Golden Best is a new beer for 2012 brewed with Flagon pale ale malt grown and malted in Norfolk. A golden bitter ale with great aroma, crisp bitterness, balanced malt and a hoppy finish. A most refreshing beer!

imdownthepub (13228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Squirrel, Coventry. Gold with white head. Initially quite thinnish in character but then a light fruity, almost a crisp gooseberry type flavour. Light and dry, the best beer on the day in Coventry, by far.

jjsint (2328) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Splendid golden brown, strong flowery aroma. Very bitter taste and aftertaste. A good enough beer, but not the best I’ve had lately.
