"The Original 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.

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
Medium golden colour. The aroma is malty with a little bit of pedio. Earthy character, definitely on the sweet side, with maybe some sulphury notes. Not a terribly dynamic beer.

Scopey (10641) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Cask at The Britannia, Richmond, London. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thin fluffy white head and soft carbonation. The nose is bread, yeast, orange and grass. The taste is lemon, lime, pineapple, orange, hay, grass, honey, light spice and bread. It is a crisp, fruity, easy-drinking session ale.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Cask @ Weatherspoons in Penzance. Glassy gold with tight head. Slight pedio in the aroma. Mushrooms and earth as well. Tastes quite nice with nutty grain balancing a floral hop. Decent stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 (cask ) all the loclas where salivating over this - i left this till I’d sampled the Christmas ales from the taps next to it. A beer that intertwines a sweet malt caramel quality , with grassy , spicy fruity hops . I can see why this would be popular. Has certain textures found in generic lager - while ovbiously being of better quality. But one of those golden ales with lagery tendancies.

Rune (9998) - 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).
