COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Available occasionally on cask as Priors Gold.
A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2005
An orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet fruity and very hoppy, but also slightly dusty - my guess is Goldings has been used. The flavor is sweet fruity with oranges and grapefruit coming thru, but also a dry end - again my guess is Goldings. A really nice thirst quencher - for a Dane, this could be a session beer.

(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, orangey golden with tiny, stale impurities and a small, off-white head. Very citrusy nose. Medium-bodied, incredibly dry and completely dominated by the almost grapefruity hops. Remains dry and bitter in the finish. 300606

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Peppered with dark lumpy bits that soon fall to the bottom. Palate is light with good fine carbonation. Light malts, not much sweetness. Spicy bitter hops. Very mild dried fruits. Semi dry finish, mild bitter linger. Touch of dry malt cream. Okay bitter.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus
Hazy golden color, with a persistent perlage that keeps an irregular half centimeter of thick foam. It has a very good aroma, typical of good English Golden Ales, with hops (quite grassy) and some fruity touch. Medium-light body, dry mouthfeel (mainly because of the strong bitterness), with some dry toffee flavor; the hop has a grassy character; as said, the bitterness is very high, and therefore the final long. Extremely bitter for the style, maybe unbalanced, but pleasant.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
500ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold colour with thick off white head. Attractive initial hop aroma. More grassy hop in the mouth. Good initial sherbert hop up top, but then in the mouth the flavours get a little muddied with then a grassy hop finish. Starts well but tails off as the flavours in the mouth are not in harmony for me.
