A crisp and hoppy session bitter. Amber malt provides a pleasant biscuity edge to this pale golden-coloured ale. A blend of English and American hops add a wonderfully floral and citrus-like, long dry finish. Silver Medal in the Bitters category at the Great British Beer Silver award in the Bitter category at Great British Beer Festival 2007.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Handpulled cask at JDW Stanmore. What a tasty brew for such a low gravity. Complex citric bitter hop character but well balanced. Very impressed.

[Cask, gravity dispense, at Heathrow Beer Festival 2008.] Pale gold with a ring of white head; pine resin and citrus aromas; sharp citrus taste with a hint of lime; chewy biscuity malts; grapefruit finish. Excellent.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2010
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford on 27th November 2009, on the pub’s first visit since reopening after a short closure. Gold with a lasting white head. Refreshing hoppy aromas - grapefruit and grassiness. A pleasant bitter hoppy kick followed by a finish that becomes increasingly bitter. Flavour experience lasting to the bottom of the pint glass. Very flavoursome for its 3.7% ABV.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2009
Cask at BLES Bierhappening 2008, Zottegem, Belgium
Clear, blond body. Off-white, fizzy head. Looks like low carbonated beer. Nice aroma of strong hops and fruit. Moderately bitter initial flavour. Dry, heavily bitter finish of cascade. Good, steady beer.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009
Cask. At The Old Fountain. Clear light amber pour with a smallish off-white head. Simple yet deeply appealing aroma - fresh grassy/floral bitterness and very light, not too sweet golden ale maltiness. The taste delivered - refreshing, pungently bitter, but restrained and no alcohol character at all - a beer to drink multiple pints of on a warm day and people watch. Light, crisp, dry body, long floral finish, no aftertaste. A remarkably well-crafted beer, thanks for the "steer" Ang!

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 A Mes rate: Cask at Baker St. ’Sporks.
Clean gold with a thin and bubbly white head. Citric hop aroma with a very slight sweetness. Straight forward hoppy stuff in the mouth with a slight chalkiness and a lovely bitter and dusty finish. Not bad.

Re-rate, cask at the Ship in Wandsworth. Excellent stuff. Clean gold with a good white head that lasts all the way down. Delicate grassy hops and good earthy malt. Really well balanced. Effortlessly drinkable. Good bitter finish that lasts well. Straight forward but really well made. Nice one Tom.

BeerViking (4205) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Amber-gold with a fine clingy white head, the aroma is pine, citrus and sweet malt. On the palate it is initially sweet with floral hops, then an astringent bitterness cuts through to give a crispness that balances the malt and results in a long dry-bitter finish.

RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is very bitter and dry, and the flavour has heavy duty bitterness and a long dry hopped finish. Overall a nice very bitter golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChrisisGod (8) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2005 does not count
After a few teething difficulties due to the brewery being brand new, and the recipe not quite fitting the equipment, Steve Brown and his team have now got a really nice, easy drinking summer beer in the Crane Sundancer. Hoppy, orange citrus fruits come through when served at around 15 degrees, and a slight fruity nutiness also when served at 7 degrees. Refreshing with a dry finish. Very enjoyable.
