Cask. Spot on golden colour with a creamy white head which lasts and lasts. Malts and lemon on the nose. Heavy reedy lemongrass in the mouth, some coriander. Quite dry and quenching finish.

Cask at Briar Rose, Birmingham
Golden color, creamy head. Light and fresh aroma, a bit fruity. Mild malt flavor, with a light toffee and biscuits touch; it has a correct bitterness with a delicate citrusy touch, lemon and bergamot; the final is balanced, with a light pungent trait.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Penderel’s Oak, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam head. Lovely orange citrus nose with soft, doughy biscuits. Medium sweet flavor with pale and doughy malts, and really nice, fresh orange and other citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate bitterness in the finish, with faintly dry straw, white sugar, biscuity malts, and sweet, juicy citrus. Excellent golden ale. Sometimes Spoonies gets it right.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask - Wetherspoons, Victoria station, London. Poured with a clear golden amber body beneath a loose & bubbly, fading white head. Pretty standard golden ale characteristics all told. Some fruity hoppiness, pale malt sweetness & a grassy bitterness at the back. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel with a light spritz & finished with a lingering, medium intensity bitterness. Solid but standard.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Cask conditioned handpump Post & Telegraph Brighton 21/05/12. A golden beer with a white head. Has the house yeasty character. A little citrus and some mineral notes. None of the promised lemongrass for me. Quaffable but could be better. Score 3.1
