Cask at the GBBF 2008. Golden colour, low head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruits, notes of flowers and honey too. Nice hoppy flavour, moderate malts and fruit, then an assertive bitterness takes over.

Rune (10834) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2008
Half pint. Gravicask. Straw-yellow body under a thin, white head. Weak floral nose. Spicy fruits in flavour ending on a rounded malty backbone. Quit well bodied, but straightforwardly (evening session at London Drinker BF, 13.03.2008).

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
Cask handpull at London Drinker BF 08. Pale gold, lasting bubbly white head. For me, it has diacetyl on the aroma. OK, after that. Decent citrusy hoppy golden beer, but the diacetyl spoils it for me.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Cask @ the Crown Inn, Stockport. First beer of my Manc visit and a hard act to follow. Pale gold with a fluffy white head. The conditioning was amazing, just a slight swirl and the glass went white. Grassy hops and tropical fruits in the nose, some sweetness. Taste is a full on bitter hop assault with citrus, tropical fruits and subtle malt undertones that add body and depth. Excellent lip smackingly dry finish, great mouthfeel and good length, gives Brewers Gold a run for it’s money IMHO. One of my top picks of the trip in one of my favorite pubs of the trip also...
