Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - DEC 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, pine and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

rodsquad (117) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle from Oddbins Aberdeen central. Pours clear orangey gold with a fluffy white head. Gentle aromas of pine resin and citrus oils. Taste follows suit with orange peel hops and pine freshness that builds a fine level of bitterness over the pale gentle malt. A soft mouthfeel with gentle to moderate carbonation adding a little sharpness. Nothing bold but a fantastically refreshing light and soft ale.

Cokemonkey11 (713) - - JUN 19, 2016
Pint, keg. Pours pale amber with no head. Scent is late hops of fruit. Taste is surprising dense IPA flavors of late hops, as well as cereals. This might actually be my preference over long white cloud. Finish is clean. Really good.

StuartC (74) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Rich lemon-gold with a few bubbles & lasting solid white head. Aromas of hay, lemony-hops, light bitterness, very gentle malt undertones. Medium body, soft spritz, gently acidic finish, dry. Citrus leads the palate (though with low intensity), gentle nectarine & honey follow. A very well balanced session ale with light hop and light malt character, light flavours also. "Gentle" is the word!

Iznogud (3298) - CROATIA - MAR 13, 2016
Cask at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Pours orange with lasting medium off-white head. Fruity citrus aroma, some caramel in flavor. Medium bitterness. Actually pretty good for golden ale.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Cask at The Bishop Langley, Durham. Golden with only the thinnest, off-white head as it was poured inexpertly by a barman on his first ever shift. Ever without a head the aroma was muted, although some sweet floral and tropical fruit notes are there if you look hard enough. The taste is altogether rather different, dry verging on sour with some grainy, leafy, wooden character. Its a reasonable beer with some sharp, interesting flavours but it lacks drinkability and is marked down as such.
