Golden Seahawk, formerly known as Golden Eagle, became a regular brew in Summer 2001 and has rapidly become a firm favourite with local drinkers. Seahawk is traditionally brewed with Devon pale and crystal malted barley which gives the beer its characteristic bright golden colour. Complemented by carefully selected Goldings, Challenger and Styrian hops, provide a fragrant aroma with a background of honey flavour offering a fruit filled smooth finish.

Bottle: the last of the Cotleigh gift pack I got for Christmas. this beer is the epitome of a souless ,shitty ,low boost brown . it’s skunky as hell , relentless sunk nuance . if u put this ale cask conditioned it would at least lose the skunk notes from the clear bottle . notes suggest brown bread , caramel, dusty yeast , peppery citrus hops , light vanilla.... and skunk up the ass. . Cotleigh are very hit and miss as a brewery.

500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch, lemon. Taste is light lemon and buttery malt. Astringent finish.

Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, slight peach, subtle biscuit, a little honey and floral hops. Taste of lemon, peach, sugar, some biscuit, subtle honey and floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sugary sweet finish with subtle floral hop bitterness. A sweet beer with sugar, yeast and honey quite dominant over the citrus and floral hop. Not my kind of beer.

Strong hoppy aroma. Oddly yellow lime appearance. Quite hoppy tasting. Quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I found it very refreshing and I especially liked the colour. Its quite light and smooth tasting and is quite drinkable. I could happily drink it all night. It has a slight zestiness, although could be stronger. I would class it as being a standard beer. And I would much rather drink it to Badger Tangle Foot or Ringwood Breweries 49er.

Golden color with a terribly weak foam. Boring English bitter that would succeed better on tap.

Cask at the Kings Tun JDW, very lively so no chance of a full measure, faint notes of yeast, honey and peach on the nose, body is fruity but sulphurous. Not great.

Cask in the Sun Inn, Dent. Amber with a white head. A fair mix of malt a hop flavours. Some caramel and green fruit. Drinkable, but nothing more.

Clear glass bottle. Golden with a thin head. Maintains a pleasant fruit character through and through with a lingering aftertaste.
