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.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at White Cliffs Beer Festival, February 2006. Pale straw/gold colour. Soft, herbaceous and grassy. The aroma is stronger than the flavour. Light mouthfeel, slightly lacking in grip. If its going for a golden ale style, it doesn’t really have enough aromatic character. If its going for a bitter style, it doesn’t really have enough bitterness. That’s not to say I disliked it, it just seemed a bit undecided about what it was trying to achieve.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2006
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pale amber, rich creamy head. Oily orangey hop aroma. Resiny, orangey fflavour with undertones of pine-apples and paint. Long bitter finish. I like it!

Svesse (6734) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2006
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Colour is pale amber. Nose is fruity and quite sweet with hints of apricots. Fruity, dry taste with hints of apricots. Dry and bitter hops in the finish, with a metallic dryness. Refreshing and very drinkable.

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

DanielBrown (4028) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2006
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 (11080) - 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 (20552) - 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.
