Cask: Status uncertain. Cold filtered in bottles.
A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

My Bottom Line:
This quenching Golden Ale projects peppery and citrusy hops onto wet straw and honey before herbal hop bitterness balances everything out.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear gold.
-The flavour profile is well structured and balanced.
-Drinkability is optimal; I somehow believe this would have been better, more polished, on cask.
-The hop character is bright and delicate.

Golden without a head. Has a tasty grainy biscuit flavour, its pale ale tag on the label is more evident in its fruity nose.

Aroma: Hay, grass and faint citrus.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Very light visible carbonation. Light lacing marks.

Taste: Very clean and mild. Flavours of freshly cut grass, earth and pear.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle.

Overall: Not the most flavoursome and it’s quite thin - like a cross between a Golden Ale and a Lager.

Pleasant floral aroma, lightly hopped with some citrus and grapefruit. Enjoyable session beer, could be more strongly hopped.

Like a lager with flavour. Guess that’s what golden ale is. Not my usual style - I was drawn by the ’pale’ in ’golden pale ale’. Light to drink. Quite refreshing. Very mild in taste - some citrus and hops. Not bad

jmgreenuk (5388) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Connolly’s Wines, Solihull. Poured a slightly hazy light yellow colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is malty leading to a medium bitter flavour with a big malty palate which sticks around in the bitter aftertaste. It’s a pleasant ale, but a little bland and quickly became boring.
