From cask at Blackfriars. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is vague malt, light hops fruity. Bitter, vague citrusy, toasted malty and light breadish. Bitter and medium dry into the finish.

Clouded golden ale with no head. Hopped character with a sour aftertaste.

imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Kings Head, Bridgenorth, Shropshire. Pale gold with white head. Thinnish, dry golden ale, sharp maltiness, drying, perhaps a little underpowered but ok.

ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
3.6% gold colour with a thin head, slightly fruity aroma, citrus hop taste.

Bottle. Golden, clear ale with a thin crown of a head. Honey and ginger aroma, quite rich, perhaps a hint of mint. Lightly bitter taste that lingers longer than the ABV would have you expect. Quite watery mouthfeel. A decent, solid, no frills but perfectly pleasant summer ale.

Never really keen on beers local to Snowdonia but I will give always give this one a spin (along with Dark Side of the Moose) having first enjoyed it on Snowdon one memorable camping trip. Light in colour, strong fruity bouquet and a citrusy bitterness. Tastes stronger than it is. A good one for summer, if not summer in North Wales!

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
Cask at the Hilary step,Manchester. Light gold, thin white foamy head. Faint fruity and floral aroma. Tastes grassy, some citric hops. Quite thin.

mr_h (5476) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2012
Cask by handpump at 3 Judges, Glasgow - clear deep golden ale, thin white head, grassy hop aroma, good temperature, high carbonation, bit of caramel, not bad

BlackHaddock (7323) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Nov 09, drank Jun 09. Poured into a pint glass, it looked a golden pale colour. A firm white head sat on top, this head slowly became a collar and wispy covering. Hoppy aroma, not overpowering, but strong enough to hide anything else. Pale and Crystal malts used in the brew, but the hops win the battle of the flavours like they did in the nose. There are some citrus notes within the taste as well. Good mouthfeel considering it is only 3.6% ABV beer, plenty of taste and bite to it. A nicely put together beer.
