olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a bit water/pale with white head and little lacing. Aroma is sweet, of hops and dough. Tastes very fresh, slightly cotton wool-like but very good. Bread and green veg come through

Rune (9340) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
Full pint poured from cask at The Blackfriar pub, shared with Finn. Low, lacing-head. Next to clear dark golden body. Peaches and earthy malts to the nose. Flavoured with juicy malts. Refreshing dry bitter ending. A fine interpretation of a British bitter (London, 06.11.2012).

AshtonMcCobb (3925) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2012
On cask @ the Haymarket. Pours pale, hazy and with a nice head. The nose is grassy and citrussy with just a little bit of pale malt backbone to balance. Much the same on the taste. The palate is light in body, zingy in texture and with a clean refreshing finish. Overall, yes I like this!

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
2012-10-08. Lightly hazy golden orange body, near headless beige head. Mild aroma of grassy sort of lemony hops. 6+ Flavour is similar, mild grassy lemony hops, modest English malt undercurrents. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Quaffable, but not particularly interesting, likely a bit more assertive closer to home.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2013
A - Pours a golden orange. Slightly murky with chunks of sediment floating around. Towards the end, the chunks form one blob at the bottom. 1/2 inch head the melts quick. little to no lacing. S - Citrus hops, funky lemon, a very tangy fruit/wheat flavor. Sweet bread. Sour/funky smell is unexpected but welcomed. T - Citrus hops up front, sour yeast, watered down tangy wheat, mild hops on the back of the tongue. A pretty good beer. I love the sour notes in the smell and flavor. Citrus hops dominate. Goes down smooth. Not sure if this fits the style, as this is my first English PA but a solid beer nonetheless. Serving type: bottle 07-16-2010

jonas (6101) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden, low head. Honeyish, light wheaty, citric aroma. Mellow, sparkly dry mouthfeel. Nice lemongrass, leafy, orangepeel. Grassy dry finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Floral honey and malt aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet honey barley malt flavor with lightly bitter herbal hops finish. Pretty good.

SarkyNorthener (2999) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle conditioned at 5%.Golden colour with medium head. Aroma of lemons and malt. Taste is of citrus fruits, especially lemon and sweet malts with a streak of bitterness running through. Quite crisp on the palate. A good golden ale.
