Golden Ale. Nectar of the Gods. Exmoor Gold is the original "single malt" traditional ale - pale gold in colour with a malty aroma and flavour. A light sweetness is complemented by its long hoppiness resulting in a remarkable well-rounded beer.

Ingredients: 100% pale malt. Challenger, Goldings and Fuggles whole hops.

Crisp and malty, lightly sweet and biscuity body nicely balanced by a decent hoppiness for a golden ale.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks grumbo for the trade. Clear golden with a white head. Paper and a little moldy aroma, sweet and old taste. Light body, stale and sweet finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, kinda stale, a bit of dust. Sweetish flavor with stale-ish malt, a bit of minerals, and a bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied.

Bottle from Morrison’s. Golden coloured pour with a fading off white head. Aroma is grassy, little sileage, mineral. Flavour is rustic, straw, fermented grass, bitter earthy grains. Palate is semi sweet grains, moderate carbonation. Substantial dirty rugged bitterness. OK.

Bottle that Dad shared with me- cheers! Gold with a moderate white head. Far too fizzy. Nice fresh lemon up front, then caramel and vanilla take over. Mildly bitter at the end, but lacks crispness. This may have been one of the earliest (if not the first) UK golden ales, and was no doubt rather innovative at the time, but nowadays it doesn’t stand up to comparison with it’s modern rivals and is a below-par example of the style.

Pours a pale golden with a fluffy white head which soon settles right down. As per the bottle deScription there is a hint of vanilla on the nose along with grassy and slightly citric hops. The taste is a kinda slightly sweet biscuit malt along with strong hop presence. The hop is more hay and grass than citrus but pleasingly bitter. This is a nice enough beer!
