Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A very pale golden ale. A real hoppy beer packed with American Columbus hops - very bitter and thirst quenching with a satisfying herbal finish and massive aromas.

davet100 (16) - Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2011
On cask at Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club. Pours golden with a hoppy aroma. A very impressive beer, with a complex character and brimming with somewhat tropical flavours. Fruity on the palate with hints of orange and other citrus flavours but leading to a dry finish with a fairly moderate bitterness. Big fan!

AshtonMcCobb (2935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2014
On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - pale golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and grapefruit. Taste - grapefruit and grapefruit pith. As it goes on its all pith. So bitter. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Too dry for such a thin body. Overall - way too bitter for me.

Theydon_Bois (9948) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Cask at the Euston Tap, 03/08/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate off white head that retains. Nose is earthy hops, mineral notes, bitter orange, straw. Taste comprises orange peel, straw, hint of red grapefruit, chalky mineral bite. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Decent enough earthy hop number.

pale golden with grapefruit peel aroma, pithy bitterness with dry hop finish. Light bodied but a sessionable thirst quencher.

McNeillR (1328) - SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Crisp still golden, wee white head. Dried out lemon rind nose, slightly clinical edge. Soft peppery, lightly oily and a very crisp drinkability. Big lemon cordial middle, dilluted with a light malt before an easy bitter finish. Fresh try linger. Decent, easy going golden.

Cask, York Tap, [21/10/13]

Fin (7694) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask, gravity at The Beer in Hand, Hereford, Saturday 9th November 2013. Pours gold in colour, condition very good, sparkling with just a few light bubbles dancing across the top. Wonderfully hoppy, plenty of hoppy burps. Fresh, tasty beer. Crisp zippy, lemony and grapefruit flavours, very nice beer, I concentrated less on rating and more on guzzling we had three of these.

Old Fountain. Cask. Almost clear gold beer. Tidy off white head. Light palate, a little crispness. Light thij malt. A very nice sweetish floral vibe gives way to a mildly sherbet lemon - lime. There is a whisper of yeasty sulphur that stops me bolting this. Finishes light and dry with some parma violets emerging. Well - a surprise all right. A new Otley high for me. Very very drinkable.
