Cask, Black Pig, Cardiff. Slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish off white head. Aroma was sweet malt and fragrant hop with a dose of citrus. Flavour had similar elements and was very clean tasting, with a very long and lingering dry bitter finish.

Winner of the golden ale category at GBBF 08. Draught. Dark golden with bright clarity. Missing head. Aroma with lemon hints. Fruity and toasted malt profile in taste. Very smooth with floral-hops coming through in the mouth. Relatively anonymous (tutored tasting with Roger Protz, 06.08.2008).

500ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a huge rocky white head and a massive perfumy floral hop aroma. Those Celelia aroma hops definitely work! The flavour is similar to the aroma - floral and fruity - and there’s a good long bitter finish. Very refreshing and highly drinkable, this is a great summer beer. I was impressed!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light golden ale which shows a small cover of white foam. The nose displays lots of herbal intricacies with tart perfumey, shampoo-like hop nuances. Pretty tart and grainy mouthfeel. The beer feels disappointing after the nice and original nose. Tasty, but unappealing flavour disposition.
