Cask @ Urban Tap House, Cardiff. Dark gold with a big creamy head. Aroma is a bit shy but comes out eventually: lemon and birchwood with a bit of autumn leaves. The Goldings really come out in the aroma. Moreish taste of bittersweet followed by an almost vegetable umami. Tasty. Nice full body for a golden cask ale. Everards, Charlie Wells, GK et al: thus us how you do it.

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

Beersiveknown (2979) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 tried dry hopped with sunrise at Factoberfest 2011.Sunrise gave a good blank slate on which the hop could work its magic with grassy malt and caramel sweetness being taken over by the dry hoppiness and peach of the galaxy Cask at grain barge. Mid brown with Fruity malt, medium carbonation.

Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Three Tuns, Bristol, 28.01.12 Pours gold edging towards amber with a white head, excellent clarity. Nice beer with decent hoppy overtones, fruity and uncomplicated, but strikes me as being more of a pleasant session beer than something that I could wax lyrical over. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

BeerViking (2470) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Cask/gravity at last weekend?s Kingston beer festival. Hops and apricots on the nose, lots of hop bitterness, a very nice beer though the body is perhaps a bit one-dimensional. Re-rated on the Grain Barge in Bristol, one point more for a little more fruit and dryness in the body.

[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]

imdownthepub (10235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding, Oxford. Gold with white head. Fruity, peach, apricot, sweetish golden ale. A little thin on the palate with a pronounced bready character. Some yeasty, slightly tinny hints. Juicy finish. It’s fine.
