COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used in the recipe to bring the delicate hop flavours & aroma to the fore. The use of Cascade gives a pleasing citrus aroma. Finest pale Maris Otter malt has been blended with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour and results in a satisfying pint.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of hops, toffee and caramel malt. Typical English taste of Goldings but with a fresh note of Cascade.

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Large fluffy white head and a golden body. Nose has caramel notes and a light touch of fruit. In the mouth, more caramel, but bags more fruitiness. Tangerine and light lemon. Nothing too radical here, but a really nice solid sup-per with a strong sweet finish.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Amber beer with strong white head. The aroma is lightly malty, and the flavour is bitter with caramel maltyness. Overall a reasonable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from a Co-Op in Peterborough, Cambs. Orange gold with thin head. Sharp, slightly tinny flavour initially with the general CO2 driven flavours. Some hop notes, hints of banana and pear drop perhaps with a boiled vegetable flavour. Ok but the pasteurisation is a bit harsh.

Cloudy orange - gold beer. Crisp palate. Well balanced. Even malt, creamy. Leads straight in to orangey hops. Dry finish with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Standard stuff but well constructed.

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 29 April 2011, drank mid July 2010, so fairly fresh. Poured twice into a half pint sleeve. The beer is a lovely golden colour (hence the name!), the snow white head sadly had no staying power although it did leave some heavy lacing on the glass. The nose was hoppy as was the taste, sharp and refreshing. The label lists a host of hops used in the brew, buy a bottle to find out which! Easy drinking and well worth trying.

ralphdot (983) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2011
4.6% golden colour with a thin head, yeasty hop aroma, dry hoppy taste, quite good beer.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden colour with a tiny white head. Hoppy aroma. Quite thin with a bitter hop finish. Quite unbalanced but drinkable enough.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Bottled. A golden beer with a whitish head. A tale of two halves. At first this has barely any aroma followed by bitterness in the mouth and fruitiness intermingled with cardboard and a strange fizzy feel. There’s a bit of shampoo too. But then whaoah! Where did that come from? As good orangey citrus notes shine through. These must be the cascades. Becomes really juicy and good. Where were the good bits at the start though? Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 3.4. Average becomes 3.3
