Bottle. Rich gold colour. Soft in the mouth with rich fruity flavours and what tasted like goldings and cascade hops. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another 50 cl bottle in my favourite english pub. Aroma: A lot of aromatic hops then also some wine and honey aromas. Appearance: Golden and clear with stable white head. Flavor and Palate: The hops and hence also some bitterness dominate this beer. Sweetness is only behind these values. It is very nicely balanced and not much carbonated. Overall the flower notes make it a beer I like ordering again.

The aroma was old-fashioned treacle tart with a squeeze of lemon. Nice head and lovely gold colour. Sweetness(perhaps raspberry) in the taste merged agreeably into a medium bitter finish.

Bottle, 4.2%. Flowery aroma, perhaps a bit of elderflower. Cloudy yellow colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour is nicely flowery and faintly sweet. Subtle, but good and still flavourful. Good clean bitterness.

Golden with hops dominating. Gentley bitter and slightly thin.Apart from the thinness this is a very presentable golden ale.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Bottle from sainsburys. Label says Arundel Sussex Gold and new logo. Golden beer lovely hop nose, all sorts of citrus flavours and green hop. Stunning. Lemon/lime/strawberry and then hoppy tingling finish. Gorgeous and my type of beer. 949518 4.5/5.0. Clearly I was on smack when I had this beer last time. Yes the hop is still there over a bit of a toasty aroma. Some toffee in the flavour. Some hop on end. Yes quite well balanced and quite drinkable. Failing to see why I went so mental over it last time. It’s a mid 3 at best.

Half pint pulled at GBBF, clear yellow with a large frothy head. A stewed fruits aroma. Sweet honey flavours come through with a good tangy mouthfeel and a sharp finish carrying grapefruit.

[500ml bottle from Maureen & Dave - cheers!] Dirty dark gold with a large foaming white head and slight to moderate carbonation. Decent rich mouthfeel. Peaches up front, straw throughout, and some lemon in the finish. On the dry side, but little bitterness. A decent bitter that exceeded my expectations.
