worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, - OCT 21, 2012
Hazy high yellow gold with a thin, fizzy, frothy, no lace, diminishing, off-white head. Smells of toasted and caramel malt, sweet fruit, buttery, with a sharp grassy hops and flowers. Medium watery body with soft carbonation. Tastes of hops and dry toasted finish. Citrus and pine needles. Rather enjoyable and easy to drink.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, 3.55/pint. Beautiful looking very pale amber beer with a smooth, white head. Theres straw grassy, malty notes in the nose and a very well balanced sweet malt and bitter grain taste with a crisp, refreshing palate. Very sessionable and thoroughly enjoyable.

Bottle from Hops in a Bottle. Pours gold, slightly hazy, two finger off white head. Aroma light floral notes, toasted malts, citrus too. Taste of initial malt, biscuityness, then bitter orange, grapefruit...a little thin for my liking but overall not bad!

ReV2 (175) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
On draught from The Nelson Arms, Middleton by Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Grassy hop aroma, golden ale with a slight haze. Sweetcorn & grapefruit, course hop finish, way too much. I struggled with this one, poor balance between the malt and hops.

Theydon_Bois (18424) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickers, 28/12/13 - dem pesky golden blondes! Lightly hazed golden with a good sized off white cap. Nose is floral hop, tangy citrus leanings, bitter orange, lightly toasted malt. Taste comprises peach notes, bitter orange, dank hop presence, hint of grapefruit. Medium bodie, fine carbonation, drying bitterness in the closure. This cask was fresh on and showed itself to be a GB in fine fettle!

scotty (1177) - SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Clean, pale gold, thin white head, some lacing. Fresh citrus hops on the nose. Medium bodied, lots of hops, perhaps a tad too much, the whole taste part seems a wee bit unbalanced, Ive had worse tho! Bottle from B&M.
