500ml bottle from Real Ale Warehouse. Listed as 5%. Pours clear gold, thick long-lasting white head. Aromas of orange and light spice. Taste brings more of the promised marmalade. The only flaw is that it’s slightly over-carbonated. Otherwise very nice.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow. Golden in colour, with a decent, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Decent, biscuity malts, some marmalade sweetness, orange blossom and a solid, bitter finish. A good single hop beer.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013
Cask at the Market Porter - London. Pours clear gold with a frothy, pure white head. Doughy malts in the nose, some lemon merengue. Light to medium sweet flavor with white bread, light straw, hints of lemon rind. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Some faint sticky citrus in the finish, sweet doughy white bread, light hay bitterness. Tasty golden ale.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle from Tomlinson’s beer shop, Inverness. It pours cloudy golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is creamy, orange, tangerine and light pepper. The taste is zesty citrus, orange marmalade, tangerine, spice/pepper and juicy fruits, with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth, juicy and pretty damn tasty.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2012
[cask at Fountain Bar, Edinburgh] Pours clear gold, large white head. Bitter orange on the aroma, very much an orange citrus element to the flavour, with a biscuity sweetness in there. The finish is bitter orange rind – it gets progressively oily on the palate, but is very nice – having seen the tasting note relating to marmalade, it’s really got a lot on the flavour [31072012]

Rating #600
Golden amber, frothy white head, some lacing. Aroma of fruity malts, hint of hops. Taste of pale malts, light fruity malts, fairly bitter bit zesty hops, quite refreshing, simple flavours.
Palate - Quite bitter, thin body. Lingering finish
Overall - OK - run of the mill tbh

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle. Golden with white head. Pleasant aroma, some passion fruit, orange and a peppery spiciness. Taste is slightly less fruity, peppery, spicy and a nice earthiness. I was surprised at how nice this was, they’ve deffonitely done this hop justice
