Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
This light and refreshing ale, available throughout the summer months, is a real thirst-quencher. Plenty of fruit and hops lead to a lingering light hoppy aftertaste.

Cask@GBB2009 (thanks MadMitch76). Orangrish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bread, malts, some biscuits, butterscotch and mild zesty notes. Flavour is very similar, with some nice nectary notes. A bit sulphury notes in the flavour too though.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2014
On cask at the Standing Order. Appearance - amber and a touch murky. Nice head. Nose - malt and raisins. A bit tangy too. Like bread and butter pudding. Taste - more of the same really. But a bit fresher. Palate - light to medium bodied with a nice rich creaminess in the middle. Overall - this is a bitter not a golden ale. However very balanced and drinkable.

Cask by hand-pump at Callum’s Bar, Johnstone (4% abv on the pump-clip) - clear golden, thin creamy off-white head, weak malty aroma, excellent film of fine lacing, malty, grain, a bit lacking in hops

tombyars (1494) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in 9th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick creamy white head. Malt in the short aroma with buttery shortbread noted. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sweet fruity base of honeydew melon with none of the expected tart citrus fruit detected. Dilute hop resins impart a light floral bitter note to the short aftertaste. Finish is sweet and malty with hints of heather honey and apple crumble flavours. A decent session Golden Ale and worth seeking out.

Slightly hazy bronze. The aroma has slight biscuity nuttiness. Toasty, with lightly fruity (apple) notes. Ok beer, but seems to lack focus.
