[Cask conditioned] Golden coloured. Quite boring and rather thin with light fruity notes. It tastes almost like a sweet cider.

Tasted this in the Lord Nelson, Southwold. Hand pump dispense. Crystall clear gold amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight citric tang in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and slight lacing. Pale malts give a juicy citric fruit base with lemon rind evident. Floral hop resins give a tart bitter bite in the aftertaste. Finish is rather dry and hoppy. An ok golden ale, perfect on warm summer days.

Aug 2006: I don’t like doing this, but it has to be said.
I think this beer is produced by Adnams (who’s other beers I love)to try and get lager drinkers away from cold tasteless, colourless lager. To do this, they have produced a Real Ale which is almost colourless and tasteless.
It is straw blond in colour and looks from a distance like a lager, having a white head also, so the advertising man is happy!. It just does nothing for me, there is no aroma, taste or anything else which would let you know it was a beer from Adnams.
It is only produced in the summer, when Southwold is full of tourists and the Londoners who have bought half of the village as second homes, maybe they drink it.

Cask. Yellow beer with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a light fruityness. Malty and grainy flavor, boring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Duke of Wellington, Waterloo. Nose of hops and some metal. Taste is weak and thin, some malt and hops but the metallic taste is a bit much for me. FInishes with a long dry note.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On cask in England. Golden appearance with a very stale hop smell. The flavor had a metallic and astringent profile to it. Some bitterness in the end, but hard to choke down.
