Cask at the Grain Barge, Bristol. Supped, appropriately, on the upper deck of this pub on a boat, in the beating sun, whilst playing dominoes. A slightly plain Golden this, with cornfield hops and a smidge of cheese.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Very honey like aroma and smooth as silk on the palate. Flavour has loads of lemon taste making the overall effect a bit like throat sweets. But this is no bad thing. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light golden amber, clear, bubbly white head
Aroma - light pale golden malts...slight aroma
Taste - soft citrus hops, light pale bit fruity malt, refreshing, easy going
Palate - soft carb, thinnish body, a little sticky. Finish as main flavour, bit dry, fairly bitter soft hop
Overall - OK golden ale - fairly standard stuff

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump White Swan Leeds 14/08/12. A golden coloured beer with a tight white head and lacing. A crisp biscuity aroma. Decent fruity tastes. Biscuity malts. Served too cold and over sparkled. I think there’s a nice fruity beer trying to get out of this.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Golden pour, nice white head. Looks every inch the standard golden ale. Mild bitterness until the finish. Straw. Some pear fruit. Good balance. Enjoyable [12072012]
