An exceptionally pale beer, brewed using "green" hops - harvested hops which have not been dried in a kiln. These hops were pitched to the copper within an hour of picking. The two hop varieties used for this beer were Mathon Golding from Lulsley Court and First Gold from Tedney. Both farms are within half a mile of the brewery.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium to bigger sized airy white foam head on top of a cloudy yellow orange colored beer. Aromas of honey, marzipan, tangerine, grains, leaves, porridge, some floral tones and a hint of sewer. Flavours of herbs, honey, hay, light citrus/lemon ish tones, some bitters, meal/porridge, some yeast, tangerine/orange and some dryness. Aftertaste is a dry mix of herbs, bitters, some light fruity tones and a weet malty edge. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Decent beer. Guess this would be lovely fresh from the tap!

Bottle from Hay Wines, Ledbury, Herefordshire. Hazy, pale gold. White, lasting head. Aroma of pale malt. There’s some weird, sulphurous, fusty, damp straw too! Taste is lightly, spicy dry. Some bitterness. Short, dry finish.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured by gravity @ NERAX North cask festival. 11/16/2013 Haverhill, MA. Clear gold with lots of soapy head. Nose is corn and weak grassy hops. Ok, I’m confused here…. Where are the Green hops located?? The flavor is all grain, generic pale malt and yeast. Needless to say I was expecting much more. But it is just a Golden Ale I got worked up form the description and got nothing.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Gold/amber, very slightly cloudy, no head; low carbonation; earthy hop aroma; tastes malty, juicy - lemons and particularly limes, with bitterness and a good, lasting grassy hop finish; an ok, straightforward hoppy bitter.

BlackHaddock (4985) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
July 2010, I wrote this: This is the first of four different bottles (all 500ml) I bought from this brewery while in the lovely city of Worcester a couple of weekends ago. The beer should have been opened before the end of March, but I drank it in the first week of July. The beer is bottle conditioned: Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint glass. The beer was cloudy and a pale yellow in colour, really dull yellow to be honest. A snow white head sat on top. The aroma given off was mostly of hops, a bitterness and suggestions of sourness (Belgian style) mixed together to give an interesting and different smell to most UK beers. The taste was fairly green (meaning young and not ready), but the name suggests it would taste that way. I found it fresh, crisp and obviously hoppy, most enjoyable. It was a little lively, but not overly fizzy, just a bit over excited to get out the bottle.
