dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden with a slight haze. White froth. Nose of deep citrus. Lemon and lime. Dry with a bitter hoppiness in the mouth. Not really pulling out much flavour besides a little lemon and malt. Finish is super dry, like a wine with some heavy bitter notes. Nothing unpleasant. Nothing mindblowing.

Beersiveknown (2781) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 29, 2011
Now bottled as "Festival Gold".A deep gold rather than the pale I had expected. A lot of malt character with tangerine on the nose and a residual digestive biscuit and slight Burtonisation in the after taste. Sweetness endures in the finish.
