Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - SEP 7, 2014
There is only a 2012 entry in Ratebeer, although this beer certainly wasn’t brewed two years ago. Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Yellowy orange, clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is toned down citrus. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth. Taste is light biscuity malt, soft breathy bitterness, semisweet citrus, long finish. Lovely, well balanced and very drinkable. An almost perfect example of the style.

On cask at Tividale FC Clubhouse - Straw coloured body with a thin white head. Citrus aroma, a bit floral. A light lemony citrus flavour with a grainy body; the a light and short grapefruit bitterness to finish. Quite pleasant.

AshtonMcCobb (2574) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
On cask at the Wheatsheaf in Wetheral. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lovely lemon and gentle pale malt. Taste - lemon and grapefruit with just enough pale malt to give balance. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry but balanced finish. Overall - great golden ale.

Mr_Pink_152 (711) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
On cask at the wicked witch near Stamford. Golden colour, thin white head. Aroma has citrus hop. Taste is light hop and sweetish malt flavour. But a bit nothingy.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki) - is this 2011 or 2012?
Refreshing light fruity aroma, supermarket own-brand fruit juice. Pale, brief loose head. Taste like a wimpy version of the aroma. Thin flat watery palate. Just some sweet soft grains, and really cheap indistinguishable fruit juice mix. Meh. Classic why-do-they-bother golden ale.

Cask at Minster Inn. Pours pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of honey and orange. Taste is more of the same. OK.
