COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available in 660ml bottles at 5.5%.
Somerland Gold is another regular medal winner. If you like your beers golden, hoppy and refreshing then this is for you, but be careful - it goes down quickly for 5%. Pale and Wheat malts are jostling for your attention with Challenger and Northern Brewer hops. At this strength our English yeast leaves hints of honey.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle @ home. Medium golden color with a big, white head. The nose is light citrus, plenty of cut grass fresh hop aroma. Some vanilla and peach. The taste is light summer fruits, some grain, more peaches with a light dry finish. Pleasing and zingy flavor. Light/medium body, active carbonation. Overall, quite refreshing.

AshtonMcCobb (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours blonde with a proportionate head. The nose is of pine and tangerine. The taste is of sweet meadow floors. The palate is medium bodied and medium textured with a clean finish. Overall, a nice pale ale.

Hazy gold beer. Slightly soft palate. Fairly bitter hops immediately make their presence known. Mild malt and then a little sweet pineapple peeping through the bitter hops. Finishes dry and bitter. Too much bitterness and not enough fruit from the hops.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
This is ok, different. Sweet, with citrus of orange coming through on nose and mouth. Doesn’t last. Not the best looking beer - murky orange with thin head though it lasts.

JohnRMurdoch (2958) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012
660ml Bottle from Great Grog. Pale golden yellow colour, reasonable head, lot of sediment. Flowery resin tropical fruit aroma. Citrus fruit & resin flavour. Bitter aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
Cask handpull, The Swan, Hammersmith, 03/04/12. Thick gold with chunky lace. Chlorophyll-packed aroma; geranium, tomato leaf, shave of lime. A little underwhelming with chewy malt, almond, weak citric hop. Bitter afters. Husk. By Moor’s standards, plain boring.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Crown Oxford. A golden beer with a white bubbly head and lacing. A citrussy beer. Pleasant hops in the nose. Tropical fruit and peach in the mouth. A good malt balance. Pretty tasty.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2012
[cask at Red Squirrel, Edinburgh] Hazy gold beer, puffy white head. Floral aroma, with a mix of yeasty sweetness and lemon zing – pretty interesting nose. Orange and lemon came out on top on the flavour, some sweeter pineapple fruit, yeast too. Interesting stuff – highly refreshing, the finish in particular was long and getting on for being sharp [15022012]
