500ml bottle from Real Ale, Twickenham. I had this years ago on cask at the Market Porter and remembered liking it, so I decided to buy this when I saw it. Golden with thin white head. Lovely hop aroma of US fragrant hops. Slightly sweet in mouth and could do with a touch more roundness from the malt. Then beautiful US hop finish, all citrus and compelling. A tad too gassy

Cask at The Royal Oak, Bank (Lyndhurst): Dark golden colour, thin foamy layer, lacing; enourmous herbal hoppiness in the nose, moderate bitter flavour; dry, long lasting, strong bitter-aromatic finish; light bodied, but well rounded. Pleasant, spicy....

(Cask conditioned@William K./Fleminginkatu 6) Slightly hazy, pale golden color with a small head. Very mild, slightly flowery-hoppy aroma. Quite sharp-hoppy flavor with some biscuity malt. Light to medium-bodied, bitter and acidic palate with quite flat carbonation. A moderately hoppy, slightly stingy real ale - nothing very interesting.

Polypin@Real Ale opening. Lightly honeyed and ever so slightly smokey, which was was odd, as i wouldn’t expect there to be any smokeyness from such a pale gold beer. Citrusy, hoppy finish. Quite light bodied, pleasant to drink.

Golden colour. Strong grassy hop aroma, but that doesn’t carry through onto the palate. Mildly fruity, but rather muted flavours. Soft mouthfeel, slightly dusty/chalky. OK, just not very exciting. Cask (gravity dispense), Battersea Beer Festival 2005.

Initially some sweetness that subsides to a bitter hoppyness. Appearance wise the clue is in the title - deep gold colour.

Bright Beer at The Coachmans Rest, Enstone, Oxon. Yellow golden beer with no head. Itchen valley beers seem to employ a malty sweetness that could be cloying but in this case works very well. Full bodies, well hopped with aromatic variety. A very pleasant beer drunk in a very pleasant place, many thanks Paul.
