kept well. This one was a complete mess. Other than a good head and image it was diacytyl. Huge rubber. Loads of burnt tires. Some fruity yeast esters but it was incredibly off. Should not have been on. At least learn to look after beer before running a pub.

Towey1989 (1183) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Cask at The Victoria Lounge, Hanley. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, some orange and sugar. Taste is similar of fruity malt, lemon, grapefruit, some orange, caramel and some sugar. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. This is not a bad golden ale from Greene King. Citrusy and well balanced but maybe a little sweet.

miquelcrush (1969) - Granollers, SPAIN - MAY 9, 2015
Cervesa amb bona aparènça, en boca destauen les maltes amb un lleuger toc a llúpol. Cerveza con buena apariencia, en boca destacan las maltas con un ligero toque a lúpulo.
