jamesie1857 (1374) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
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 (2500) - 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 (665) - 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 (9306) - 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.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Had this is 2013, go figure. Golden, thin head, fruity, honeyish hop character. Fresh, with a splash of sticky pale malts to complement the clementine hops.

jjsint (747) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Cask @ The Cannon, Newport Pagnell. Light gold. Smells of ammonia (read: cat piss). Some nice tropical fruit in the background. Not sure this beer is at its best. Taste is saccharin sweet but has a balancing bitter finish. Not good.

Bree Louise. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light and smooth. Very modest carbonation in the light semi dry palate. Distinct honey and a little ripe orange. Light dry finish. Nice tasting beer but really needs a bit more decent carbonation.
