This refreshing, well-balanced, amber-coloured ale is made with 100% Cornish malts and whole hop flowers, resulting in a character where malt, fruit and floral aromas combine with a hoppy, zingy bittersweet taste.

Shakespeare’s Head Spoons, Holborn. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Okay minerally mild hops. A little juicy citrus - shot down by a bothersome sulphur streak.

Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Toasted hay on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with notes of dry hay and straw, light nuts and white bread toast. Light in body with fine carbonation. Mild spice in the finish, some bread, straw and light fruits. Pretty basic bitter but not too bad.

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Cask handpull at Shakespeare Head Spoons. Amber off white head. Sulphurus burton snatch and not great afterwards. Leaves a mouldy leaf taste in the mouth

imdownthepub (15517) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Quite a fruity, light beer with a late hoppy, sharp note, some berry notes, redcurrant perhaps then orange zest in the follow through. I quite enjoyed this one.

The ale is distinctive for its hoppy bitterness in both its aroma and its taste.

leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Hazy gold with a firm cream head. Aromas are biscuit with caramel and stewed apple. Yeasty with floral notes. Flavours are dry biscuit with hints of honey and caramel. Very peppery on the palate with earthy apple and pear. A decent bitter.

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A golden beer with a whitish head. A fairly sweet floral beer in the mouth. Notes of toffee. The aroma is faintly sulphuric. Tastes good with a decent body. Not bad.

Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; light brown colour moderately bitter, slight amount of hop average.
