Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows toffee, caramel, herbal earthy hops, orange marmalade. Moreish.
Pretty similar flavours, more slight caramel and bready malt with some earthy hops underneath.
Could use more carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 4.8% abv) Clear, amber colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, but also a woody and slightly sweaty touch, accompanied by shades of bready cara-malt. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty with a present hops profile, including notes of citrus and grapefruit; quite dry and moderately bitter, also lasting fruity hoppy finish. Easy-going Ale. 25.IX.13

Many thanks to bobinlondon for leaving this treat among others for a dead-drop pick up! Pours an orangish color with a slight haze. Smells of peach, fruit, mild floral hops. Taste is tropical fruit and floral hops ending dry and slightly bitter. Light in body and beautifully carbonated. Great stuff!

The beer smells very hoppy, It starts nice hoppy malty with the typical Ale-characteristic! Nicely hopped. The aftertaste is long, nicely bitter, round, great!

500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear golden orange with moderate-sized near white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy hops with gentle tropical fruit. Flavour has notes of flowers, light grapefruit and other tropical fruits and grass. Modest bitterness in finish. Full of flavour but easy-drinking. Nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly subdued carbonation, pure colden colour with thin white head. Peachy aroma, with hints of grassy hops, white grape, mandarin, some wild flowers and a little malt sweetness. Lovely aroma but I just whish it was bolder. Thinner than most IPA/pale ales (why its listed as a Golden I have no idea) but this aids it in being more sessionable and refreshing. Fruity flavour with some grassy and resinous hops, which leads to a big and bold yet flavoursome bitterness.
