Amazing colour, look at that, stunning!! Fruity and extremely moorish .... this is just far to enjoyable and easy to drink, some lemon and grapefruit, and there might even be a hinto of bubblegum, but it is not sweet or cloying, medium bodies and clean ending

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12.
Clear pale blonde with a good sized white head.
Pale malts on the nose allied to grapefruit and a little piss.
Citrus fruits, grapefruit and bitter sweet tones combine together in the flavour of this beer.
Medium bodied with a bit of bite, moderate carbonation lending to a bitter sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask in the Old Spot, Dursley. Pale golden ale with not much of a head. Nice example of a pale golden bitter, dryish, complex mix of some slightly grainy malt and citrusy hop. Good bitter finish, enjoyable session ale.

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Clear pale gold beer. Light palate. Light fruity hop, no bitterness. A hint of sulphur that seems to plague so many Golden Ales. Light sweet orange and citrus. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in April 1999. Handpull dispense. Clear straw in colour with a thin white head. Fruity citrus aroma and thin clean mouthfeel. Pale malts give a citric fuit base with hints of lemon peel and grapefruit evident. Aromatic floral notes from the hops, giving a metallic tang to the aftertaste. Good bitter sweet balance in the finish. An excellent summer session golden ale.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Sweetish fruity bitter. Nice malts. Long finish - fruity hops. Doesn’t stand proud amongst the best stuff I’ve had today (golden ale and bitter boredom...) but certainly an adequate and drinkable golden ale.
