Una Golden di alto livello, soprattutto al palato per la grande bevibilita. Amarognola con un grado basso e quindi molto facile da bere. ladnewton (2019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2011
Cask at the Jolly Butchers, London on 2nd February 2011. Clear gold body with white foam head affording full lacing. Aroma contains passion fruit, cheese and hemp notes. Main taste is grassy hop, passion fruit notes and a delightful grapefruit kick. Back-of-mouth saltiness is lovely. A bitter, grassy, lengthy and satisfying finish on a zingy mouthfeel. An excellent pint. Bullit (4684) - Burgos, SPAIN - FEB 25, 2011
Cask @ Guildford Arms. Clear golden colour, sparkling white head. Aroma is massive citrus, well malted. Flavour is lots of citrus, malty backbone. Juicy. Medium bodied, well balanced and extremely drinkable. Fairly bitter finish. Another cracker by Fyne. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2011
UPDATED: APR 4, 2012 Hand-pull at SRAF 2011. Pale amber pour, some bubbly head. Light clean citrus/grass nose. Nice bitter front, hint of breadiness with a smooth but definitely hoppy linger. I don?t think it?s amazing, but it?s good. Re-rate, cask at Cloisters. Pale golden, thick creamy head. Amazingly juicy fruity nose. Mango, citrus, pineapple. Slightly bready with massively hoppy flavour. Nice juicy hoppy linger. Totally different beer! DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Cask gravity, Derby Summer BF 2011. Tried on the (eavesdropped) recommendation of a CAMRA chap behind the bar. Third in the Great Hall watching some septuagenarian Dixieland jazz cats swing like muthafuckers. Pale yellow with a lacing, well-retained foam. Spliffy, mouldering satsuma aroma. Big waft of ganja at the front; well-wrung greenery, breakfast juice, just the right trace of Rich Tea to finish. Top stuff. A great rating experience.
Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Bottled 50cl. It pours a clear pale golden beer with a mountainous white head. Great hop profile. Sweat, grapefruit, quince and vanilla throughout. Light bodied. Good bitterness. Beautiful lacework. Biscuity pale malt back. Average carbonation. Remarkably dry finish which is reminiscent of grapefruit, whipped cream and vanilla. A masterpiece. Extremely delicious.

Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Good old Maudite glass. Shared with Cole. Good old Cole. Pours clear yellow, with a straw-green hue; thin white head, though remarkably long-lasting considering how thin it started out; lacing is spotty to good. Nose is tropical fruit: Bitter melon, some lemongrass, lovely fruit esters just all over the place with this one. Also clean malt, and some earthy spiciness deeper down. Flavours of tart lemon, tropical fruit, and like the other Fyne Ales, very grassy. A shade on the thin side, but at 3.8%, perhaps one of the greatest session beers I’ve ever had!

Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours pale yellow with a fine, white cream head. Crisp pale malt nose, straw, dry lemon. Light sweet flavor with dry crackers, biscuits, mellow citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, dry finish, more pale malts, biscuits. Solid. Very mild grassy hops at the end. Super drinkable. One of the best widely available British golden ales. essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2013
500ml bottle from The Real Ale Warehouse, drunk today. Light gold, clear. Pours thick, fluffy white head, which lasts very well. Good lacing. Mid-light carbonation. Aroma - Very fresh, very zesty grapefruit & a bit of sweeter citrus (tangerine). Lots of juicy, aromatic citrus rind oil. Very fresh, tangy & clean-smelling, and grassy. Also a touch of floral-ness & some lemon. Fresh hop oil - bit spicy. Behind that, a nice, crisp, cereal-ish, grainy, unobtrusive pale malt. Lovely, complex, but citrus-dominated aroma, that isn’t OTT or perfumey; just appetising. Taste - Balanced & light, with lot of citrus. Very lightly sweet, cereally pale malt: Fairly standard pale malt body, for a blond ale; bit understated, malt is inoffensive & very much secondary to the aromatic, dry citrus flavours. Quite a lot of citrus flavours going on, but perhaps unsurprisingly, they don’t quite live up to the intense aroma, though still good. Lemon, sweet grapefruit & grass. Lightly bitter hops. Bit of floral. Lightly dry, lightly bitter finish, with some dry citrus zest flavours left on the tongue, leaving you wanting more. Light body, with a bit of creaminess for mouthfeel. Very drinkable, with lovely citrus aromas & flavours, with a crisp & refreshing finish.
