Bottle. Foggy golden colour, moderate white head of good retention. Aroma: sweet biscuit, blood that disappears after some minutes, spicy hop. Light to medium body. Medium sweet and light bitter taste. Floral and spicy hopping. Not bad. ManVsBeer (10792) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017

Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Bright, hazy golden yellow. Big, fluffy white head. ***
Nose: Grains, yeast, a hint of lemon. Mild herbs. ***
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, but hardly watery. Active carbonation. ***
Taste: Light caramel, floral hops, yeast and mild herbs at the start. Rather hoppy and bitter toweards the middle, some herbs. Bitter finish, or hops and a little lemon, more lemony in the aftertaste. ***
Impressions: Yeasty and agreeably bitter, well, "bitter" (although that style designation really doesn’t tell anyone anything!) with quite a profile to it, more substance than most golden ales. Well done. ozzatoadisback (187) - ITALY - JUL 27, 2016
Dark golden/light orange. Head is not big but pretty thick and nicely persistent. Moderate lacing. Aroma of light caramel and crackery/crisp malts, a herbal hint and subtle fruitiness. Taste follows the aroma with light to average sweetness and bitterness. Finish is dry and distinctly bitter, but in a delicate way. Both aroma and taste are not bold, but definitely fine. Light body with low to medium crispness, easy mouthfeel. Nice one

Bottle at home. Pours clear pale golden, nose is floral, musty toffee, taste is dry toffee, floral. bnwokedi89 (106) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Golden blonde beer with a slight undertone of bitter flavor. Beer has quite a bit of carbonation/fizz and pour pretty fast out of the bottle so take care in pouring. I wasn't able to taste the hit of sweetness that was referenced on the label. Instead, this beer tasted a bit metallic.
This is by far my least favorite offering from Hobson.

Bottle from Gloucester Services M5. Golden colour with a white head. Weak hop and musty aroma. Flat taste. jjsint (3315) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Cask at the Bell & Talbot, Bridgnorth. Light gold with a small uneven white head. Light malty aroma. Taste picks up a bit with a basic but pleasant bittersweet. Hops aren’t particularly noticeable so the malt rules the roost. A bit warm and buttery in the finish. No thanks. 47574xeCD (1180) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Cask at The Vaults, Shrewsbury 06/06/15.
