(Cask, Charlies, Copenhagen) - Light golden in colour. Minty, flowery nose. Easy drinkable with a mint, apple and lemony palate. - Not bad....

Appearance pale. Nice aroma taste okay if a little uninspiring. At second pint surprisingly strong. More bitter on palate than I first thought. Good session beer.

Quite why this is a bitter and not a golden ale is beyond me. I know itís quite a low gravity ale but it is still on the thin side of average for its strength. Drinkable but nothing really stands out and hits you. On the other hand could be one of those cask ales that on their day can exceed all expectations. Who knows. The pint I had resembled Fullerís Discovery which I donít rate as one of their better beers. Will give it another shot one day.

jamesie1857 (1492) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
On cask at Burton Bridge Inn - Light straw body, lacing white head. Aroma is a mild, fruity malt, with a little citrus in the background. Flavour is a lovely malt, with hints of caramel apples. Light bodied, very well balanced, beautifully bitter, a great session beer this one.

prawlie (1206) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell - old notes. Gold with a reasonable head, light aroma with a hint of citrus. Very plain tasting, I struggled to pick out the flavours. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Dry and very mildly fruity. Missable.

Poured clear golden with a small, frothy white head. Aroma of citrus and sofy malt. Medium body, flavour of bitter sweetness.

Martin243 (814) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Honey aroma, cereal flavour, bitter hop finish. Drinkable but uninspiring

Cask at the moon under water Watford. Vinegar aroma. Golden colour long lasting white head. A tale malt and vinegar. Absolutely dreadful. Iím sending this one back.

Iíd say this is more of a golden/blonde ale. Taste is uninspiring and bland, not bad though
