Cask conditioned handpump Goat St Albans 03/08/12. A golden beer with whitish bubbles for a head. Sweet honeyed notes throughout. A bit of caramel toffee note. Certainly sweet but not overpoweringly so. A decent body. It’s OK.

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Cask at JDW, Streatham Hill. Pours amber with a white head. Big butterscotch aroma on this. Tastes well past it's prime too - butterscotch along side tart sour notes. Not right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SarkyNorthener (2391) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Cask@national brewery centre, burton. Golden amber beer with a large frothy head. Aroma of pale malts. Taste is pale malts, some floral hops and a hint of honey. Not great, dull.

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Dark gold/light brown. Faint, vague, fleeting sweet honey aroma. Bland sweetish sour taste. Basically, there’s not much to this beer. Tastes even weaker than 4%. Not really my cup of tea.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Cask on handpump at the Stag & Hounds, Binfield. An attractive bright golden amber colour with a loose translucent head; pleasant pear-drop aroma; pear-drop flavour too with a medium body, some honey, but not too sweet; then a fresh grassy bitterness and a slight sweetening at the end.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours dark gold with a weak foam head. Lightly toasted malt nose with hints of berries. Medium sweet flavor with mild toasted malts, light dry toffee, subtle yet sweet berry fruits. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty sweet to finish with toasty sugars, very light jammy berries, impressions of honey sweetness but not the flavor. A so so golden ale. Pretty enjoyable.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
Bag-in-the-box at Square Peg, Birmingham
Golden color, with a small but persistent creamy head. Light malt and caramel aroma. The malt flavor is quite good, with some toffee and light butter; correct bitterness level too. The final is lightly metallic.
Pleasant.

Quack-Duck (8159) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2011
cask at the Anchor, Sidmouth. Amber-golden colour, fruity nose. Medium-bodied, malty, hints of honey and citrus fruit. Nice.
