This beer is a homage to the lead character in True Grit. It’s a robust pale ale, with a great length of flavour, loaded with juicy fruit aromas from its combination of American hops.

Cask conditioned handpump Mr Foleys Leeds 23/09/12. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. Nice citrussy grapefruity fresh hoppy aroma. I thought these hops were New Zealand but apparently not. Anyway it tastes really good too. The hops are again lively and although the malts a little sweeter than I’d like they just about manage to balance effectively. A tasty beer no doubt.

ManVsBeer (10969) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Paler golden with a creamy head. There’s a palatable balance of malt and hop throughout its character.

Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 25 Apr 2012. Poured a lightly hazy golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of peaches, straw and floral hops. Some light citrus hop flavours, with bready malt and passionfruit. Finish was grass, satsuma and cereal.

Cask at Doric Arch, London. Super smooth nectar, nice tart hop. Well balanced. Drank this, wanted more. Great condition. Excellent Golden.

allmyvinyl (11073) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Cask at The Guildford. Pours pale gold, thin white head. Light grassy and citrus aromas. Taste is the same. Clean, dry finish. Pretty thin and unexciting.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, small whiet head. Palate is light and semi dry. Modest carbonation. Smooth light malt, slightly sweet. Little floral, little grassy. Mild citrus. Dry finish. Oh dear! Roosters are two for two in the disappointment stakes tonight. Not as bad as the YPA but still dull.

SilkTork (5881) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
JDW, Maidstone. Pale gold colour. Biscuit malt. Bold but not aggressive citric hops. Drinkable and pleasant. Meets but does not exceed expectations.
