Towey1989 (1899) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Cask at The Wilkes Head, Leek. A golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, apple, pear and big floral hops. Taste of apple, pear, grapefruit, lemon peel, grassy, floral hops and resin. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long floral hop bitterness in the finish. A really good golden ale, full of floral and citrus hops.

Cask conditioned at The Wilkes Head, Leek, Staffs. Gold with white head. A big and fruity golden ale, tangy grapefruit juice, pithy, drying. There is a lasting hoppiness, light greengage hints. Really very decent.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Hand pulled at King William IV, Nottingham. Gold, with fabulous lacing. Smells OK. Flavour is really good. Big, booming UK style hoppiness: some floral, some medicine, some cat piss. A great Golden ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
On cask at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. The aroma is quite floral with grass, caramel and green tea notes. Just a little sweet with similar floral flavours of grass, green tea and caramel. Nice lingering bitterness with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Tasty.

Cask conditioned Handpump Brunswick Derby. A light golden beer with a white head and lacing. Good strong citrussy hops in the aroma. Sharp bitterness in the mouth. A little acidity and becomes a bit harsh but otherwise OK.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2010
Cask at Marble Arch Inn, Manchester. A hazy light golden beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is very perfumy - from the hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, flowers, and hops, leading to a dry, bitter, fruity, and hoppy finish.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Flowerpot ,Derby 30-01-10 in company of Loz, Simon (Haddonsman) my dad and Pauline Pours clear as a bell golden with a slim white head. Touch of fruitiness on the nose, lightly bitter on the nose but then there is a nice tingle from the hops and a light burn on the tongue, nice furry bitterness. Really lovely stuff, good citrus flavour’s coming through, lemon peel, clingy, stringy bitterness continuing, great beer but alongside Marble Dobber its in some very special company.
