Cask conditioned at Greyfriarís, Reading, Berkshire. Clouded gold with white head. Well there is certainly a sweet orange character to this, marmalde jammy hints, a little sticky. Reasonable depth of flavour, some yeasty spiciness. Itís okay.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Greyfriar, Reading. Hazy orange-amber with a small white head. A light orangey flavour with sweet malts, caramel and a little toast. Very smooth but lacks oomph. Itís like sweet industrial marmalade on toast- I would prefer a darker, more bitter home-made marmalade on my toast please.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Leicester Square JDW, amber with a light head and a vegetal-hoppy and orange nose. Bitter and lightly fruity, with an almost acrid edge and a hint of candy sugar. Pleasant but Iím not convinced by the Xmas angle.

Aroma: fruits, caramel malts. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: quickly turning lightly butter and quite dry in the finish. Overall: bit of a funny palate, but OK Golden Ale. Pint at Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf.

Short review, social. Pint at the Black Dog. Golden orange, still, small white head. Body is medium to light, smooth. Taste is medicinal, dry astringent spice, light tangy malt, soft bitterness. I found this one a bit hard going, and didnít get much of the expected citrus. Maybe condition isnít great?
