A light amber, easy drinking beer which has an intensity of flavour unexpected in a beer of it’s strength. First Gold and Goldings hops give this beer a delicate hop aroma and a distinctive bitter after palate.

Cask. Pours gold with a white head. Bready/biscuity aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has sweet malts, a hoppy hint, and a little bit of a fruity sweetness. Not bad.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Inn Northampton. A bright gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A fusty aroma with a bit of stale citrus hop. The hops are better in the mouth with nice orange notes. Served a little warm.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 11th February 2010. Crystal clear gold with small, thickly lacing off-white head. Slight yeasty aroma, soon hoppy with grassy bitterness. A lingering, tickling bitterness on the roof of the mouth with a bitter, but rather short-lived finish.

imdownthepub (13369) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2007
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Pale amber with white head. Gentle little session bitter, nicely balanced with a sweetish biscuity malt, a touch of peach in the background then a gentle fragrant, bittersweet hop. An enjoyable start to the days festivities.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2011 Cask (handpump) at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival 2005. Pale amber colour. Distinct diacetyl notes on the aroma, which I found off-putting. Otherwise, it’s a reasonably well balanced, moderately hoppy, but unremarkable session bitter. Too delicate to cope with the intrusive butterscotch. Sadly, not in peak condition methinks. [4/3/6/3/12 = 2.8]
RE-RATE. Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 17 January 2011 - meet the brewer night, with 10 Mighty Oak beers on tap. Looks good - bright darkish amber with sparkling condition and a thin white head. Much fresher and cleaner than when I tasted it before. However, tasted next to a lot of ebullient golden ales it came over as a rather staid traditional English session bitter. Solid but not too exciting. Score updated [6/4/6/3/12 = 3.1]

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Cask at White Hart Margareting Tye. A gold colour with white head, a pleasant session beer well balanced by the hops. I prefer this to the Maldon Gold better balanced for my taste. I tried this again at same pub, even better slight honey flavour balanced by the hops.
