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.

I really do like this one. Smashing golden ale, bought it direct from the brewery.

Bottle. Mmmm - a crisp, fragrant and juicy golden ale. Fresh grapefruit with a delicate balancing sweetness. Like a crisp, clean American Pale Ale. This is an outstandingly brilliant beer!

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.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Cask @ Bon Accord & bottles from The Scottish Real Ale Shop, Beers of Europe, Oddbins AleselA. Mild resin, grain, biscuit & malt aroma. Hazy pale golden amber colour, reasonable head. Biscuit & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Easy to drink. Great golden ale. Superceeded by Hurricane Jack.

@ 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.

[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]

Leighton (18526) - 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.

This was the third bottled beer that I sampled from this brewery and all were excellent. Golden appearance and a nice hoppy bounciness makes for a very refreshing drink.So far I have yet to have a dissapointing drink from a Scotish micro.This is highly recommended.
