Hand pulled at the Pretty Bricks, Walsall. Pale gold. Pretty featureless Golden. Slight citrus tang, which is slightly icey and sharp. Reasonable.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2011
@Hop pole aylesbury. Nice pale colour, gold- orange, slight haze. Leafy tobacco orangey aroma. Light, not much malt, strong orangey flavour, watery empty finish then late earthy orangey bitterness that lasts well. Lacking body and malt guts. Lacking gravitas really. A bit one dimensionally citric but certainly not too sweet or sticky. Ok.

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 23/1/2011. Gold ion colour with a slight, white head. Grapefruit hop aroma. Pleasant, marmalade flavours, that grew more pronounced, with some sweetish malts and pleasantly dry finish. Enjoyable.

DruncanVeasey (8059) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle from The Wine Cellar, Lutterworth. Burnished gold with a pure white foam. Bright lemon and lime jelly, grassy hop aroma with a slight mineral edge. Lime and grassy hop, lemon wine gums, sweet cashew and crackers malt linger. Nothing fancy, but bags of ringing, zesty hop and biscuity malt. Good.

[Cask at the Old Road Tavern, Chippenham] Slightly cloudy golden colour with a moderate white head. The strong and lasting initial bitterness was too much for me. Behind it I could just about discern lemon and maybe a bit of earth, but this beer was really not for me.
