Cask; Regular.
Also available bottled (not to be confused with Golden Pale Ale, which is actually the bottled version of Black Country Bitter).
An 18ct gold, golden ale with subtle yet fragrant hop aromas, a moreish gentle sweetness and an almost citrus like pleasant bitter finish. Brewed using the finest English Maris Otter malts and choicest Fuggles, Golden Glow is a thirst quenchingly refreshing beer.

On draught. Clear golden, smooth, bitter with a hint of hops. A great example of a session bitter.

The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Cask at The Great Western, Wolverhampton as ’Holdens Golden Glow’. Dark yellow, clear, still, dense creamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is airy and light, non-deScript. Some sweet apple notes later on. Body is medium, soft carbonation, rounded. Taste is apple sauce, yeast, sweet honey-ish malt, fudgey. Occasionally hints at egg. An interesting and quaffable beer, intended to be knocked back by the pint - and I could easily drink it in those quantities.

500ml bottle from Moonshine & Fuggles beer shop, Ironbridge. Golden colour, white foam head and aroma of citrus, grassy hop. Flavour is malt, grain, straw, hay and some citrusy bitterness. Light bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

500ml bottle at home, clear golden beer with a white head, notes of cereal, wheat, straw and malts. Good but it ain’t mild!!!

minutemat (4452) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Cask @ The Salopian, Shrewsbury. It actually does have a kind of golden glow. Smooth caramel flavours, a faint air of citrus, easily quaffable, not a bad drop.

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at The Great Western during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear gold with a light, creamy white head. Sweet, doughy malt character with accents of sugary citrus and light hay, orange. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with bready malts, light dough and orange citrus. OK.
