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.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a citrus and peppery hop flavour, malty notes followed by a grassy and earthy bitter finish.

Cask at the Wenlock Arms, on 11th July 2009. Pale golden body, limited white head which disappeared quite rapidly. Some haziness. Hop aromas greet the nose with scents of grass and dry grapefruit. Citric astringency takes over with peppery notes also present. The seasoned tongue will detect subtle spices which continue in the dry finish. Quite a sophisticated beer in terms of flavour. Enjoyed this one.

imdownthepub (15132) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Bath. Pale straw with white head. Lemony sharp, clear beer, perhaps a little creamy, but good sharp flavours. Good sudsy beer.

davet100 (16) - Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2011
On cask at Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club. Pours golden with a hoppy aroma. A very impressive beer, with a complex character and brimming with somewhat tropical flavours. Fruity on the palate with hints of orange and other citrus flavours but leading to a dry finish with a fairly moderate bitterness. Big fan!

SarkyNorthener (4765) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
Bottle from M&S, Aberystwyth. Golden amber beer with medium head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, some sherbet and light pine resin. Light to medium bodied. Very good beer.

Nose is predominantly resin and pine with some citrus notes. Taste has the same qualities with a sherbet like flavour. Soft mouthfeel. Good showcase of the Columbus hop.

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.

HampshirePhil (243) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
500 ml bottle - Pale golden appearance, dry hoppy taste with a smooth but dry finish.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
Clear golden pour with a thin white head and lace. Malt aroma. Citrus, crisp malt flavour. Nice refreshing beer.

3.7
DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2009
Cask in the rake. Alround rating: Pale malt is subdued by light wheatyness with lots of lemon and a light sharp acidity, some orange peel comes in too and makes it a bag of banter. Very drinkable stuff.
