Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head, lot of sediment. Resin & tropical fruit aroma. Biscuit & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Get rid of the sediment & you have got a top class golden ale.

Very nice blond ale, strong hop aroma and taste with a big hit of fruit, an excellent beer which I would have again

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
500ml bottle, 16/06/12. Nose flowers, slight edge, fizz, geraniums, various jellies ( lemon, lime and pineapple), Fruit Salad- Centennial and Cascade? Faint misted gold with a dense stable collar climbing at the edges. Bright, green, multi-coloured tropical taste harshened with husky base and drying hop. Fine drop from one of my favourite English breweries right now.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy with pineapple, lemon, caramel and barley. Similar hoppy flavour upfront with pineapple again, wheat, grass and caramel. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Really quite bitter and tasty given the low abv.

Meet the Brewer at CP&K. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer, tiny white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Nice juicy hops - a little mango, peach and citrus orange. Nice combination. Semi dry finish. Easy drinking.

foxo82 (815) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
Cask at The Wharf, Manchester. Doesn’t live up to the name as this has a nice creamy head atop a golden body. Good lacing. Hoppy aroma and taste with nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. Some bitter lemon and pineapple amongst the hops. Very refreshing and smooth. Excellent ale.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with an outrageously tight, white foam head. Nose holds plenty of sweet dough, zesty lemon and straw. Medium sweet flavor with white sugar, dough, dry straw, mild biscuits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly drey, doughy with some crunchy hay. Basic though very pleasant.
