doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 One of my favorite session ales while living in England. Tasting notes from 2004 Banbury beer festival. Golden with lasting frothy head. Citrus and floral aroma notes. Citrus, fruit, and balancing malt flavours. Full bodied, with bitter finish.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Half pint at the brewpub: poured light yellow with another fizzy white head. Mild floral hop aroma with a little pine and citrus. A little soapy too. Mild pine and citrus notes in the flavor. Fairly watery body with a mild bitter finish. Decent.

3.4
Svesse (8932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2008
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 26 April 2008) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with citrus (mainly lemon) and grassy hops. Fruity taste with notes of lemon and grassy hops in a very aromatic, hoppy finish. Slightly soapy, with some sweetness. Not very complex, but light and very hoppy.

3.2
berkshirejohn (6760) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Straw with a creamy head;citrus aroma, with a hint of lime; strong citrus flavour balanced by sweeter fruits, I got apricot, and malt; long bitter finish. Rather one-dimensional, but a very pleasant ale.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - MAR 31, 2008
A yellow pouring beer with a large floral and lemon aroma. I would have put money on it being cascade hops but apparently not. Simple but very nice. A little thin maybe, could do with some residual sweetness but that would be my only criticisim.

3.5
ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with a small fluffy lasting head. Dryish, fresh hop aroma of grapefruit, lemon and grains. Light-bodied and really quaff-able with plenty of lemon-zest and grapefruit with a grainy maltiness in the shadows. Dryish but not overly bitter finish of grapefruit, green apples, minerals and lemon-zest. Really nice UK Golden ale with plenty of hops and possesses a ridiculousy high drinkability

2.2
Tranquillity (2564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Cask. Weird fruity aroma: can’t find anything particular. Taste some hops and grapefruit. Not too full.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Cask at the Approach, Nottingham. JHB is a thoroughly delightful beer with a pale golden colour, fresh floral aroma, and really full flavour for the ABV of citrus fruit and bitter hops. Another favourite of mine.

3.5
Christian (13927) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2007
Cask - GBBF 2007. Yellow with a small but lasting white head. Refreshing citrus aroma with lemon and tangerine. Dry and hoppy and lasting flavour
