Colour: Golden yellow. The use of Mount Hood as the aroma hop gives this beer a pungent hoppy fruitiness; think citrus fruit notably lime. There is also a hint of cereal malt on the nose which evokes the spirit of the mash from whence the beer came. On the palette the overwhelming sensation is citrus fruit (lime marmalade but also overripe grapes spring to mind) along with warming alcoholic esters before a bitter, hoppy and dry finish which is enlivened by lasting citrus (lime) and grainy malt making a late surge. A delicious blonde beer to be taken with care.

ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Fine looking, golden ale with little aroma, but its fine texture ensures a great taste.

berkshirejohn (6505) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Hazy pale amber with thin white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; tropical fruit aroma - perhaps peach; a smooth floury body with an intensely sweet, tropical fruit flavour; then a pleasanlty assertive bitterness to counteract the sweetness. Nice.

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - APR 19, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin
Golden amber, clear, thin white head, good lacing
Aroma of light caramel malts, not much else here
Taste of sweet caramel malts, bitter yeast, hints of stilton cheese, stale, bit smoky, farmyard manure, very odd, urgghh
Palate - soft carb, medium body, very dry palate. Finish - very bitter with hints of blue cheese, biscuit, big big bitter linger..again uurrggh
Overall - Couldn’t finish this...a chuck out

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A regular bittersweet nose; a bit of malt, a bit of hop. A very interesting mouth and nothing like the commercial description. Tea flavours. Sweet malts. Hedgerows hops and sweetness. Really quite odd but certainly endearing.

Leighton (21299) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 2. Pours clear gold with a white, foam head. Hay and straw, light toast in the aroma. Has a very pleasant flavor with some cereal, dough, and hay bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, light sugar finish. Nice. Looks good, too.

fonefan (49430) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2011

Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, pale malt, fruity, toffee. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20110803]

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2011
Cask. Pale, clear gold, white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, malt, yeast, butter, and a touch of corn. Dry, light to medium bodied, low bitterness. Malty, yeasty taste, citrusy hops, butter, and ending on a faint, strangely soapy note. Like a fruitier version of a Czech pils? (2011-08-04)

Oakes (17699) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask @ White Horse, Twerton. Amber-accented gold colour. The aroma is minerally, lightly caramelly and fairly earthy. The palate has a similar character, with a nice toastiness to the caramel malts.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask @ White Horse--local pub up the hill from the Royal Oak in Twerton-Bath. Bright orange-gold. Cask head fades leaving no lace. Aroma is slightly flawed with pedio. Palate is soft but somewhat slick. Resinous aromas and flavors. The hops are nice. Also has a slight smokiness as from peat. Perhaps this wasn’t in the best condition possible, will retry.

leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Golden with minimal foam. Aromas are biscuit and citrus with grapefruit. Floral with some woody pine. Iced tea with hints of peach. Flavours are lemon tea with caramel malts. A bit of a mish-mash of malts and fruitiness. Some light citrus acidity with a fair degree of yeastiness. Jammy fruitiness. OK.
