2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. Golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild saltwater and suplhur along with some resin and that’s about it- Flavour is fruity, floral, citrusy and quite bready to it. Mild sulphury notes in the flavour too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014-07-01. Lightly hazy dark yellow body nice creamy white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, light pale malt. Flavour fairly mild, lightly bitter throughout, lemony touches. Smooth average to light bodied palate seems to suit it but just a touch more carbonation would suit me. Milder than my preference but refreshingly quaffable after a walk. Cask as Golden XPA at The Merchant Bar, Portree.
"What brewery makes the Golden?"
"These are cask ales!"
"Yes, thanks. What *brewery* makes the Golden?"
"This one is made on Skye and this one is from a brewery in Edinburgh."
(Pause...) "... A pint of the Golden please."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sat in The Leather Smithy, Sutton. Lovely surroundings, not sure about the beer. Looks gold with a thin bright white head. Aroma is fruity hops, some pine, caramel, not bad. Flavour is your usual fruity hops and caramel, just a bit boring for me.
