Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Nice clean, crisp and hoppy aroma. Tastes about the same: clean, crisp, hoppy, softly bitter. Suitable carbonation and body. Lovely session beer!

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Poured clear, golden amber in colour with a thick, frothy white head leaving the glass well laced. Floral, caramel sweetness and citric aromas. Hoppy, fruity flavour with a crisp, sharp bitterness. Good tasting, well made beer.

Bammers54 (86) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
from bottle, a really good pale ale, very assessable, moreish, like a session beer, but with lovely complexity and fruity taste from beginning to end. I really like this pale ale would definitely buy again

Black Country Beano. Cask in the Great Western. Clear bright gold beer, tiny white head. Light palate, airy. Fine carbonation. Good orange peel hops over light mellow malt. Light finish. Very good marmalade here! Tastes like a Golden. Looks like too.
