Well not much to say here...butter, popcorn, slight skunkiness. This has very little redeeming qualities.

This was pretty much everyone’s least favorite beer of the day but we were just getting started and I was so giddy with anticipation after touring the cellar i drank it down pretty quick. pours golden with soapy head. nose of sweet cheap candy. tastes buttery, sugar, grass, bread, hay, and vanilla. oh well moving on...

GBBF. Light haze on this gold beer. No real head. Light dry crisp palate. A trace of the dreaded Golden Ale affliction - eggs, not too bad. Sharp marmalade hops. Semi dry finish.

Weefannybaws (89) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Pint in the Bull Inn, Paisley. Pours a lovely golden colour. Quite a peppery taste to begin with. Fades to a lightly spiced floral after-taste. Drinkable, but probably wouldn’t buy again
