Cask conditioned at Spooners Bar, Porthmadog, Gwynned, Wales. Gold with white head. This is quite a light, malty beer,fruity sweet, thinnish palate. It is simple, perhaps a light biscuit note. It’s okay.

Bottle, thanks Wolff. Hazy light orange with a white head. Soft and easy to drink with grass, citrus and some hints of perfume. Also some bread and caramel. The finish was bitter.

BeerViking (4193) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle from the Co-op, pours orange-brown with almost no head and light aromas of caramelised citrus, floral perfume and a little earth. Slightly metallic bitterness overpowers a biscuity malt body. Distant lemon and spice notes.

From a bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with very soft carbonation. Malt, peach and grass in the aroma, and also in the taste. Nice grassy bitterness, and a long, bitter finish. A tasty golden ale.

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours hazy gold colour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, hops and grass. Taste is following the nose very closely - citrus, hops and some grassy notes. Medium body with soft carbonation and a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced and smooth, would consume it as a session ale any time.

harrisoni (17336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear gold with a bit of a haze with lasting white head. Good hoppy aroma, good hops on the finish, rather a decent tasting golden ale I thought, went with the piri piri chicken breasts quite well. A little light pink grapefruit. Good lively hops throughout.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
500ml bottle at home as ’Conwy Clogwyn Gold’, 4%, BB Aug 2016. Dark yellow, hazy, lightly sparkling, foamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is light citrus, orange squash, dough and bread in the background, a little metallic. Body is rounded, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bread-forward, light citrus, metallic, peppery bitterness. Quite spicy and bitter for the style. Balanced, drinkable. Decent stuff. I imagine I’d like the cask version.

Bottle from Waitrose, Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Saturday 2nd January 2016 Pours gold in colour with a slim bubbly white head. A little hoppier than I expected and a touch fruity. Not bad at all. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
