Rather liked this simple ale. Light, soft, velvety body and light but complimentary hops.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2009
Cask (Black Door, Helsinki)
Pale yellow, small loose head. Slightly farty fruity hop aroma. Big citrus lemon zest kick in the mouth, but has no depth. Fairly tasty simple malts and a decent bitter bite, which stays for a bitter finish. OK golden ale. Very good for using only nobly UK hops - others would run off to new-world hops, I’m sure.

ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2009
Cask at the Wellington, 29th December 2008. Absolutely exquisite. Very dry, hoppy and sharply bitter. Pale gold colour with white mainly diminishing head. A good ale for a session, and recommended.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2009
Coarse white lasting head. Yellow body. Faint dusty fruity aroma. Dry floral wooden taste with some sweetness. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Light-bodied. Dry lingering wooden dandelion aftertaste. Nice, light, drinkable, not terribly remarkable. (0.25l cask, The Harp, Covent Garden, London.)

SaintMatty (5079) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2009
500ml Bottle - Golden coloured with a white head and moderate carbonation. Grassy and hoppy aroma with pineapple and tea. Fairly hoppy taste with grapefruit, pineapple and a pleasant bitterness. The bitterness fades a bit in the finish but is still very pleasant.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Handpulled cask at the Boot, St. Albans..Golden coloured with hoppy and floral aromas. Crisp on the palate and slightly spicy. Dry lasting malt flavoured finish.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Lion, Liverpool. Golden colour with a lingering creamy white head and decent lacing. Clean, citrus flavour and cracking hops. A really pleasant surprise and definitely sessionable. There’s Gold in them hills !

TimE (3091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2008
Lots of fresh hoppy, leafy character going on that was really enjoyable and a moderately bitter finish, but too much about hops and the rest of the beer is forgotten about.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2008
Cask, 3.8% at GBBF08. Hazy golden colour. OK fruity flavour. Low to medium bitterness. Slightly boring, but OK fruitiness.
