2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold pour with thin white head. Not much aroma apart from malt and a little citrus. Taste is a bit bland..sweet, slight caramel but not much to it. Easy drinking but not anything too exciting

Decent golden ale that is a nicely balanced ale with malts most evident in the flavour.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Light, very little hop or malt character with a wet palate. This was insipidly dull, and quite probably the worst example of the style Iíve ever had. Iím all for golden ales being light and refreshing, but this just had nothing.

Cask @ The Windmill, Mayfair. Pours light golden color with a creamy white head. The nose is light floral hops, some lemon and soft grain. The taste is light peaches and soft lemon. Slight floral hop bitter finish. Light body, soft. Built for easy drinking. Pleasant indeed, but forgettable.

On tap (Seymour Inn - Jersey, Channel Islands). The smell of liberation is clearly defined by the citrus hops and Hellerathau malts. It is heavier ABV than comparable ales, but seems to finish with a very fresh after aroma.

GBBF. Cask. Hazy gold beer with a decent frothy head. Light dry palate. Light malt and a little subtle hop. which has an unfortunate sulphur streak. Dry finish. Coulda been good sans the sulphur.

On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden with a nice sized head. There is a grapefruit note which is expected but also a bit of green apple which has be worried it is just on the edge of oxidation. The taste has more of the same. I mentioned this to the bar people who canít agree re the green apple, so if it is the way itís meant to be itís worrying. For some unknown reason, I am back in the Haymarket two nights later and I try the beer again (my friend has it this time) and itís much better. So, it was slightly sour the first time and this cask was fresh.
