COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Finest quality pale malt carrying choicest west coast American hops to create a beautifully balanced pale ale. The aroma is fragrant, fruity. The flavours are mellow with hints of bubblegum and refreshing grapefruit. The finish is bittersweet, without being cloying.
This is consistently Abbeydale Brewery's biggest selling beer.
First brewed in 1996 it was designed as a premium pale bitter to show drinkers of a very big and old-established brewery's offering just what a beer could taste like... After a bit of name-calling and throwing of stones, it had no trouble in establishing a reputation as the genuine Sheffield Gold Beer. It is now available as a "regular" beer at a number of outlets in and around Sheffield.

A beer for those who like the sweeter taste found it rather sickly after a couple but i am some one who like bitter beers. A beautifully polished appearance and looks good on the bar

Cimbasso (196) - - NOV 20, 2014
Sampled on draught at the John Baird’s Yorkshire Beer Festival. The colour is the palest of pale yellows, and the head is white. Citrus aromas. Light maltiness and very light body with grapefruit flavours from the hops. This is more like a golden ale than a pale ale. Quite refreshing but lacking in body.

Cask in the One Eyed Rat, Ripon. Pours blond with a white head. Some nice grapefruit notes, but it has a pretty mild flavour. Very creamy mouthfeel. OK

A nice Pale Ale. The aroma has fruity, hoppy tones and the flavour has a light fruity, peachy taste.

Alengrin (2355) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Though advertised as a bitter or pale ale, this is a typical new generation English golden ale, with a soft fruity character, smooth and slick mouthfeel, delicate sweet maltiness and nice grassy hop bitter balance in the finish.

Cask @ The Elephant & Castle. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. The nose is lemon, some sugary white bread, light orchard fruits (apricot). The taste is mild citrus, grapefruit, pale malt sweetness, soft herbal hop. Light, smooth body. Overall, a decent golden ale.
