Bottle from Belhaven Fruit Farm. Not much aroma, but some floral and malt notes, taste very similar, not a lot going on. Touch of citrus. Finishes medium length. Not a bad session beer.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Leeds 15/04/13. A golden beer with a tight white head and lace. A pleasant citrussy hoppy aroma. Hops good in the mouth too. Lemony. A biscuity dryness stops it developing too much. Still very competent.

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. This had quite a sweaty character to it, scented and quite thin. Some spruce like notes. Not to my taste.

Leighton (9851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Cask at Woodin’s Shades, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a small, foamy white head. Dirty straw in the nose, some dry, crunchy white bread. Light sweet flavor with mellow straw bitterness, hints of dirt and grass, light lemon rind. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Faint resinous grass, straww and citrus fruit rind to finish, some dirt, light plastic, faint lemon tanginess. Simple little beer.

jamestulloch (1051) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Aroma: Grain, red apple and shortbread notes.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a medium off-white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation and lacing.

Taste: Pear, citrus and caramel. Grainy and earthy/grassy flavours. Light bitterness.

Palate: Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Simple, subtle flavours, Personally, it tastes a little too grainy for my liking, but this is a perfectly sessionable golden ale.
