2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couple of pints or so from a Polly Pin at a party on 7th June 2014, some 6 miles from the brewery. Light golden with a wisp and collar. Pleasant enough blend, with the malts just about winning in both the aroma and taste stakes. Mildly bitter finish, ideal session garden ale on a warm Norfolk day.

Cask conditioned handpump Vine Norwich 21/08/12. A golden coloured beer with barely any head. A sweetish golden ale with some lemony hops. Malts are a bit too sweet. Drinkable enough but needs more citricity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this golden ale in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Excellent appearance with crystal clear orange amber colouration and a thick creamy white head. Floral hops evident in the short aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malts give succulent lychee fruit notes with a delicate hint of elderflowers. Dry hop resins come through in the well balanced aftertaste and this continues through into the finish. An ok summer session ale that is both light and refreshing. Well recommended.
