Cask 5% version Last Post Paisley. Think this is brewed exclusively for Spoons & Nicholsons. Poured golden with deep haze. Probably a bit "green" to be ready but an excellent modern Golden IPA. So much more body with the extra alcohol and perfect for our infrequent summer nights. The fact that it was preceded by a dreadful "Cally American IPA" probably accentuated the pleasure of this one but worth sourcing when you can.

Cask. Golden with a white head, fruity citrus aroma, malt, hops and pine in the taste. I think served a teeny bit colder it would have been amazing and I think it’s missing a tiny element of sweetness, but overall it’s pretty good.

DanielBrown (3925) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2012
Hand pulled at the Shakespeare (Summer Row), Birmingham. Golden ale, with cream top. Expected nothing here, but got quite a bit. Stewed citrus hop, with lemony freshness and a marigold of sherbet. Easy to swig, but flavoured front and back. Good.

Pale, slight hint of lemon, very hoppy. Easy drinking and refreshing, but strong. If you like pale beers, this is near the top.
