Cask. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is mild nectar, some wood, herbs, a bit sweet and bready malts as well as some slight berries. Flavour is wooden, herbal, mild nectary and honey like sweetness along with a mild floral bitterness to it.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Pint @ The Joiners Arms in Bishopston (Wales). It pours a hazy deep golden liquid with a small-medium consistent white foam; perfect lacing. The aroma is light, with fresh grassy hops and a distant malty touch. It tastes citric (lemon, grapefruit), somewhat malty, with a good deal of bitterness and a little sweetness. Carbonation is soft, ending bitter, malty and very dry. Refreshing and with a very natural taste. A good one to try if you’re around Gower!

A Sim rate (cask at the Market no-Porter): Hoppy, well-balanced fresh aroma with a slight bitterness. It’s so bitter in the flavour, but in that nice fresh, hoppy way. A slight alcohol sting makes it rather enjoyable. Lemon, grapefruit and actually quite nice.

<i>Joiners Arms, Bishopston</i> Golden and reasonably pleasant enough blonde ale with a citric hop awareness in the finish. Good enough, and fresh.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Pint in the Joiners Arms, Bishopston. Not much of an aroma. Murky yellow in colour with a white head. Citrus fruit with a hoppy feel. Bitter finish yet quite smooth to drink. Nice beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Luton BF. A dark gold coloured beer . The aroma is fairly hoippy but doesn’t smell too fresh. The taste has some bitterness and some citric character, but again doesn’t seem as fresh as desired. Tastes like it could be quite sharp.

pivnizub (9895) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2006
Cask (Joiners Arms, Bishopston): deep golden, small, stable creamy lacing head; mild, but distinctive bitter-hoppy nose with traces of yeast; distinctive dry bitter flavour, light bodied; short fruity and bitter finish. Pleasant and tasty............

One of three Swansea beers I sampled at the brewpub. Pale gold colour. Served through a tight sparkler, so the aroma was pretty much extinguished. Flavour is citric, very dry and quite bitter, with some fruit. Refreshing, slightly astringent finish. Cask (handpump), Joiners Arms, Bishopston, Wales.

On cask at the Worcester Beer festival. This was a nice balance between malt and hops and I also detected a slight smokey taste to the beer aswell. Which I liked.
