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.

BlackHaddock (3509) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Last beer of the day during a CAMRA pub crawl of Shifnal, Shropshire on 14th Dec 13. Hand-pulled pint in The Anvil, where the buffet was arranged for. I bet you canít guess the body colour! OK, it might be golden and have a white crown on top. Semi-sweet malty molasses in the nose and taste with mild hop hints below the surface. This is a good session Ale and one Iíve had many times (surprised to find Iíd never written about it before. I like the sweeter Uk Bitters and this sits nicely in that style and taste. Not blessed with powerful flavours or a rich body itís just a well made and stylish beer.
