Cask; Regular.
A rich golden coloured smooth premium ale. Brewed with a full malt mash, this beer has a robust malty palate and well-balanced steely bitterness producing a massive complexity of flavours. A former Champion Premium Beer of Britain.

Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Quite sweet, persistent head. A bit acidic fruitiness that compliments the general impression. Good balance. Hay like aftertaste.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Rather soft, and slightly bland. I expected more for the abv. Smooth, bubbly and milkshake style mouthfeel. I guess this is meant to be a Golden (?), but doesn’t have the citric kick or discernible hop feeling.

imdownthepub (10860) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2004
Cask Conditioned at Cherwell Beer Festival, Bodicote, Oxon. Orange Gold with bubbly head. Fruity hoppy bitter with plenty of character with an acidic orange back flavour. Refreshing and light though perhaps flabby on the finish.

omhper (20325) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2003
Sampled cask conditioned at The Rover, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Golden coloured and near clear. Sulphury, fruity, appley, flowery nose. Sweet, rather malty and well hopped. The fruitiness is dominating.
