3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber beer with strong white head. The aroma is lightly malty, and the flavour is bitter with caramel maltyness. Overall a reasonable beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1st April 2010
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle. Dark golden colour with a tiny white head. Hoppy aroma. Quite thin with a bitter hop finish. Quite unbalanced but drinkable enough.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: deep golden, a bit unclear, medium-sized and stable lacy, fluffy off-white head; distinctive floral hops and a tinge of sulphur in the nose; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and soft; shorter hoppy, juicy and fruity finish. Just a fine english brew.......
