COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - June & July.

Golden Ale - a refreshing honey toned, golden ale.
Originally brewed in summer 2009 as Summer Gold, it was subsequently selected by J.D. Wetherspoon’s to feature in their April 2010 Beer Festival when the name was changed to Brigantia.
A honey toned, refreshing, hoppy, golden ale with gorgeous aromas of tropical fruit and grapefruit sharpness offset by hints of melon and pineapple; the result of large quantities of German, Brewers Gold hops.

imdownthepub (10654) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with slight white head. If there are large quantities of German hops, I missed them in the sweetness, thick and honeyed. Some peachy fruitiness, soft and fleshy then just the hint of hops in the close. Average really.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2010
Cask at Pilgrim’s Progress (JDW), Bedford, in Spoons Real Ale Festival ’10. Pale gold. Sherbet lemon aroma. Sweet lemony taste and a sharp bitter finish. Served too warm. I don’t think Brigit, goddess of the Celts, would recognise this substance as beer, but it was quite drinkable.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2010
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Pale straw with a thin white head; floral aroma; light body, traces of honey without being too sweet; then crisp Bavarian hops to finish. Refreshing.
