Cask; Regular.
Formerly Matthews Brassknocker

A Golden-Ale with a huge citrus bouquet full of fresh lemons and spicy orange zest. The mouth is filled with vanilla malt and left with a long and satisfying bitter finish. An easy-drinking “session beer” with a character that you will find refreshing at any time of year.

Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2017
Cask ale, half pint shared with Finn at the Green Man. Next to clear golden body, dissipating white head leaving dotted spots on the glass. Moderate dough and ripe fruity nose. Subdued taste profile of ripe lemon, bread and herbal hops towards the ending. Easy going. (Bristol 30.04.2017).

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Aroma: light citrus, grain malts. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: remains lightly bitter, acidic, citrus, grain malts. Overall: not the greatest Golden Ale, lacks complexity and is bland in palate. Pint at The Victoria, Bristol.

ManVsBeer (10258) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask @ Jacob’s Beer House, Bradford. Golden with a thin head. Hopped, some malt, but its fruitiness is just about dominant. Citrus nose and very crisp.

BlackHaddock (7232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Cask half-pint in St Aldates Tavern, Oxford on 18th Oct 2014 after an afternoon session across the road at the CAMRA Oxford beer festival. Pale yellow to golden body, with a weak white head. Malty yet citrus feel to the nose, the taste also a citrus and light malt blend. Not unpleasant but not a lot of flavour or things happening to excite the senses.

Slugtly hazy blonde, white lacing wet grain nose. Fairly grainy, biscuit malt.dry herbal notes and some buttery diacetyl in finish.

3.2
jamesie1857 (2110) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
On cask at Chesterfield Alehouse - Pale yellow body, thin white head. Zesty citrus in the nose, lemons, limes, and slightly bitter in the taste. Other than that it doesn’t shine, and fades into a rather boring pale by the end.
