a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

chinchill (4201) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2016
From a cask at the Drovers Inn in the Scottish Highlands. Golden body with excellent clarity and lacing with a terrific, creamy head. Mild aroma dominated by sweet malts. Hops slightly dominate the malts in the mildly bitter flavor. Excellent soft mouthfeel.

Taboada (881) - Compostela (Galiza), - AUG 18, 2016
Cask tasted at the Ensign Ewart, Edinburgh on the August 10th 2016. Golden to amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma of apples, light malty and unripe fruit. Apple taste, sour notes, very light hoppy. Flat carbonation and light aftertaste. Next one please!

The_Osprey (5930) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys London as Caledonian Deuchars IPA, 3.8%. Light amber orange, still and clear with a small ring of white foam. Aroma is thin apple, papery, touch of soap, lemonade shandy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is apple, soft malt, white bread and toasted plain crumpet, some shandy, musty damp flannel finish. Just ok. Could drink pints reluctantly.

daje (3982) - NORWAY - APR 22, 2016
Cask at Rose Street Brewery Edinburgh, june 16th 2015. Hazy bright golden body with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine, grass and flowers. Taste has some spicy yeast esters, citrus fruit and a dry bitterness. Good thirst quencher.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Pint at Fiddler’s Arms, Edinburgh. No real aroma to speak of, slight grassiness. Flat but with good white creamy head. Taste slightly fruity and sweet, lacking bitterness.

Vladivostok (432) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016
No aroma to speak of and only its name and history keep it from being classed as a golden ale. Pleasant on the palate and not in the least bit sweet, the over-riding flavour is of freshly baked bread. Surprisingly bitter finish. Very drinkable.
