An extremely clean-drinking pale golden ale with a strong floral aroma and elderflower notes from the Cascade hops. This beer is full-bodied and full-flavoured yet gentle enough to make it a favourite session beer.

Belgo (154) - Køge, - OCT 21, 2010
Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Nice golden with an off white head, that, true to it being cask, disappears quickly. For a British beer this has a very distinctive hoppy aroma: loads of classic British hops makes one feel as if taking a stroll in a hop garden in Southern England. On the palate the beer is lively (impeccably handled by the staff at The Harp), bursting with hops and a biscuity malty background. Super beer and one, that I’d love to have as my session beer for a night at the pub.

Floral y cítricos. Ligera en boca y de trago largo con un final de amargor moderado.

On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - nice crisp thirst quencher. Lots of citrus, not to sharp. Good session with it.

(2017 London) 1/2 Pint Cask @ Harp. Sampled cask @ Waterloo Tap. Review for the first one, second one was about the same. Totally clear amber golden, solid white head. Nose is buttery grainy with some weeds. Taste is grainy, buttery vaguely milky, bitter green, flowers, not much in the way of hops,… Milky & grainy cask body and taste, manageable but I expected so much more given the score on here & I definitely expected more hops.

SinH4 (6552) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017
Cark. Golden color with white head. Aroma is grainy, earthy. Taste is grainy, earthy, bready. Soft oily cask mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Good cask ale, but where's the head of the hops?

Yellow colour with lasting head. Aroma and flavour have some sweet malt sugars. Flavour has a lasting floral dry finish.

zacgillbanks (5651) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle from Mam and Dad’s Holiday, Southern England. Pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a citrus and floral fruity flavour followed by earthy notes, biscuit and grapefruit on the finish. Very good for the low ABV.

axl (1108) - Lund, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2017
Cask @ Oliver Twist. Clear golden with one finger white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, orange, hay and black tea. Taste is nicely dry with light but growing bitterness with orange peel, black tea, hay, light citrus and dry malts. Medium, dry mouthfeel, still and growing bitter aftertaste.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Cask at Greyhound, Hartshill. Pours golden. Full bodied citrus led session ale. Decent.

thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2017
Pint on cask. An excellent golden ale. It lives up to its name, with a good amount of hop flavor at the end, but it’s also balanced and never overpowering. Great flavors of grapefruit and flowers that really come out at cellar temp.
