500ml bottle. Poured clear golden colour, attractive appearance. Small white head. Aroma is floral with lots of caramel notes. Taste is initially citrusy, leaving the palate with a bitter and malty finish. Crisp, sweet and refreshing. Very nice beer. Can see why this is an award winner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt and weak hops. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bitter liqourice palate and a long rather unpleasant bitter finish. Can’t say I really enjoyed this too much. The aftertaste wasn’t good. It’s refreshing but the hops don’t really work for me. I need my pale ales to be a little more "pale"!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle purchased from The Tiddly Pomme, Faversham. A bit light, but pleasant aroma of citric hops. Nice and refreshing flavor of pale malt, citric fruit and some bitterness. Medium to light body – feels right and some bitterness in aftertaste. Decent and refreshing thirst quencher. Probably closer to an American Pale Ale than Bitter or IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 cask @ Dickens fest Rochester. Not a bad hoppy Biiter @ all. Although this was golden ,it was not a golden ale , this is an oxymoron .A nice fruity hop texture ,dry’ish and sweet .

Gravity at Battersea Beer Fest 2013. Bright golden yellow colour. Pleasantly fruity juicy hop character with a nice gently bitter finish. Lingering finish. A very enjoyable beer, you could drink a lot of this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Happy Man, Englefield Green - 17/08/12.
Clear golden with a minimal white head.
Hops, citrus and grass on the nose.
Sweet malt, grass, earhty hop tones in the taste, quite farmy.
Lightish body, fairly wet, but worked well for this beer resulting in a refreshing crisp finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask (Bell & Crown, Canterbury)
Slight tea aroma, later a bit acetic. Looks abit thin. Watery palate, slightly sulfery taste, otherwise a dull bitter. Slight acetic in taste too. A touch of citrus can’t overcome the acetic component. OK milky grains, but minerally. Clearly not at its best.
