Bottled. Yeasty grassy and faintly sour aroma. Pours a very sparkling pale gold colour with the sediment holding well in the bottle. Dry biscuity flavour with a fine malty finish that has some bready notes. A good summery beer.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
500ml bottle, BBE May 2012, drunk in December 2011.Mid gold colour. Soft honeyish aroma. Just a dab of tangy hop there. Mellow on the palate with moderate bitterness. Malt backing is quite biscuity. Finishes quite dry. Mouthfeel is fairly weighty for the style. Not the most zingy golden ale but decent enough.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
A golden orange beer with a weak white head. a light hoppy nose with some biscuity malt in the background. The taste is initially dry and hoppy, but this is then followed by a biscuity malt flavour that carries through into a smooth, slightly sweet finish. (Cask - @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
