The Baron. Brilliant orange-gold with a fine, slim collar. Aroma slight cattiness and feta; orange and lime zest, lychee, celery like 3 week old Citra. Good spike of zesty breakfast juice and floral hop over a light biscuit base. Soft, low carbonation. Uncomplicated, juicy refreshment and a late contender for the medals.

Cask @ JDW Elgin 251112
Light amber, clear, good dense white head, good lacing
Aroma - sweet fruity pale malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, soft hop resins
Taste - citrus hops, soft grapefruit, touch of orange zest, background of fruity light caramel malts, bitterness increases towards the finish. Not a complicated beer but easy going and refreshing with a good flavour
Palate - medium body, good texture, not cloying, fresh mouthfeel. Tangy citrus medium bitter palate. Finish - nice bitter hops, soft grapefruit, fairly bitter linger, cleans off palate
Overall - Good flavoured pale ale, great condition here.

Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pourís medium gold with a small head. The nose is light apricot, some lemon peel, a bit of grapefruit and coniferous tree. The taste is more light, summery citrus fruits. Earthy, grass hops. A bit of brash shrubbery. Medium bitter hoppy finish. Smooth, quite flavorful. Overall, a pretty decent golden! Nice work. One of the better festival beers Iíve had so far.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Cask at Shakespeare Head Spoons. Very drinkable golden ale. Good mouthfeel good condition good hops. Just a little watery on the finish. Could be bitterer. Re rate yes mouthfeel still best thing about it. Bit perfumed just needs a bitterer finish. i want to like it more than i do due to the mouthfeel and condition
