Pours deep golden colour, 2 finger head, which sticks around, looks great. Smell is nice and hoppy with floral and fruity hints. The taste is hoppy, light bitterness with an underlying malt taste to it. Very pleasent, the Feel is fresh and crisp. Overall a really nice beer. It's recommended with spicy dishes and lamb.

Pours a pale gold with a little carbonation. Clear. White head recedes to a ring.

Grassy, floral nose.

Tastes of citrus with a light, bitter finish.

Smooth, velvety mouthfeel with subtle carbonation.

Smooth, easy drinker. Very pleasant.

Beautiful lemony citrus aroma. Slightly hazy darker golden in color with soapy skin of a head.. Taste is hops and malt. Finish is dry and slightly chalky. Wonderful aroma on a very drinkable bitter.

golden colour with decent white head. Light aroma of citrus, biscuity, maybe some butterscotch, and the taste is pretty much the same. Pretty easy drinking beer.

Served at room temperature from 500ml bottle into handled pint mug.

A) Clear Pilsner-gold with 1cm fluffy white head and a few big bubbles. Looks good if it was a lager, for an ale....?

S) Not a lot to say it hasn't been in the fridge. Some fudgy English hops if you take a very deep sniff.

T) Quite subtle but warm English hops with a pleasant tinge of the Cascade hops. Quite a clever beer, because the Cascade taste which is the main appeal of this one fades quickly leaving a flat after taste, giving you only one sensible option - have another drink.

M) Light and refreshing, as a golden ale should be. Nicely carbonated.

O) I am drinking this at the wrong time of the year (Boxing Day, part of a gift set of Badger beers). However, I quite like it. Would be a good one in a beer garden in Dorset on a warm June day.

Worth a shout if you see it.

Very light amber. Decent frothy head.
Plenty of floral English hop.
Reasonably balanced flavour.
Light to moderate feel.
An unassuming and somewhat refreshing English summer ale.
