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.

ladnewton (1726) - 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 (17228) - 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 (1906) - 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 Ė itís 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 Ė but thatís no bad thing at all [17072007]

Oakes (14671) - 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.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cumberland. Warm honey-gold with scattered lacing. Balanced aroma with sweet malts and fresh hop flowers. Soft palate is slightly sticky. The sweet pale malts are big, and then finishes with a nice floral hop finish. Moreish.

JohnRMurdoch (4165) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2010

imdownthepub (12595) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite honeyed sweet from the off with a fruity, peachy background, smooth, lacking a touch of bitterness, but pretty decent drinking.
