Cask; Status uncertain.
A delightful, pale refreshing ale brewed using the finest Maris Otter Pale malt complemented by American Cluster hops which give a long dry finish.

First tasted this in the Three Judges, Glasgow in September 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Elderflowers give a fragrant note to the short aroma. Thin refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with juicy clemantine fruit and elderflower cordial. Strong hop prickle detected in the dusty, floral, resiny aftertaste. Finish is sweet with warming golden syrup flavours rolling in the mouth. An excellent session Golden Ale and it reminded me of Badger Golden Best in taste. Well recommended.

Cask @ Volunteer Arms, GBBF 2008. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Sweetish fruity flavor with some hints of hops and a slightly thin mouthfeel. Has a sweetish fruity finish with some hoppy hints.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2009
Cask handpump at The Green Dragon, Cambridge. Gold with a foamy head. Citrus, hoppy scent. A bit thin and slightly carbonated. Some stickiness from sugars in the mouthfeel, presumably being the sweet lips. A bitter, dry end makes it well balanced. In the mouth: hops, biscuit malts and a hint of clementines, before a slightly roasted end.

George V, Brompton Valentine’s Day, and we end up in the pub watching the rugby. Nice. This is a pale beer. Slightly sweet. Slight white lily quality. It’s OK.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2008
Cask conditioned @ Queens Hotel, Gosport. Citrussy fruity hops are main feature of the aroma but dont completely overwhelm the malt flavours. Slightly sweet with a light hoppy finish.
