COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned; Regular.
A new golden beer from Nethergate, drinking more like a best bitter than its strength suggests. The fruity and spicy overtones are noticeable from the start on the nose and palate, whilst at the end the the sweet, soft orange notes return, resulting in a complete, well-rounded finish.

Bottled: A nice, golden ale with a thick foamy head. A light but distinctive, citrus flavour and very moreish.

Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Pint bottle served in a chalice. Orangey gold, thin white head. Citrus aroma, flavour had a hint of the filling in a good quality orange cream chocolate. Sweet, creamy with a bitter finish. Nice, but I would echo the blurb: it’s more like a bitter than a blond ale.

3.4
JorgeLee (2280) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Cask at the Duke of Hamilton, NW3 with the old man. Quite pale yellow colour. Very dry, some initial chalk malt and lemon hint, finish has a good bone dry hop smack to it.

3.1
justm (165) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2012
Cask at the Blue Boar, Billericay Essex. Pours a pale orange with a lighter golden edge and a tight white head. It has a malty, biscuity aroma with floral notes and a hint of orange. Dry, smooth, bitter and lightly carbonated on the palate. Good lacing down the glass. The taste has a slight bitter grapefruit and orange peel flavour becomming biscuit before a wave of bitter burnt sugar. Quite a complex beer with a dry biscuit aftertaste.

2.6
omhper (25958) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Cask at The Drum, Leyton, London. Clear deep golden. Sweaty vegetable aroma. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sweaty and salty with long resiny bitterness. Quite primitive.

2.5
BeerSkull (1372) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2011
Aroma and taste of hops and malt with light hints of caramel and fruit. The taste is rather thin. In the aftertaste there is some lingering hops bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (8485) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington. Almost lager looks with streaming carbonation and a dense Gillette head. Herbal, pine and mown grass aroma with some orange peel yeastiness. Bit one dimensional with a dominant polished pine sort of taste; some soda and pale malt nuttiness. OK but drab.

3.4
berkshirejohn (6771) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2011
Cask at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Amber in colour with a tight cream head; crainy, citrus aroma; full bodied, with a an orange fruit flavour; quite sweet at first, but then well-balanced with a sharp grapefruit finish. A really mouth-watering Golden Ale. Ecellent.
