Quite a nice golden with a slight honey aroma, decent body and gentle hop rate. I am struggling to come up with new descriptions for the plethora of golden ales which are currently hitting the market. Pleasant but not one to pick out in a blind tasting.

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Dark golden in colour with a decent sized frothy white head. Honey sweetness and floral aromas linger. Nicely hopped bitterness comes through. Subtle malts, a slight earthiness and sweetness make a good tasting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Clear slightly rusty orange color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, bitter, lightly butter. Sometimes a whiff of solid hops comes by, but it’s gone quite quick. Lingering bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Gold with white head. Weetabix type malt note, biscuity, grainy with a limited earthy hop note. A little thin on the palate, it comes over as a little bland. O.k but not memorable.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Espy. Pours clear gold with white head like a generic cask ale. Smells of feet. Taste is a chore. A very poor cask ale.

Funny bubblegum like flavour, too sweet for me but overall fairly drinkable - probably wouldn’t have more than one
