bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear medium amber, sudsy white head, streaks of lace. Looks appealing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is light malt with biscuit and grass that turns to citrus hop on the swallow, with hops prevalent through a medium finish. There should be more beers like this: enough flavor to be enjoyable, not enough alcohol to get loaded on a long night. It does what it means to do, is balanced, and is a pleasure to drink.

Aroma is citrus, fruit and noticeable hop resin. The flavor is fruit, malts/biscuit malts, mild hop resin, citrus and a tart/smooth/lightly bitter finish. I’ve never really had a really good, hoppy UK golden ale, either they’ve been old or not that good to begin with; this was great, makes me wish there were more easily available in the US.

(Bottle) Very pale yellow beer with a decent frothy head. Light, fruity aroma. Flavour is light and fruity as well with a bit of sharp hop thrown in as well. Slightly bitter finish but it’s somewhat short-lived.

Patrickctenchi (5002) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Honey gold with a soapy, thin white head. Very light fruit, grain aroma. Taste is the same, creamy with a mild bitter. Extremely light, but very nice.

mighty_meadow (304) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Pours amber bit like a decent lager. Aroma of orange, marmalade, hay, light spice. Taste is well balanced with a slight tart, spiced orange finish due to the citrus. Easy to drink with gentle carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Orange becomes more prevelant as you get down the glass. A real bargain at only £1 for a 500ml bottle in Morrisons at the moment.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pale malts with a decent amount of bitter hops. Flavor about the same. Average to light texture. Not bad for the style and alcohol content.

imdownthepub (11496) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons, Banbury. Gold with white head. Malty, light beer, quite fruity, lemony in character, almost lager like, but reasonably sharp and fresh. Not bad really.
