HopsDoctor83 (73) - Walsall, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Strong lemon grass aroma with aftertaste to match. Slightly acidic with strong bitter taste. Nice colour slight lacing pulled without sparkler

HopDoctorsHusband (8) - Bloxwich, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018 does not count
My pint pulled without a sparkler. Light copper colour with lemongrass being the strongest aroma. Pleasant tart taste that sits nicely on the roof of the mouth. A good well balanced pint.

Parmenion777 (396) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2018 Pours an almost clear gold colour with a small foamy white head. A light malt, citrus and twiggy aroma. A sweet light malt taste, little caramel with a citrusy bitterness and a some grassy, twigg hop flavours in the finish. Nice.

Grumbo (4599) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Cask at the Cricketers, Ipswich. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of hops, grass, flowers and caramel. Moderate sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Light body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation.

BeardedAvenger (1339) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Cask at Swan, Farnborough. Floral aroma, with a bitter citrus edge. Bright gold. Thick but frothy white head. A really hoppy bitter hit, exaggerated by the fact that I was not expecting it. Son sweetness comes through into the finish. Light bodied. Watery but has a certain slickness. Light carbonation. Long finish. Had no expectations so a pleasant surprise. A gold with an IPA streak.

ManVsBeer (11500) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Cask @ Henry Boons, Wakefield. Golden with a creamy head. Bitter in character with a sweetened hop-maltiness.

gegwilson (3837) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Cask at the brewery tap room. Golden with a foamy cream head. Hoppy citrus aroma. Nice hoppy citrus flavour with a little marmalade and a long bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good for a golden ale.

The_Osprey (9943) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Cask at The Railway, Putney as ’Quantock Wills Neck’, 4.3%. Pale orange, clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is a bit cheesy, chutney on bread. Body is fairly light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is grassy, straw, burnt biscuit, oatcake, fairly bitter. Not bad at all. A pretty decent golden ale.

tombyars (1817) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2016
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 14th February 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear straw in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral hops present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt base gives a fresh fruity flavour of green apples but little else. Bitter hop resins impart a fresh zesty citrus note to the long aftertaste which is not astringent at all. Bitter hoppy finish gives a light floral taste in the palate and it reminded me of Copper Dragon Golden Pippin in flavour. A poor Golden Ale which tastes far weaker than the ABV suggests.

harrisoni (19754) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Cask handpull at County Hotel Spoons Ashford. Hazy gold lasting white head. some biscuit some tart citrus hop bit of Sherbet some ok condition.
