500ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a large white head and plenty of sediment. Lots of citrus flavour and full-on bitter hops. Perhaps slightly over carbonated, which is standard for Mallinson’s beers. Sharp and refreshing, and other than the excess carbonation it’s exactly the kind of beer I love.

Nope. 4.1%. Bit of soap. Not enough fresh hops. I have come to expect much better from my Goldens.

Bottle from Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed at home, Thursday 20th September 2012 Pours hazy gold, bit murky but that was due to a bad pour by me. Sweetness combining with grapefruit well, very nice, touch dry. Really decent beer, very enjoyable. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
