Bottled. Pours a clear golden / light amber colour, with a reasonably almost white head. A clean, fresh citrus aroma with some pine. A sweet start in the mouth with the citrus and pine noticeable here too. A dry, hoppy finish.

Bottle from lincoln market stall. Golden brown ale with a good glossy white head. Aroma of punchy malts and grassy fruits, nice hit of hops at the end. Taste is crisp refreshing and biting, lovely bitter finish. Medium carb and body. Lovely ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden amber coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light grassy hop aroma, hints of spice and a background biscuity malt. Dry mouthfeel. A zesty bitter hop flavour, pithy citrus fruit, hints of grapefruit and lemon, plus a grassiness that brings forward a spiciness that in turn brings a biscuity malt flavour that tempers the hoppiness. The hoppiness leads a long and lingering finish.

Pleasantly surprised. For a Golden ale it’s punchy enough to be memorable, with a zesty, almost saazy nose followed-up by a very bitter, dry and citrussy lingering finish. Very pale, but still enough generic malt sweetness to keep things in balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Coach House, a pub in Keal Coates, Lincolnshire: on 9 Mar 2013.
Pale amber body with a white head of tight foam on top. Clear and healthy looking.
The nose was a blend of both roasted malts and floral hops with a suggestion of honey sweetness.
The taste was also a pleasant mixture of flavours: very simular to the aromas. The beer seemed to get drier the more I had (only had a pint though): pleased the brewery is up and running, as I thought it had folded.
