Cask @ Six Bells, Cambridge. Perfect gold. Aroma is buttery, and unfortunately slightly possety. Full sweet taste with bitter around the edges. A reasonable golden from our reliable friends in the North.

Better than a basic ale, but not very special. Some sweet and citrus tones, but also a bit watery.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Cask at The Woodman, Durham, £3.30/pint. Enjoyable blonde with more going on that a lot of other beers in the style. Citrus undertones to a biscuity malt base and a crisp, crunchy bitter finish.

kajser27 (1365) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 20, 2015
Golden colored, medium white head. Aroma is malt, biscuit, floral, hay grassy hops. Taste is low to medium sweet caramalt, biscuit, light fruity notes, some citrus, low+ floral and lemongrassy bitterness, dryish. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation. Compared to the standard Black Sheep, this one appeared lighter and less bitter but with more/fresh hop aroma.

Cask (Geldart, Cambridge)
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.

gegwilson (3200) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
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 (5399) - 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 (2344) - 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 (5542) - 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.
