Cask. Yellowish golden colour, small bubbly head. Aroma is floral, grassy, nectary and a bit sulphury with some herbal notes. Flavour is herbal, honeylike sweetness, some bready and grassy notes to it. Surprisingly earthy and bitter golden ale.

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London</i>
Hazy deep blond color. Original aroma, mild, with a mix of cookies, lemon, malt; delicate but very interesting. Light malt flavor, a bit flowery, with a delicate but nice citrusy hopping. Very pleasant.

Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 10. Gold with white head. Oh my word, in amongst the big bruisers of the IPA world, the hoptastics, sat this little beauty, I was going to skip over it too, certainly glad I didnt. It starts with a wonderful fresh aroma, mown hay came to mind, then a citric fruitiness, a balance of apricot and lemony grapefruit, I was thinking, so what, Ive tasted the like before, but then it kept moving, tingling the tongue, a joi de vivre came over me, dryness moving in, it had so much length to it. A remarkable beer in my book and loved every minute, literally, of it, so much so I had to spend time telling everyone.

Fin (10300) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Cask, gravity at Merton Summer Beer Festival, 17-07-10 A clean gold colour with a white head,looks really good. Simple but pleasant clean, citrussy aroma, Fruity with loads of citrus in the mouth and a nice bitterness, some juicy orange, touch dry at the end. I think that if Id have had time to sit and drink this and relax its rating may have been better and probably closer to Glens but I kept taking snatches of this in between serving and so it was treated a little unfairly. Good beer all the same. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov15 3.7

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Wootton WMC. A bright old coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is big and citrus with notes of oranges. The taste is pretty bitter. More citrus fruits and especially oranges. Its tasty but actually may be a little too bitter for its own good.

Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of lemon, grass and a solid citrussy bitterness. Medium body with balanced sweetness. Nice one. In short: fresh and hoppy golden ale.
