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.

Sampled on my Cornish adventure from 26 - 28 January 2007 whilst visiting my friend and ratebeer fellow member Ruprecht - Nice. A golden colour with a lot of citrus and bitterness evident. Definitely a summer ale; similar to its fellow Cornish ale "Cornish Blonde", but a lot nicer.

Nice gold color, although barely any head. There was certainly alcohol present in the body, as well as the standard wheat and malts. A nice summer ale, too bad it’s January.

Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with an average diminishing head. Aroma of sweet malts and citrus with a hint of yeast. Taste of roasted malts with some caramel, a little wheat and grain and some hoppy undertones. Somewhat sweet with alcohol evident. A somewhat sweet malty finish with light bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Quite nice.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2006
A deep orange coloured beer with a light effevescence. The nose is light and slightly hoppy to begin with, which is followed by a distinct chocolatey maltyness. The taste is dry hops and a slightly lemony touch, with the balance of malt again, with a long, dry finish. (Bottle - Tesco).

Sharp but ok nose of slight citrus and hops. Mouthfeel is a little flat. Week, white head and thin orange/yellow colour. Flavour starts quite fresh with a sweet citrus malt, but gives way to a vaguey cloying character that isn’t great.

imdownthepub (13374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Orange yellow with no head. Flattish, dreary beer, thin with a hint of hops. Particularly poor against the cask version, it has non of the hop and crisp malt impact.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2004
Mild fresh, hop nose. Clear golden colour with thin white head that recedes to ring. Sweet mild malt and shy citrus/flowery hops in the flavour with a lightly fruity finish. Highly carbonated. Light body. With the exception of that fruity finish, I could swear I’m drinking a lager. It must be better on cask. Bottle.

shrubber85 (10756) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Bottle. Sour aroma when first poured but mellowed a bit with sitting with a more pleasant light malt arom. Light yellow color. High carbonation. Nice light citrus/vanilla flavor with mild bitterness. A very nice beer.
