Clear, golden color. Small head that fades quickly and leaves minimal lacing.
Nice, balanced aroma. Some earthy hops and bready malts. Nothing special.
Taste is disappointing. A bit of malt in the front, some zesty, lemony flavor in the middle and a dry aftertaste.
Light and soft body with medium carbonation. No alcohol presence at all.

Overall I didn't enjoy this beer. It looks and smells fine but it really lacks some taste.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Oct 2013. Acquired from a supermarket some time back. Described on the label as a golden ale hopped with Amarillo.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A golden-amber colour with medium carbonation. Contains chunky floating sediment that looks like coagulated protein. Forms a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating. Aroma of light, grainy malt with hints of mild citrus, stewed hops and fruity ale yeast. OK but not much going on.

Tastes of light malt with a dry finish. Notes of mild grain, indistinct citrus, stewed hops and faint ale yeast. A restrained, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with spritzy carbonation and a light, insubstantial body. Dries the palate. Somewhat astringent, followed by an aftertaste of earthy yeast and bitter stewed hops.

S'OK. Some hop character but this hardly breaks the mould. Looks rather lacklustre, with strange floaties. The aroma and flavour are a bit better; balanced and possessing a hint of citrus. Body is alright but perhaps too carbonated. An average, uneventful golden ale. Nothing special - no need to seek it out.

I'm sure there is a taste to this beer, butit is lost in the watering down that happens right before bottling. Disappointing both in bottle and cask form with no body. There is nothing 'bad' about this beer, but nothing good either.

Cask pint at Marborough Head. Pours straw with medium head that quickly dissipates leaving just a few spots. Nose is mostly missing...grainy with weak UK hops. Flavor is light and crisp with a slightly off flavour in the finish. A bit watery. Really uninspired. Overall, drinkable bit forgettable. Wouldn't buy again.
