Golden Ale has rich ale flavours with lager drinkability, making it the ultimate summer refreshment.

I liked this. Pours clear gold (duh), with a decent head. Really nice sweet fruit on the nose (like peaches in syrup), delicious palate of fruity hops that finishes fairly crisply. On the lighter side, but I think that is why I like this one-- good flavours and balance that allow for repeated drinkability.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 Certainly a very quaffable ale. Poured an off-white frothy head, which didn’t last all that long, on top of a gloriously golden amber fluid (surprise). Copped a whiff of fermenting stone fruits and a touch of toffee amongst the hoppy aroma. Quite a sweet short flavour, and relatively modest in the mouth. Some pepperyness on tasting. Nice and relatively easy drinking.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2005
Pale golden colouration, lightish head. Aroma is honeysh with strong passionfruit aroma. Flavour is a little hollow, with honey, grain, passionfruit peach and light bitterness, quite dry.

TimE (3092) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 11, 2005
Golden amber color, with apples and peaches in the nose. A very light body, lightly hopped brew with peaches and a slightly dry finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
Tap@James Squire Brewhouse. Some really nice aromatic hops in the nose, lychee and honey in the nose. Shame the body and flavour don’t really go anywhere. Drinkable, for sure, but not very interesting. Some cardboard in the finish.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2005
One of the better ales in this brewery’s generally disappointing range. It’s a "limited release" "thirst-slaking session beer" for the summer months. Poured an intense gold colour with a short, brief head. The nose is gloriously ripe with tropical fruit. It’s a medium-bodied easy-drinker, very fresh and summery. HInts of passionfruit, nuts and grapefruit. Some lingering bitterness from the Amarillo hops. A very rounded ale but short on real flavour and complexity. (Bottle)

Excellent version of English lighter style summer ale. More carbonation but intruiging fruity hop aroma & late palate. Well balanced easy drinking. Most important hangover free after a big session- I know Ive tried!

Stew41 (1724) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 Could be the beer to convert the great unwashed to partially quality orientated beer. More than a sliver of sweet malts drive the palate, but for the most part fairly authentic for the genre. Finishes a touch cloying for mine.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2005
Not a bad seasonal offering. Pours out to an orange-yellow color with a thin white head. Has a fruity, slightly floral hop aroma. Starts off with quite a fruity-sweet flavor with hints of apples, pears and peaches. Finishes with a light bitterness and some floral European hop character followed by a lingering cereal grain taste. Medium-light carbonation and a light body give it a pleasing mouthfeel on warm days.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2004
Orange body with a persistent white head. Fruity and resinous hop aroma. So far so good, it smelled a lot like their IPA. Clean but not much actual flavour at all and very thin. Not an APA, another disappointing effort from this faux micro.
