Beautiful honey in the aroma. Taste too. Classic bitter. Great drinkability. Soft palate, carbonation low. Refreshing. Nice little bitter bite at the end. Lovely characterful golden ale.

Cask in the Three Fiddles, Guisborough. A golden ale with a white head. Quite sharp citrus flavour. I strongly suspect this was a little past its best. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable. Iím sure.Iíll have another opportunity to try it again, but i doubt it will be much better.

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2015
Golden light hazy. Very moderate aroma, herbal hops, sweet pale malts. Taste is more expressive, more so than expected for the brewer and style. Nice bitterness. Good brew actually! (Cask at Leeds airport bar)

niquillis (1913) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
On cask at Black Lion, Consall Forge. Pours golden with white head. Quite citrussy and more much flavour than most Black Sheep ales. Decent golden.

SilkTork (5432) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
The Avenue, Southampton. Crisp and fragrant with a twiggy hop finish. Some tropical fruit, but this is more a pale bitter than a golden summer ale.

Cask at some working mens club in Stockport watching my Dad do a gig. Clear golden brown with thick creamy off white head. Malty caramel aroma, some floral hops. Flavour is similar. Not bad actually but not very me.
