COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available filtered in 500ml dark glass bottles.
A quintessential golden ale brewed for refreshing easy drinking. Our soft Highland water allows the full floral flavour of the hops to come through the beer.

evergreen0199 (2008) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Cask at Craft Beer Co, London. A golden coloured pour with a small white fluffy head. Hoppy, floral aroma. Tastes quite bitter to me, hoppy, citrus fruit. Not as good as their other fine offerings.

Lubiere (9939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, lightly doughy caramel with chalky notes, faint hops. In mouth, a smooth biscuitty malt with smooth hops, more czech in style, but nice. Bottle at Mondial 2011, June 10, 2011.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
Verre de dégustation, d’une bouteille, au Mondial 2011. Arômes de malt mielleux, délicates notes de houblon citronné. Robe blonde et limpide, légère dentelle et effervescence assez fine. En bouche, on retrouve un malt anglais légèrement mielleux et céréalier, accompagné de discrètes notes houblonnées (citron). Le caractère de fermentation est encore une fois très propre, une caractéristique commune des bières de Fyne Ales. Finale douce, très légèrement amère. Une belle blonde.

AshtonMcCobb (2504) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Pours a translucent, golden colour with a hint of green. Quite carbonated and a good head. The nose is hard to define but I think it’s hay, though there are also notes of nuts and dried green herbs. The taste is more specifically hay. The palate is rich tasting for this style but still very refreshing. Good beer.

Blairgus (2597) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2011
pale yellow, slightly hazy w/ steady bubbles vegetably, citrus aromas thin body and quite crusp and slightly fizzy apparently "gold" is a style that is a step b/w lager and ale if it was fizzier i’d say it was a lager. and a quite tasty one decent.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2011
Cask at the Jolly Butchers, London on 2nd February 2011. Amber with clean white foam head giving pearl lacing. Yeasty cheesy aroma, citric in-mouth with relaxed bitterness, some cheese notes and a touch of smoke. A developing bitter finish. Mouthfeel is lightly textured. Well-crafted enjoyable ale.

Leighton (10894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Very acceptable golden ale. Pours clear yellow with a pillowy, pure white head. Fine hop aroma, light grasses and hay, with hints of orange and lemon, and some bready malts. Lightly sweet, with good, crispy bitterness of hay and citrus. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean, dry finish with modest sweetness and some lingering straw hops. Nice beer.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
From bottle. Clear golden appearance with a healthy head that slowly dissipates. Citrusy floral aroma. Complex hoppy flavor laced with lemon and apples. Refreshing bitterness that lingers pleasantly on the palate.

BeerCast_Rich (1869) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2010
[cask at the 2007 Scottish Real Ale Festival] Golden yellow colour, totally clear with a thin, small head. Hops really sing out from this one, and continue on the taste. Floral is an understatement – it’s like drinking an entire flowerbed. Citrus, flowery hops with a really well-balanced sweetness. Another great golden ale from Fyne Ales, just a notch behind Avalanche in terms of drinkability – but that’s no bad thing at all [17072007]

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
@ Cumberland Bar. Light amber. Fruity-toasty aroma might be a bit faint. Light fruity bitterness. Pale malt, with light toasty-caramel notes. Good balance - a highly quaffable pint. Another winner from Fyne Ales.
