Citrus, orange-like aroma with a dry, hoppy taste and finish. Lightly carbonated so makes for good summer session ale. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Gary (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
(bottled) Good hoppy nose; creamy mouth , with unity between fruity hops and mild malt sweetness. Very easy to sink. Bottling something delicate like this is probaly tough , so this would ovbiously be even more vibrant cask. Nice .

harrisoni (19003) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle from M&S St Pancras. Lager and Maris Otter malts. Pale gold with thin lasting white head. Typical Crouch Vale grassy hop aroma. Good in mouth. Fullish and lovely tangerine orange fruit on finish. It’s a decent grassy golden ale with a very good finish, but Crouch Vale don’t seem to have kicked on from Brewers Gold. It’s a rather delicious summer gold beer with lager drinkability. Subtles and decent. Finish is good though.

leaparsons (10657) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle. Bright gold with a thin foam. Aromas are biscuit and hay malts with grassy hops. Citrus with some floral notes. Flavours are sweet, jammy citrus with crisp hops and low malts. Refreshing. One to convert lager drinkers with.

imdownthepub (14982) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from M&S, Summertown, Oxon. Gold with white head. Initially quite bubbly, carbonated, but it settled down to quite a fresh tasting beer, light malts with a tangy hop character, lemony, lagery just with a little more depth. Nicely made beer and definitely worth a try.

RuneStumo (2691) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2010
06.08.2010, 0,5l Bottle bought in York, UK - Thanks Trine my dear wife! The label says this is a "Seasonal guest". Golden yellow colour. Clear with a thin layered white head. Aroma is dominated by hops and bitterness. There is not to much malt, and flavour and aroma is secured by a nice hoppiness. Lively carbonated. Bitter lasting aftertaste.
