Cask at The Green Ginger, Torquay. Pleasant Golden. Very well balanced between dry bitterness and sweet citrus. Easy to swig and cheering enough (hurray!). A good palate perker.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Cask at The Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a pale golden colour with a medium, loose white head. Aroma or citrus and floral hops with some fresh Granny Smith apples. Peach and apricot dominates the initial flavour, followed by light cloves and biscuity malt. Palate is quite light by contrast with notes of lemongrass and cereal.

#6 - Golden Pale Ale, very mellow in flavour, 5.2% abv. The normal citrus flavours.. I do like it, however that lack of much flavour makes it something Iíd only order go with a meal.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! Served in my new Cantillon tulip. Thanks again Matt! A: Hazy yellow hue with a thick, fluffy white head of just over an inch. The head fades to half an inch and leaves considerable lacing throughout the glass. S: The aroma consists of spices, floral scents, hops, yeast. It smells very nice. T: The taste is bready and floral, with the hop character being more subtle than the aroma indicated. This beer tastes quite fresh. Itís refreshing and light, with a healthy amount of complexity about it. M: Thin bodied, with a bitter hop presence in the finish. D: My first beer of this style, I rather enjoyed this.
