AshtonMcCobb (6410) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
Can from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Appearance - very pale golden. Nice fluffy head. Nose - oranges and a hint of cake. Taste - oranges again and with a bitter pithy oramge finish. Light resin comes in too but not top much. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - decent ale. Would say it was more in the session ipa style.

jjsint (2837) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Handpull cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Light gold, very little head but lots of natural carbonation. Light citrus aroma. Bittersweet taste with hints of grapefruit and a trifle soapy. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Thin body. Good without being great, Id like a lot more character but alas it is not to be.

berkshirejohn (6375) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Cask at the Euston Tap, Euston. A pale amber pour with a creamy white head; aroma of damp straw; citrusy taste; and a long grassy bitter finish. A drinkable, but rather unexciting golden ale.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Cask at CBC, Clerkenwell on 7th January 2016. Gold with disappearing off white foam and scant lacing. Malty aroma with berry fruits. A sweetish fruitiness in-mouth with fine citrus and floral hop notes. A late lemony burst. A crisp, floral finish. Zingy mouthfeel and lightish body.

HogTownHarry (6569) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
September 11, 2014 - on cask at Euston Tap. Was a pretty wild pour - it settled in the glass to a very pale gold with quite the display of tiny suspended black floaties, but only really visible in the bright light of the doorway of the Tap ... bright white foamy lasting head too. Smells like a slightly sour golden ale - and not really sour in the "good" way, more dishwater - generic light fruit and grassy bitterness behind (actually, a little puke-y). Taste - some citrus bitterness, but more golden ale/lager character - heather and honey sweetness, light grain, actually tastes sticky and gluteny, with slow-emerging true bitterness --- hey, no dishwater or sick in the taste, so its all good (7-). Chewy, solid body, airy and eventually quite bitter, but you have to wait until the aftertaste, it takes that long to kick in. Interesting.
