BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2011
[cask at SRAFí11] Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Some hop on the nose, together with a vague malt sweetness. The balance is there on the taste as well Ė this is clearly well-made, but just a bit too insipid. Finish fades away rather than ending dry, the faint hop profile peters out (no pun intended) [16062011]

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
Malt and a little yeast, rather light weight. Lacks the bitter edge to make it really refreshing or quaffable. Not bad, just not worth seeking out.

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
Cask Pale gold pint, creamy head. Nice hop nose; bit of citrus and stonefruit, malt takes a backseat. Lean body, quite dry, low carbonation. Hops dominate body, grapefruit, bitter orange, spice, hint of honeyish malts. Reasonably good bitter finish. Enjoyable, hop-driven ale; one of the better ones iíve come across in Scotland.

berkshirejohn (5223) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2009
Cask at the Prince of Wales, Aberdeen. Amber with a dense white head; citrus aroma; light citrus flavour with a touch of honey; light grapefruit bitterness to finish. Very refreshing, a good example of a Golden Ale.
