Scopey (14523) - Croydon, Greater London, - MAR 3, 2011
Cask at the Green Dragon, Croydon. It pours hay yellow with low carbonation and a thin white head. The nose is citrus fruits, hay, grass and farmyard. The taste is bread, earthy, grass and citrus towards the finish (lemon, lime and orange). Itís light, crisp, smooth, uncomplicated and makes for easy drinking.

Pint on cask. An excellent golden ale. It lives up to its name, with a good amount of hop flavor at the end, but itís also balanced and never overpowering. Great flavors of grapefruit and flowers that really come out at cellar temp.

beer_head (45) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Pours golden amber with thin frothy lasting head. Decent aroma of hops, grapefruit and some hints of malt. Initial taste of grapefruit and a slight hint of grass leading to a slightly bitter, but somewhat refreshing aftertaste. Light carbonation. Not at all bad and easy drinking. Plenty of flavour for 3.8 ABV.

Davros IX (334) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A nice easy drinking light bitter. Light hops and malt and very thirst quenching. I served it on the cool side and that was perfect. It is one of my favourite summer beers.

Cask at Harp in London. Beautiful clear bright pale golden with a lazy one-finger white head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, elderflower, citrus. Flavor is nice, dry, crisp, pale malt with a good hop punch. Light on the feel and drinkable with a nice soft carbonation. Really awesome for the blond ale style.

avantbland (15) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
One of my favourite easy-to-drink golden ales, and as itís 3.8% you can easily drink it all night. Not a particularly intense flavour, but a delicious one... although nowhere near as hoppy as the name implies.

3.9

Cask at the crown Eastbourne. A really solid golden ale and Iím really pleasantly surprised at the abv. Incredibly drinkabls, light, with flavour. Yum.
