3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 500ml bottle served from the fridge in a chalice. Greeny gold with a delicate white head. Lemony aroma, lemon-lime & pineapple flavour with a dry straw finish. Light carbonation. Very quaffable, ideal for a hot summer day, but could do with a good bit more hop bitterness in the finish to lift it a point or two. 14/07/2012, Another 500ml bottle, fridge cold after a vigorous day of housework in muggy temperatures. I decided Iíd been a bit stingy before. Absolutely spot-on in this context, so Iíve lifted it a point or two, and revised my opinion about it needing more bitterness. Lovely, and Iím glad Iíve got another chilling in the fridge.

Cask at The Saracens Head, Symonds Yat East. Gorgeous pale golden with thin nice foam. Champagne nose, crisp hoppy body, tart round tasty bittering, lemon citrus. Still cask, smooth, northern european hops. Really nice and stood out, not the normal golden ale I often saw.

Bottle from Bernieís Real Ale Office License, Shirley. Pale, limey gold with a skim of head. Chiefly hop-driven aroma; pineapple, melon, red apple. Hint of pig pen. Slight and perfumed with lemon and lime jelly, pineapple, slight toasted bread notes, straw. The pig pen again. Bit of monkey nut in the aftertaste. Some decent hops fading into dung-speckled emptiness. Lacks condition.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Draft House. Clear, lovely gold pour with a foamy, white head. Nose holds a lot of orange and honey. Flavor not as great, bit of messy malts, mild citrus, some bread. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with some dry, straw hops, light malty sugars. Not bad but not good.

500ml bottle. Pours a very pale gold with a thin head. Aroma is bread, straw and lemon. Taste is citrus notes to start and a citrus bready finish. Pleasant, if a bit boring.
