COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A fine traditional ale with a hint of summer sweetness.
A light, golden coloured refreshing ale made using finest pale crushed malt, the dwarf variety hop First Gold and local Yorkshire Honey. This provides a well-balanced hoppy beer with a pleasant honey aftertaste.
Honey Gold can be enjoyed at any time of year but on a hot summers' day it's the bees knees! 4.2%ABV

fonefan (34443) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle 50cl. @ home.
Unclear light to medium yellow orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Quit lively beer out of the bottle all over the tabel ;o( Aroma is light to moderate malty, honey, citrus, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet, light acidic and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20090304]

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Extremely light looking beer with a fluffy pure white head. Aroma: Citric with hoppy notes, pretty summery with some green grassy smells. Exceedingly fizzy with a very well rounded flavour with the honey coming through late on. It begins tiggly and bitter with some caramel notes and mellows right down through a delicious maltiness to a nutty, honey finish. I couldn’t drink it all night but i agree with the bottle in that on a summers day it would be grand (if it were less carbonated).

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle, 4.2%. Fruity and slightly sweet flavour. Almost clear pale yellow colour, small white head. The flavour is quite clean with a hint of honey. Not the sweetness from honey, but the flavour. One of the more successful of the honey beers i have had.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2008

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. A very average beer. A pleasant enough gold colour with a fluffy white head which faded away to a thin but persistent coating and left a good lacing. A light aroma with notes of hay and apples. On the palate, it is citric and refreshing, but without any real defining characteristics. The honey is almost unnoticeable, although it does leave a residual sweetness in the finish. Not a bad drop, but I wouldn’t buy it again unless nothing better was available.
