The Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Summer Beer Fest. Clear gold beer, little bubbly white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Clean malt, not grainy. Nice Apollo hops. Medium strength. Citrus, a little marmalade and a trace of lemon. Dry finish with a marmalade bitter linger. Decent and drinkable.

Cask, CBC, brixton. Clear, deep gold colour with white fairly creamy head. Honey, biscuity sweet malt aroma. Some hops too but not as much as expected. Sweet toasted bread malt taste, honey again and fruit hops followed by some citrus bitterness. Well balanced and pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle) Crystal clear, light gold. Pours thick, white head, diminishing, but lasting. Mid-light carbonation. Aroma - Intense, spicy, american hops; grapefruit and a fairly strong tropical aroma; lychees! (yum!), and a sweet, bready/biscuity malt: Nice, balanced, sweet and fruity aroma, fairly strong. A pretty creamy body for this strength, quite oily too, bit of light carb on the tongue and lips. Good tropical and spicy hop flavours, sweet malt, with a slightly dry, refreshing finish. Nice balance, though just a tad sweet (but pleasant). Very drinkable, without compromising on flavour - Crouch Vale seem to be pretty good at this with their golden ales and bitters.

Cask @ the Wharf, Aalborg. Clear light amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and rather hoppy - peach and grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. Fantastic for such a low ABV. 110212

Bottle at home. Actually got this Christmas Eve as a present but have only just got around to opening it. It pours a wonderful light amber with golden edges and a billowing cloud of an off-white head caused by the big clump of least from the bottle conditioning. This stays like a fluffy crouton down the whole glass creating some wonderful lacing. I let the yeast slip into the glass by accident and it went straight to the bottom without spoiling the clarity of the beer. There’s a rush of grapefruit, grapefruit peel and lime in the aroma but also the faintest whisper of yeast. A gorgeous but subtle wave of light grapefruit and lime then washes across the tongue tingling the tastebuds everso slightly. This leaves a dry sweetness without much bitterness and disappears gradually and sofly. A light and refreshing Golden Ale.
