Fra fat på The Rake, Borough Market april-14, sammen med Håkon: gardinfilm. Litt humlearoma med gress og sitrus. Mer gress i den lette bitterheten. Mye smak og ettersmak for så lav voltstyrke, men jeg blir fort av den. Golden ales er sjelden det helt store.

Golden, aroma is lightly fruity hops with a splash of pedio. Mild bitterness, tropical fruits...good balance. Tasty bitter. The pedio isn’t really there on the palate, thankfully.

On cask @ Three Tuns, Dronfield - Clear golden beer, with a decent white head. Citrus aroma, sweet lemons predominant. Flavours are mainly citrus as well, lemon all the way, with a surprisingly low ABV for the taste. Very good.

On draft at the Furnace Inn (Derby)
My last visit to the pubs in the area revealed a few hidden treasures. With more time I am sure I could have discovered more but this has been a very memorable summer of rating. A perfect vision of an American IPA is well executed and a good deal on tap.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden body has bronze tones around the edges. Citrus, grapefruit, and a bright texture bring to mind a prototypical West Coast IPA from the wrong coast.

Flavor / Palate - Lemons, roses, and grass clippings tickle the tongue. The mouthfeel then carries into a light bitter finish that doesn’t destroy the palate after just a few sips. Flavorful and sessionable it was the highlight of the evening’s trip out.

Draught at Gallows Bird. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, caramel, grass and toast. Bitter finish with citrus and toast. Very nice real ale.
