3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Nov 09, drank Jun 09.
Poured into a pint glass, it looked a golden pale colour. A firm white head sat on top, this head slowly became a collar and wispy covering.
Hoppy aroma, not overpowering, but strong enough to hide anything else.
Pale and Crystal malts used in the brew, but the hops win the battle of the flavours like they did in the nose. There are some citrus notes within the taste as well.
Good mouthfeel considering it is only 3.6% ABV beer, plenty of taste and bite to it. A nicely put together beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bitter, hoppy for an ordinary bitter. Watery and gassy. Not bad at all especially as a session beer. Will try again.

[Cask at Y Branwen, Harlech] Golden amber with a large white head. Served rather cold, but as it warmed it revealed flavours of fruit, lemon and biscuit. A good mouthfeel, and decent flavour for a low ABV session ale, but felt it would have been improved if served without a sparkler.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. The latest in a seemingly endless procession of golden ales at this festival. Nothing particular in this one to distinguish it from the opposition. Clean, with a twist of lemony citrus. Not a lot else going on. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Middle-of-the-road. Should probably try it again without the distraction of so many similar beers.

@ Bow. Golden with nice lace. Aroma of grassy hops. The palate is soft and the flavors are balanced with nice hop, slight hydrogen peroxide oddly and nice lingering hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brassy colour. The aroma mixes toast and caramel. Mild, toasty character with slight juiciness in the finish but otherwise pretty boring.
