COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden ale is reminiscent of the striking sunsets that can be seen from Belhaven Bay. With its refreshing citrus taste balanced against clean floral tones, this ale is certainly one to tempt the palate. .

Light amber, clear, thin white head
Aroma - pale hay malt, grainy, bit vegetal, metallic
Taste - light sweet malts, hint of hay, bit metallic, touch of bitter yeast, not good
Palate - thin body, bit oily. Finish of soft bitter grain, dull flat finish
Overall - Well this was poor when I had it, maybe not in good condition..no citrus or floral tones at all

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Port Mahon, Oxford 14.05.12 Gold with a white head, quite a different beast from the Golden Best (Timmy Taylors) which I am also drinking in this pub this evening. There is a fruity, juicy twang but with a little biscuity flavour. Good but not great, though kept in very decent nick.. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask @ The Lismore. Golden amber colour, not much head. Mild malty aroma. Grapefruit flavour, bitter aftertaste. A bit watery. A new but average golden ale.
