Light-medium sweet flavor with low bitterness, some ripe, lightly dried citrus fruits, a bit of hay, grains. Light bodied with ine to average carbonation. Some further grainy pale malts to finish, biscuits, rindy lemon. Perhaps not super fresh but still OK.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
500ml bottle, drunk on 1 January 2007. Pale gold colour with a diminishing white head. A little lemony citrus, backed up by light biscuity malt. Restrained citrus again in the flavour. Slightly soft mouthfeel. I generally think these golden ales don’t bottle too well. This does better than most but still lacks the vibrant, fresh hop character found in similar Dark Star cask ales. A respectable, easy-drinking number but a bit short of pizzazz.
