madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer, little white suddy head. Quite remarkable nose - as soon as the beer started to pour an aroma of fresh raspberries cut through all the stale beer, sweat and burger smells of the festival and pervaded everywhere - really top notch! Light dry palate. Fresh tart raspberry but a light presence of it - nothing like as intense as the nose. The raspberry turns sweeter before a very dry finish and a slightly hop bitter aftertaste.

cgarvieuk (14691) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
bottle at home ... lovely crisp golden yellow ... big bubbly white head ... lots of raspberry from even a distance ... soft fruit hop ... soft raspberry light bitterness... aroma and looks tops the beer its self, but the beer is decent if a little bitter and ligth metalicness

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2010. Lovely aroma of fresh raspberry doesn’t continue into the flavour where the fruit and the golden ale do battle for sweetness and dryness at the same time.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear, very pale yellow with a fine, bubbly head. Quite a nice raspberry character in the aroma, thank you very much. Light to medium sweet flavor with fairly true raspberry notes and light doughy malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lots more raspberry to finish, fairly juicy, with light hay bitterness. Nice raspberry integration on this one.

imdownthepub (10468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with slight white head. The only good thing about this was the aroma which was raspberry through and through. The flavour was cheap and perfumed, Angel Delight type flavour, edging towards undrinkable.
