COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Regular;
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.

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Light gold with a white foam. Aromas are marmalade with toast malts and nice fresh grassy notes. Jammy with candy sugar and mellow grapefruit. Flavours are sweet, jammy lemon and apricot with a fairly restrained grapefruit and lemon bitterness to finish low toast malts with some residual sugar. A decent hoppy brew.

tmrmwel (1525) - 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 it’s a supermarket brand. Nice golden beer.

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 (2267) - 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 there’s 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

Pours clear golden. Aroma is malty and slightly hoppy. Lots of flavor, malty and hoppy. But light and refreshing.

Senka (1006) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2015
50cl. Beautifull, gentle floral and a bit grassy spring hops. Pours clear golden, with thick head. Head retention is beautiful. Lacing is beautiful. Gently bitter, hoppy and grassy to taste. Rather thin. Very refreshing. Good when warm and cold.

500 ml fľaša v akcii Marks & Spencer Nitra. Takmer citrónovožltá farba, jemná krémová biela pena, aróma chmeľu a citrusov. Stredná rezkosť, od začiatku nástup horkosti, citrus, tráva byliny, horkosť sa drží dlho a pomaly doznieva.

Un goût franc et marqué de noisette et de malt, une bière de caractère vraiment anglaise.
