Golden color. Medium carbonation. Biscuit malt aroma, light herbal hoppiness. Lingering, clean hoppy flavor with a light caramel start. Finishes dry. Very solid blonde.

Godfather50 (175) - SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Pours light golden straw, good carbonation. Head disappears quick. On the nose suggestion of an interesting beer to follow. White whine delicate floral. First sip dispels any such hope. Water thin, suspicion of dextrose to boost ABV. Nasty flat beer twang, this has been oxygen contaminated or filled from a stale vat. Shame the label is great.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Cask from The White Lion, Disley, Cheshire, £3.10/pint. Good looking beer, golden with thick, white head. Smells of not much but tastes of a lot more, floral hoppiness balanced with blonde style, wheaty malts. Decent.

RichardGretton (4589) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is hopped and bitter, and the flavour is bitter with toffeeness. Overall a reasonable golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
