A refreshing golden bitter brimming with character…not to mention citrus hops and fruit. Made with 100% Maris Otter malt, and brewed using a single variety hop…English Fuggles. A malty fresh vitality gives way to a full bittersweet finish…pure Gold!

Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear orange golden "apple juice" color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, a slightly hoppy fruitiness, a slight fruity bitterness. Decently balanced actually, even though I don’t really like it. Average body and carbonation. Ok beer.

Japalo (1171) - DENMARK - JUL 23, 2014
Cask@The ale house, Bath. Haze dark golden. Half finger dense foam. Some fizz. Earthy grassy dusty. It must be dry hop with the english fuggle! Dry sweet. Not bad.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford. Poured a rather hazy golden colour, with a dense white head and excellent lacing. Soft fruit aroma, with some perfume and straw. Initial flavours of peal, melon and grain. Finish was caramel, lemon zest and a metallic edge.

ralphdot (983) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
4.4% gold to amber colour (not surprising) with a thin head, called a bitter but more like a tasty lager.

dynamiteninja (1508) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
Cask, pub at Bristol Temple Meads railway station. Gold body, thin white head. Nose is hops, some citrus, some fruit. Bitter. Dry finish. Just another generic UK cask golden ale.

Bog standard best bitter. Quite sweet. Tastes a bit under powered after drinking strong beers but basically fine.

Plain and simple, sure and steady. Decent but unexciting pint. Flavours gentle hops and medium bitterness.

A tasty beer to appreciate with a good group of friends in a pub while the rain pours outside.

BlackHaddock (3760) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
Hand-pulled pint in the excellent ’Railway Buildings’ on Codsall railway station: 17 Nov 2012. Cracking looking beer: bright body of golden amber colour with a good head that stayed the distance as the beer level slid down my UK sleeve glass. The aroma was thin and although there was a mini-blend of malt and hop notes there wasn’t enough to pick out any clear smells to pontificate about. The taste is a well balanced mix of semi-sweet maltiness and a woody, nutty feel with a mild hop bitterness under the surface at all times and rising towards the end of each sip. Pleased I found a cask version: thought it might be better than the bottled one and I was right.
