Bottle. Smells of soapy pepper. Rich gold colour. Soft mouth feel. Lager-ale-tastic, umm, well something like that. Peppery hop, lacking in full bodied flavour.

goozen (3562) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle 0,5ltr: Golden clear brew with nicely grassy bitter taste with an slightly citrus taste. Yorkshire meets the Czech Republic and Germany and may become great friends.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Cask in the Thomas Sheraton, Stockton. A blonde ale with a white head. Nothing too much to report really. Some caramel and hay notes, but a little short of flavour, although it is pleasantly creamy in the mouth, refreshing and goes down easy.

Fra cask på Ye Olde Salutation Inn, Nottingham 26 Jan 14. Gylden. Lavt filmskum. Aroma av honning. Smaken vassen. Hint av tørr frukt. Litt syrlig. Blir tørr etter hvert.

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Booths. Pours a clear pale gold, nice bubbly white head. Light aromas of straw and herbal hops. Taste is light sweet, very light bitter at the start, but this builds as you get down the glad. Easy drinking and refreshing, but with a slight astringent finish.

Cask at the Metropolitan (Wetherspoons), Baker Street, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white fluffy head on top. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, malty. A refreshing and highly drinkable golden ale.

Cask a Willow Walk 'spoons, Victoria. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma has a hint of orange and caramel. Medium body, mild carbonation. There's lemon and a hint of marmalade alongside a solid maltiness. Tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Watford jdw. Pale golden coloured pour with a lasting white head and decent lace. Aroma is iron, wet grassy hop and some caramel. Flavour is pale English malt with some caramel. Fruity yeast esters with hints of belgian blonde. Finish is sweet sweet honey and mineral. Medium light palate and average carbonation light slick. Not sure I should have had a pint of this.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint in my local Wetherspoons on 13th Jan 2014. As the name suggests, this is a blonde coloured beer: the head being white, full and staying. Slight citrus aroma, very little malt in the nose, all hop. The taste was also hop leading with the malts well below the surface: the beer was refreshing, crisp and very easy to drink. One of the better citrus flavoured light beers currently about in the UK.
