From cask. Pours clear and golden yellow with a fully gone head. Aroma is fruity. Mild citrusy and peachy hops flavoured. Bitter and mild citric into the finish.

Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. I’m going to persist with Picitsh until I like them. Pale gold beer. Lasting cream head. Some yeast on aroma. Some odd hop on this, herby and slightly sweet. Well made, but just a touch sweet maybe.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2008
Cask (Kingston Arms, Cambridge)
Fairly middle-of-the-road blond ale. Crisp zesty aroma. Rather thin in the body, and decent hops aren’t enough to make it stand out from the crowd.

imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 06. Golden beer with volcanic white head. This was a fresh one, the beer exploded from the cask as if it was in a hurry to show you what it was made of. It certainly is a particularly accomplished Golden Ale, light fruity with a chewey late bitterness. Citrusy with a little hop oiliness, very good.

Fin (10536) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Cask at Merton Beer Festival July 7th, 8th 2006. Poured golden and like Glenn say’s it was very lively with a large white frothy head. Nice aroma of hops led to a wonderfully citrusy refreshing slightly dry beer. This is another brewery who seem to make some super beers and whilst I prefer their Alchemist this was certainly another super beer.

ManVsBeer (10448) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Peoples History Museum Beer Festival 2016. Hazy light golden-amber in colour. Has a pleasant easy-drinking texture with an underlying fruitiness try that is better stated in its nose. Hoppy and crisp.
