The Cambridgeshire Golden Ale is brewed with a blend of English Challenger and American Mount Hood hops, balanced by East Anglian Maris Otter malt. Dry hopping before bottling gives a burst of flavour on the palate and a subtle bitterness that lingers beautifully.
Ingredients: water, barley malt (Maris Otter), wheat malt, hops (Challenger, Mount Hood), yeast, carbon dioxide.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from Marks & Spencers in Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. There is a soft carbonation to this but not intrusive to the flavour. There is a light citrus character to this, quite crisp, fruity, refreshing with a zesty edge. Pretty decent.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle. Pale and clear gold, with next to no head but plenty of fizz. Light, citrus fruit, with some hay and leafy hops. Flavour had some lemon sharpness, crisp malts, a vaguely peppery kick leading to a lingering, bitter, finish. Enjoyable.

allmyvinyl (9458) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2016
500ml bottle from M&S, the gyle, Edinburgh. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch and corn. Light sulphur. Taste is just as bad. Grim finish. Possibly the worst beer Iíve bought from marksís. Possibly one of the worst things Iíve ever put in my mouth, and I was a catholic choirboy.

tmrmwel (1770) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear, very light golden, with a creamy head. Aroma is grassy hops with zesty citrusy notes, as well as malts with cereals, toffee and notes of honey. Light body, with average carbonation. Flavour is crisp, bitter hops, with citrusy notes, as well as some light roasted malts with cereals. Lingering bitter finish. Nothing exceptional, but still surprisingly tasty and quaffable considering itís a supermarket brand. Nice golden beer.

The_Tippler (1) - Lancashire, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016 does not count
Big Oakham fan, Inferno and Citra. This one is a grower - quite understated but is very moreish. Golden Ale is not my favourite style, but this one is really growing on me. Very accessable but also satifying

EdKing (2394) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle from M&S Brixton. Got excited about these beers being from Oakham but this one is pretty much in the bog standard golden ale catagory, Clear golden amber with a fairly hefty white light foam head. Nose is honeyish biscuit malt, cereal grain husky and musky, slight citrous peel, dab of grapefruit. taste is quite a dry citrous bitter hop, with something earthier and more astringent, honeyish cereal malt. In the finish thereís a bit of mild grapefruit rind.

Sweet nose with some grassy hops. Plenty of earthy wood flavour subtlety balanced with biscuity malt. An excellent modern take on this traditional British style. Rated by BrewTom
