Our most popular beer, a sessionable golden ale hopped with First Gold. Its a thirst-quenching beer with a pronounced and pleasant hop aroma.
Grapefruit citrus is balanced with malt sweetness. Nice floral notes on the aroma.

BlackHaddock (6908) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2016
500ml bottle conditioned: BBD Jul 2017. The first beer of a Virtual Bar session on 28th Oct 2016. The bottle had been in my chilling fridge for two days, but it still gushed out on opening. The Old Speckled Hen vase shaped pint glass couldnt cope but in the end I had a clear, rich golden bodied beer with a Mr Softy like towering white head on top. Malty front with a semi-bitter hoppy, dry finish. Mild citrus notes throughout, but nothing overpowering or heavy. Beer grew on me, bit homebrew initially in my thoughts, but once into it my view changed. Peppery undertones somewhere in the flavour: beer ends up decent.

Golden colour with a thin white head. Faint citrus aroma with sweet malt taste leading to light happy flavour with some grassy and citrus flavour. Not lingering. Pleasant but not mind blowing

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle from Cellar Door, Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield. Pours copper, slightly hazy with a single finger white head. Aroma of malts, citrus...Taste of initial malts, caramel, toffee, some dark fruitiness, then some blood orange and a touch of citrus with some flowery notes too. Simple Bitter, I can see why it sells, but its not the best in the world.

ianwelby (1278) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Very slightly hazy golden beer with a thick, bubbly white head. Bitter smell, very light citrus in there. Flavour is, thankfully, more distinct than the smell. Quite a zesty hit initially, very grapefruity, though there isnt much sweetness and what there is soon dries out leaving quite a flowery, bitter aftertaste. Its a bit like a drier citra.

Garrold (4850) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle. Dram Shop, Sheffield. Clear gold. Big, bubbly, frothy, lasting, white head. Lots of carbonation keeping it going. Very crisp, citrus notes. Some grassy hop. Clean malt backbone. Taste is light dry, and crisp, citric bitter. Cleansing, fresh palate. Finishes gentle, but lingering bitter. Another bottle from this brewer thats in fantastic nick. Very sessionable. Good one.

Bottle. Bronze with a medium body.Lovely citrus and hop flavours merge together. Well bottled and definitely a good one-yet again from this excellent brewery.
