Towey1989 (730) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of light toffee, some butter, slight apple, orange and maybe subtle honey. Taste is similar of light toffee, some butter, orange, slight grapefruit, honey, apple and dry biscuit. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A dry, biscuity finish. An inoffensive golden ale, slightly buttery. Some nice fruit and citrus flavours though.

AshtonMcCobb (4078) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
On cask at the Green Dragon. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - creamy toffee and light biscuit. Taste - tangy toffee and more biscuits. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - a solid bitter. Didnít think it was a golden ale.

Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 2nd June 2015. Copper with a disappearing off-white laceless foam. Malty aroma with fruity hops. Very malty in-mouth with plenty of caramel and a little nuttiness - hazelnut. Malty and nutty finish. Light bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.

jjsint (1469) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Fuzzy yellow-orange beer, not all that much to it. Bitter-sour taste, a bit of honey follows on with a bitter finish.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Cask at Golden Retriever, Wokingham. On during their beer festival. Pleasant enough light, slightly hoppy sessions beer. Nothing remarkable.

northropfrye (2814) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
Pale, a touch of hop, light and refreshing, good in summer as advertised, but nothing too interesting.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Floral hops and biscuit-y malt angles lead to leafy hop bitterness in this predictable but nonetheless very friendly Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the bright honey gold.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-All flavours are clearly expressed.
-Flavor dosage is meant for long evenings of conversation, not high impact sips.
-Malts are nicely developed, as in every Bath Ales brew Iíve had.

On cask at The Salamander, Bath

larsniclas (6146) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013
Draught at Wargrave Arms Golden with a bubbly head. A lot of buttery toffee in the aroma. Light to medium body and bitterness. Toffee in the favour aswell.

jackl (5823) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Cask @ The North Pole. Pours clear light amber with a small white head. The nose is light apricot, some sweet baked bread, mild grain. Simple. The taste is summer fruits, light citrus, sweet pale malt. Mild bitter finish. Light body, soft carb. Decent. A nice, simple beer. Not taxing. Would be good with food etc.
