A very pale golden ale. A real hoppy beer packed with American Columbus hops - very bitter and thirst quenching with a satisfying herbal finish and massive aromas.

Old Fountain. Cask. Almost clear gold beer. Tidy off white head. Light palate, a little crispness. Light thij malt. A very nice sweetish floral vibe gives way to a mildly sherbet lemon - lime. There is a whisper of yeasty sulphur that stops me bolting this. Finishes light and dry with some parma violets emerging. Well - a surprise all right. A new Otley high for me. Very very drinkable.

[email protected] Rake, London. Glden colour with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, some bready malts as well as some slight notes of spices, cardboard and mild herbal notes. Flavour is quite much the same with a very bigtime citrusy tone to it.

Cask at the Euston Tap, 03/08/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate off white head that retains. Nose is earthy hops, mineral notes, bitter orange, straw. Taste comprises orange peel, straw, hint of red grapefruit, chalky mineral bite. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Decent enough earthy hop number.

harrisoni (20045) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2009
Cask handpull at The Star Inn, Huddersfield. Pale gold, lasting off white head. Yeasty pineapple on aroma. It’s a good hoppy beer with aggressive yeast character. Decent. If characterful which isn’t to everyone’s taste

Pale yellow color, firm white head. Very fruity, exotic nose with passion fruit and mango. Light palate. Fruity-flowery hoppy flavor, grassy-hayish finish. Easy going session beer, quite watery palate.
