The ale is let down by a poor bitterness, which is a shame considering what this beer represents. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Low carbonation. Very mild piney hops with a trace of citrus. A flash of minerals before a dry finish and a mildly bitter aftertaste. I’ve come late to Roosters beers but I’ve largely enjoyed what I have had and I will certainly miss their inventiveness. Good luck!
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol October 2011. Gold with a frothy, white head. Big, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, lemon and a touch of pepper. Flavour had lots more fruit, a hint of soap and lengthy, dry finish. Good. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma is a little sweet with grassy hops, caramel and yeast notes. Similar flavours, quite bitter with a creamy mouth-feel. Nice lingering bitterness also. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Eastgate Northampton. A blonde beer with a white head and lots of lace. A nice citrussy beer. Good sharp grapefruit and lemon notes on the nose. Citrus bitterness in the mouth with hints of shampoo. Good US hops thrroughout. Very tasty. tombyars (1766) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2011
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber with a thin white head. Dusty floral notes to the short hoppy aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt base gives strong, refreshing fruit flavours of juicy lychees, kiwi and gooseberry. Lemony hops add another citric element into the aftertaste which compliments the malt well. Finish is dry and rather tart with grapefruit peel notes evident. An excellent session ale and highly recommended. imdownthepub (15330) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Lots of dry, hoppy notes, fresh, grapefruit, kiwi fruit sharp and really pleasant drinking. So good we had several pints, which is exactly how it should be.
