Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy lightish amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, possibly elderflower, with some estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of needles and fruit and touches of malt and yeast. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Very nice and refreshing on a hot summer’s day.

alexsdad06 (11238) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Draft to taster from notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have floral hops, hay, grainy malts, mild bitterness to the finish. Fairly bland.

Scottishchris (754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Fyne. Straw gold, white frothy lasting head. Biscuity lemon with malt. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Citrus and lemon. Crisp light bitter finish. Good.

zimbo (983) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle fresh from, the brewery. Crisp golden colour with a brilliant white heap. A bit robust and husky at first before settling down to a pleasurable refreshing palate cleaner. Not overly complex but certainly quenching.

Bottle at home, courtesy of Kirsty. Very clear and deep golden colour. Some gas, appropriately?

Cask. Southampton Arms. Fresh on otb 10th April 2015. Golden colour. White lacing. Top biscuity malt. Really gentle malt. Succulent. Dry and grapefruit juice. Citrus. Really drinkable. Crisp and fruity finish. Great golden ale! Top work!

On Cask at the Royal Oak ( whilst listening to various impromptu folky numbers from random punters on guitars etc at 1am) Pours light golden. Citrus hoppy aroma. Chunky hop character. Pine. Biscuit. Pale malts. Nice big IBU. Fresh. Refreshing. Delicious cask ale.

3.2
3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Cask at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Rome. Nearly clear gold with a billowy and lasting large-bubbled white head. Medium-light body, medium sweetness, hoppy and bitter with low natural carbonation leaving it a little watery, but there’s enough malt succulence to hold it together, and the oily hoppiness lingers long after in a grassy finish. Aroma is noble / citric hops with notes of lemon zest and herbs and diacetyl that comes across as burnt butter and something oddly like olive oil as well. It’s quenching and bittersweet and gulpable but lacks depth with both malt and hops.

shoestring (436) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Lovely refreshing citrus. Pale yellow with nice head . Maybe served little too warm as impatient. Just before being sickly or overpowering with the grapefruit it pulls back with the hops. Another winner from fyne
