2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From mad about Real Ale 5 pack. Still gold with a loose white halo. Butter, pastry, honey and hawthorn aroma. Dank privet hop, a brackish eddy of tears, wet hedges, Werthers, honey sweetness, lingering dough and biscuit. Dull, old fashioned and tired. And the beer too.

500ml bottle at Tylney Hall, nr Hook. Clear orange, lightly sparkling, small white head. The overall impression is more of a lager than a golden ale - I’m surprised to see that this is top-fermented. It’s malty with a touch of metal.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml brown bottle. Golden pour with a small creamy white cap. A few spots of lace here and there but not much lacing. Light nose with faint citrus. Taste is rather light, mild grainy malts, touch of citrus at the end. Aftertaste has a slight citrus note and some grain. Overall quite a light brew that actually feels a bit washed out and flat on the tongue.

Bright gold with a pure white head. The nose is mild and lightly grassy with light citrus hops and malty sweetness. Mild blonde hoppiness with a hint of grass and lemon. Very basic beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a bright golden color with a finger of white head that leaves spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some citrus and grains. Taste is a grassy and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruit and malty sweetness. A decent blonde ale, but nothing special.

Certainly looks the part, sparkling gold and very crystal clear. Not sure about the bottle’s claim to using European & American aroma hops, as it’s a bit lacking in that department. Taste-wise, it puts me in mind of continental lagers, but without the harshness that these can bring. As others have mentioned, lime citrus and biscuit characteristics are apparent, a touch sulphury in the finish. Sessionable.

50cl bottle bought in Hartney Wintney. Hazy straw with a billowing white head; weisbier style yeasty aroma; similar flavour with a hint of banana; the finish is dry and lightly spicy. More a Weisbier than a Golden Ale, but very drinkable nonetheless.
