AshtonMcCobb (6667) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from the Bottle Bank.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - lemon and pale malt.
Taste - massive lemon pith note again with a touch of malt in the background.
Palate - light bodied with a long dry tangy texture that continues through the finish.
Overall - solid but a bit on the bitter side. Definitely a summer beer.

500ml bottle. Barely clear, yellow-ish golden colour with huge, frothy to macropore, osteoporosing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of gooseberry and a grassy touch, more sweet-ish hints of plum, biscuit malty background. Taste is dry, grainy, strawy, hints of gooseberry; watery, prickling carbonation. daniele (9219) - ITALY - SEP 5, 2014

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold, billowy white head. Grainy aroma, faint citrus. Taste is light sweet, biscuity. OK. berkshirejohn (6522) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
50cl bottle from the Hogs Back Brewery shop. Clear amber to start with a billowing white head, some sediment adding a slight haze by the end of the pour; yeasty aroma with a trace of citrus; clean sitrus taste, with a hint of orange juice; and a fruity finish. A pleasant golden ale, but nothing more.

Bottle 50cl from Abm @ home. Pours golden with a white head. Some fruits, grass and malt in the aroma.Light, fruity flavor, some caramel. jacekziegler (23) - Newton Abbot, Devon, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Cask on gravity. Pleasant brew if you’re looking for some tasty refreshment. For the style it is more interesting than most other boring goldens. leaparsons (10598) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white head. Aromas are bready yeast with apple and minerals. Lemon squash with hints of honey. Flavours are biscuit malts with yeast and a nutty lager character. Dry and grassy. Better than my initial impressions. minutemat (5659) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Quite a pleasant orange citrus coursing through this beer, well-blanaced, nice light and crisp. Not bad at all. BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint at lunchtime in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 13th Dec 2013.
Golden body with a full snow white head.
Floral feel to the hop and malty nose, orange blossom being the main flowery aroma.
Those orange notes continue into the taste, this is a fruity brew with only a passing hint of hop bitterness or malt sweetness. Different and almost interesting.
An OK session Ale with enough ’unique’ flavours to test your taste buds even if they are not excited.
