Niall73 (1834) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a hazy yellow gold with little head. Nice funky hoppy, light veg aroma. Light to medium body, very little carbonation. Quite cakey, with candy, light caramel, grass, some orange. OK, but lifeless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Martin243 (785) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Pint at the Port Street Beer House. Slightly hazy golden body, with a tight white head. Aroma of citrus, set honey and toast. Grapefruit and tropical fruit flavours. Quite a juicy mouth feel. Sharp and refreshing finish. Very good beer, that I’m more than happy to recommend, but Thornbridge set the bar high, so not one of their most exceptional productions. Still, who’s complaining?

Erasmus_ro (1399) - Alabama, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Cask @ Black Door, Helsinki, 12/03/14. Pours golden yellow with not much of a head. Fairly citrusy affair, some strawy maltiness there as well. More of a golden ale than an APA. Not too nice. A bit too full and slick without the carbonation.

mjs (4640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2014
(Cask at Kitty’s, 20140311) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was small, dense and it lasted long. Aroma had grass, straw and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were grass, straw, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A well done hoppy Golden Ale.
