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.

McNeillR (1392) - SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Straight down the middle bitter in all respects. Rinsed stainless pots in the nose, almost non-existant head, wood bark body. Choppy malt flavour with inoffensive hop combination. Easily quaffable but a total slope of flavour on the palate, probably their safest but most boring bitter of the weekend - and the last they had! (Cask, ATP curated by Jeff Mangum, during The Magnetic Fields)

prawlie (1208) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Nice golden colour, no gas, nice head. Slightly sweet, smooth, pure and with a hint of malt. Pleasany and refreshing. That said the dry and bitter aftertaste is a little too strong. Little in the way of aroma, neither good nor bad.
