Very light haze on this paleish gold beer. Bubbly white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light clean malts, light floralness. Very light citrus. A mild floral sweetness runs throughout. Crisp finish. It’s all very light and fluffy, but it works! Refreshing,

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
500ml bottle from a farm shop near Scarborough, on recommendation of the butcher in said farm shop. Pours clear gold with minimal bubbly head. No discernible aroma. Taste is bland, unremarkable and weak with very light fruits.

Sad24 (138) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Fine but not particually distinctive. Very main stream, lacks a hoppy or fruity taste but perfectly drinkable

Cask - golden with a creamy white head; good lacing and retention. Aroma of grass, fruit, malt and a hint of smoke. Taste is fruits with some spice and a bitter end.

Consistently good wether in bottles or from the barrel. Really well balanced and refreshing without being at all citrusy. A light hoppy beer of choice for me.

AdiBeer (1494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Aroma: light malts, hay, straw. Appearance: light pale clear gold, medium creamy white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: light bitters intensify, light body, somewhat dry towards the average-long finish. Overall: OK Golden Ale, bit boring. Pint at The Elleray, Windermere.
