Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Comes as "Tesco Finest Golden Ale". Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Typical skewed British hop aroma - God what a mess. Medium body, some lightly sweet fruit but also sulphur and a strange tang. Not bad - just British. Dry, hoppy finish. 111009

Bottle from Tesco. Pours clear amber tan with a decent sized white head. Nose is of sweet malts and fruity hops. Noticeably fruity on the tongue with a nice crisp hop bitterness to the finish. Smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Nice.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
mixture of malt and hops but a very mild aroma sweet smelling. Certainly is golden but slightly cloudy with a large off white head, some lacing on the glass. Subtle flavour, but can’t put my finger on it, nice though not like others i’ve tried lately that are too lagerish. Also tasted this as tesco golden ale but the tesco one was slightly more perfumed and didn’t rate as high. They should be put on as seperate beers as they were different.

I sampeld this under the name of Tesco’s Finest Ale and it’s pretty good. Sweet and caramel in taste, but a lovely amber colour. Smooth and fruity - very drinkable.
