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.

jjsint (499) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, 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 (4206) - 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 (9855) - 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.

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.
