A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

On cask at Cross Stobbs Inn, Barrhead - Clear yellow body, thin but lasting white head. Nose is grassy, a bit of citrus, some herbiness there too. Taste is clean, a bit of diacetyl at the back, but not unpleasant.

Advertised as "Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more." Yep haunted for sure. It tastes okay until you get the after taste. Little bit hoppy and someone says it tasted like paper (has anyone on here actually eaten paper since they were like 2?). So cant confirm that but its the aftertaste that is haunting me. Some people might like it but its not for me. Next pint will be something different. Dirty orange is an accurate colour. Enjoy

The_Osprey (7571) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond as Kelburn Goldihops, 3.8%. Matt dirty orange, still, clear, small scummy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is airy and watery up front, some green apple later on. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is thin, apple, some astringent banana peel, oatcake, soft bitterness. Drinkable but insipid. Pretty poor really.

Theydon_Bois (18418) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Cask at the Carpenters Arms, Tourist Town Zentrum, 29/12/15. Clear golden with a well appointed off white covering that retains well. Nose is pale malt, light caramel, straw, bready, a touch thin. Taste comprises grain, faint citrus, paper, grass. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close. Looks and feels good ... nothing on offer at the business end .. scroll past.

imdownthepub (14027) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a thin, watery beer, there is a damp, grainy cereal character, then a dullish floral note. Not really for me.

MrJamesMcEwan (227) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Cask. Watery, citrus. A horrible sulfur taste ruins it, on the nose too. Kelburn are normally good.

ManVsBeer (9421) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Leeds Beer Festival 2015. Has a malty bitterness and its hops are evident too. Its lighter tasting but not thin.

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Pint in the Waterside Inn, Barrhead. Light golden ale with slight head. Hints of flora on the nose. Refreshing citrus tastes. Nothing lingers. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.
