On cask at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon and general maltiness. Taste - lemon again. Something green and plant. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a decent finish. Overall - a bit challenging for a golden ale.

JorgeLee (2013) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Cask, The Fox E8. Light but slightly rich gold colour, white foam. Lovely drinkable pale golden colour. Smooth grainy base, hints of fruity esters, lovely bitter hop flavour with sherbety fruit and a slight spiciness. Medium finish. Very smashable.

D Cask at the Sussex Ox. Im not sure the beer was looked after correctly as it smelt horrid. The beer really stuck to the mouth with an intense bitterness. The after taste was unpleasant and the whole beer was of a bitter beer flavoured water. Disappointing but may be worth another try somewhere else.

Cask @ Exmouth Arms, Clerkenwell, medium sample. Slight hazy yellow color, short frothy head. Aroma is funky grainy wheat, urinal cake, lemon. Bit nasty bitterness in taste, lemon, funky. Too weird for me, couldnt finish the pint.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Lemongrass, ginger and citrus fruit morph into grass and resinous bitterness in this silky, quenching Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam laces atop the misty pale yellow.
-The mouthfeel is well endowed for a 3.5% brew.
-This is a bit like Hopheads little cousin.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Malts offer a few crackers too.

On cask at The Hobgoblin, Brighton.

A bit hazy yellow color, small white head, lace. Aroma has diacetyl, riped fruits and orange. Light to medium-bodied. Riped fruits and citrus. Very watery.
