harrisoni (16053) - 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 (4887) - 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

50cl bottle from M&S, Camberley at an ABV of 4%. A pale amber pour with a thin white head; light floral/fruity aroma - perhaps a touch of apricot; crisp body with some fruity malt; and a pleasant bitterness with some lingering spice. Rather pleasant.

Pours golden, clear, thin head and light carbonation. Pleasant strawberry, fruity nose. Light, dry biscuit flavour with burnt caramel, medium bitter finish. Needs more in the taste department but okay.

Cask. Gold with a good creamy off white head. Smells of tinned peaches and carnation milk. Peachy and orange bits in the taste. Nice and light. Yummy.
