Cask; Regular. Originally brewed at 4.6%. Has been available in bottle.
Golden Newt is a pale session bitter 4.1%. 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.

Reindeer. Golden. This has a nice balanced malty base with a gentle citrus hoppiness. Light to medium with a soft feel.

Cask @ Burnaby Arms, Bedford. Mid to dark gold. Aroma is malty with hints of citrus fruit hop, like a proper lager. Taste is... wow. Bittersweet, flavourful and rich from start to finish.

Theydon_Bois (15008) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby, 06/03/13. Clear pale golden with a decent sized white cap. Nose is pale malts, grass, light citrus - pretty thin. Taste comprises pale malt, lemon, citrus, light summer fruit, vegetal notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Look and feel drags this one up a few notches - very average, not one to revisit for me!

foxo82 (826) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Cask at The Cross Keys, Nottingham. Amber brown headless ale with gravy hops aroma and a tangy, bitter grassy hops taste. Reminiscent of Harvest Pale. Decent session ale.

Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London on 17th June 2011. Amber with very little head and no lacing. Fruity aroma and liquid; berries and citric hop on tongue. Citric grapefruit finish on a surprisingly zingy mouthfeel.

On draught. Golden orange with a short lived head. Tastes smooth, with a hint of bitterness and slightly sharp finish, a bit woody. Very light fruity aroma. Quite reasonable and could have it again.

Blond colour. Flavour is quite sharp and a little hoppy. Texture rather thin and watery.
