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.

From cask at Duke of wellington. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild hoppy and fruity. Bitter and light malty base flavoured. Light cornish flavoured into a bitter and dry finish.

Rune (9098) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2009
Cask, full pint, cellar cold at The Flying Horse, Gatwick. Slightly unclear golden-amber body. Tiny, white head reduced to a patchy surface. Malt-fruity smell. Some apricot mixed with grain in flavour. Too few hints of hop bitterness to the ending. Alright, but not in prime shape at the pub. In fact, rather vapid in the mouth (waiting for hours at the airport for a new plane, 08.08.2009).

KnutAlbert (6363) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2009
Cask at the Winged Horse, Gatwick Airport. A bit sweet, peaches, flowers, not much in the way of hoppy dryness. More hops would lift many of those golden ales a lot.

berkshirejohn (5030) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2009
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Amber with a dense cream head; sweet honey aroma; creamy texture with honey and biscuity malt flavours; and a slightly bitter finish. Unexciting.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
cask @ The Eagle (London - Old Street) Clear bright gold pour with an average diminishing creamy white head. Odd aroma, this - canola and thai stir fry (snow peas?). There’s only a hint of peapod in the taste, it’s more about a slightly harsh oiliness from the grain, but the main characteristic is probably lightness - not a lot of body to it, a slight oily aftertaste that’s not unpleasant, but it is a bit unwelcome in such a weak beer. Just okay - could really stand some proper golden ale floral hoppiness.
