A: gold, rapidly diminishing head.
S: none detected.
T: well-balanced malt to hop. Sweetness and dryness.
M: reasonable mouth-coating. Medium bodied
O: found it hard to identify characteristics of this beer. It is nonetheless pleasant.

given the hot weather in the middle of September , this is a perfect beer. A real fruity hop nose and flavour tasting a lot like some ISAs happening around here. Nice finish and crisp dryish note to make you want more . Well done and a lot more hops for a UK golden ale. At 4.2% it suits the session trend happening in North America.

Random lone lost bottle found at the back of a shelf at the local Tesco supermarket
A refreshing not unenjoyable spritely ale that is good looking and light bodied

Pint, hand-pulled at my local Spoon’s in Wellington during this years March Beer Fest.

Deep golden body with a full, sturdy white head of bubbles on top, the head produced some good lacing as the beer level fell in the UK sleeve it was poured into.

A bit too much citrus fruit for me (Citra and Nelson Sauvin Hops used): smell and taste both refreshing in nature but not enough malt presence for my liking: a summer brew, not a beer to have in the middle of March in the UK.
