Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned in 500ml bottles.
A golden beer to rival any other on the bar. Light and refreshing with a citrus (some say grapefruit!) note. We use a true English hop, the East Kent Golding, and in great abundance too. This is our best selling beer.
Ingredients: Lager malt. Goldings hops.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Cask at Fat Cat, Colchester. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is simple, straw, mild sweetness, stone fruit, apricot and persimmon. The taste is crisp, restrained bitterness, straw, apricot, persimmon and pale malt with a dry finish. Light body and limited carbonation. Classic low hop, malt - forward gold... So lacks some flavour.

Idiosynkrasie (6404) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
500ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, snow-white head. (Asian) spicy and citrusy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, lemongrass, and - strangely enough - yellow curry, and plum wine, a touch of brett. Taste is somehow diluted bretty, hints of hay and apricot. Very unusual, if intentional.

jmgreenuk (7669) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 1, 2013
Cask at The Ale House, Colchester. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop varnish bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. I’m not sure what hops were used but they took some getting used to!

Theydon_Bois (16866) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to Jim Ezzex IP, 26/02/13. Bottle conditioned - just under a month after BBD for future re-rate reference. Hazed golden amber with a smallish frothy white head that clears to a film, looks a little over carbonated wirh small bubbles clinging to the glass. Nose is pale malt, lemon peel, orange, yeasty notes, light spice, cooking apples. Taste comprises grass, citrus, yeast, pale malt, stewed apples, wheat, grain. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some citric bitterness in the finish. Not good, not bad ... file under ’W’ !

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
BC round the in-laws, 14/07/12. Cloudy pale gold with a spotted skim of suds. English apple; juvenile Orval-like horse, gooseberry aroma. Attractive, yeasty, hop-bitter and drying beer with an underlying sprinkle of biscuit. Some grassiness; a hint of nuts. Rustic and quite harsh. Decent.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear yellow pour with almost no head. Faint aroma, bits of straw. Decent flavor, reasonably sweet, plenty of straw and cereal, some lagerishness in there, mildy bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty well balanced by the time the finish comes around. Some nice crackery malts and straw hops. Some faint soap, but no biggie. Decent.
