swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, - JAN 17, 2013
bottle, light hoppy and fruity but some alien strange aroma as well, pale, clear, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly to medium bitter, medium body, average carbonation, very average golden ale I would say

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a pale golden colour, with a white head that disappeared and visible force carbonation. Very light aroma of dried fruit, malt and some plasticy notes. Similar flavours, with some synthetic fruit syrup, straw and grain. Finish was copper, lemon peal and hay.

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2014
Light ruby, no real head after pouring. Swift malt and peachy/sweet aromas. Initially decent enough, metally malt before drying out to more of that dank peachyness. Sweet earnest malts. Carbonation flys past to begin but fades quickly. Lifeless finish, watery and more metally. Not the worst but not the easiest to get through.

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2013
Weak orange yellow colour with thin white head. Not much in way of aroma. Slightly nutty and malty. All malt in flavour with only a very slight hoppiness. Drinkable but not earth shattering.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Bottled 09/02/13. A dehydrated urine coloured beer with no head. Sweet and apply with cardboard aplenty from the pasteurization. A bit of nuttiness in the nose is the only saving grace. Really poor.

ianwelby (1042) - SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a frothy head that soon reduces to a film. A mild but promisingly balanced aroma just means disappointment because there isn’t a lot of flavour and it certainly wouldn’t go with any strong-tasting food. Not undrinkable, just bland.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch (bought at Aldi UK). Light ruby in colour, low head, low carbonation. Sweetish taste of caramel, light honey and grass. Almost no bitterness. Drinkable but now new experience.

MichaelAwesome (6388) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. An easy and bit sweetish ale. Very easy drink but just a few malt aromas. Still a very nice one.

ManVsBeer (8296) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Lively, carbonated golden ale with no head and not much flavour, but palatable. Has a lager type nose.

johndoughty (4874) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. At one point Batemans were one of my favourite breweries. When beers were uniformly gassy or bland and often both they stood out like a beacon. Recently I have been disappointed with some of their offerings and this is the most disappointing.It came in a clear bottle-not a good start.Small head and a weak insipid body. Slight bitterness but otherwise very little flavour. This would never win gold even if it was the only entry.
