Well..... Say no more.... For paler ale lovers this one is a masterstroke of excellence. Superb from start to finish, this is simply awe inspiring. It’s palatability belies it’s strength. A sure stunner, everything about this must-sample gorgeous drink is perfection in a glass!

Clear yellow with next to no head. It is very malty and slightly overbearing in this respect.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this at the Waterside Inn, Seamill in August 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a slight digestive biscuit note with gooseberry, kiwi and lime notes coming through. Hops give a light citric taint to the resiny aftertaste. Finish is lightly edged with dry hops to give a sharp citric bite to accompany the golden syrup laden malty finish. An excellent ESB session beer and well recommended.

What I imagine Harry Potters butterbeer to taste like!
Poured a hazy golde with good tight head. aroma is hoppy/grapefruit and the taste was very buttery with a smack of toffee! leaves a silky mouth coating with a bitter finish. very drinkable, but a strange taste
Cask from Town Street Tavern, Horsforth, Leeds

Cask at the Myrtle Grove (JDW), Bingley, West Yorks’, 03-05-07. Golden in colour, nice floral aroma with a hint of alcohol. Taste was very smooth with hints of vanilla, some grapefruit flavours also coming through after with a dry finish, great beer, suprised at the ratings of others as I felt this was an excellent beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival, Putney, London. Rich gold colour. Quite pale for a strong bitter but definitely a bitter rather than a golden ale. Not for the first time with a Goose Eye beer, the overall effect was impaired by a heavy buttery diacetyl presence in the aroma. In the mouth its cleaner, with a balance of soft malt and citric hop. Decent bite on the finish. But, unfortunately, its the diacetyl that leaves the most lasting impression.
