A pale, golden quaffing ale with excellent flavours for its strength. Pleasingly hoppy throughout without being aggressive and also possessing of a fine aroma. The finish is dry with a small twist of sweetness at the end.

On tap somwhere! Pale gold beer. Pleasant sweet hop nose. Light soft semi dry palate. Nice light hops - a little peach, a trace of orange and grapefruit. Finishes dry. Pleasant.

will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Pale and ever so slightly hazy (from the cask). Well balanced beer with a sweet malty aroma, a refreshing bitterness and a biscuity citrussy aftertaste. Good for quenching the thirst.

kwik-lime (1633) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at Harp’s, just off The Strand and Trafalgar Square. An absolutely fantastic example of the golden ale style. Strong hop character with just the right amount of bitterness, and excellent citrus notes in both the taste and the aroma. A really good beer.

Vignale (3090) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2011
Drucken på Hawkley Inn. En bra golden ale som saknar lite av den fina humle som finns i quivern.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2011
Cask. Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly spicy with a light crackery pale malt aroma. There is a little bit of soft peppery character with a touch of light crackery malt. Light-bodied with a touch of Goldings spiciness. Lovely.

sm89walt (1914) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Pale gold with a mild haze and a small though lasting bubbly white head. Quite toasty, zesty & dryish with good English hop notes. Finishes quite grassy but not before some sweet hops and a citric bitterness. Short to medium length finish, soft to medium carbonation & a light but firm body.

Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton, UK on 30 August 2010. Gold with thin white head. Light, hoppy, touch of fruit and easy drinking. Light to watery mouthfeel. Fairly subtle flavours but a refreshing quench on a warm August evening.

fishter (2) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2010 does not count
A straw coloured, light bitter. Refreshing and moreish. This 2-pint take-out is a bit flat, but still tasty.
