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.

jmgreenuk (6970) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at the Moon in the Square, Bournemouth. Clear, light amber pour, thin white head and some lace. This beer is malt all the way through with malt in the aroma and a caramel maltiness in the taste. There is almost no bitterness at all in this beer and one wonders what hops were used. This ale grew on me as it got warmer. I’d order it again!

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Gold (!), no head; sweet caramel malt predominates; some citrus; a little bitterness in the otherwise sweet aftertaste; this example served at The Ox, Parkstone was perhaps not in the best condition - hints of vinegare; I’ve tasted many better golden ales this summer - this was unexciting.

McNeillR (2143) - Edinburgh, 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)
