COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted by the master brewer of "Old Speckled Hen", this light golden beer, delivers both flavour and refreshment. Brewed using the finest pale malts, and the rare Galaxy hop to give a light golden colour, subtle tropical fruit notes and a deliciously smooth finish.

Quite a hoppy aroma backed up by light amber appearance and strong taste. Always an enjoyable pint.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Cask at the Malt & Hops, Fenton. Bright amber with a dense cream head; the aroma has a touch of citrus but is predominantly peachy; in the mouth there’s a soft peachy taste and a dry, grainy body; followed by a milky finish. A refreshing summer ale.

SilkTork (5278) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Bull Inn, Maidstone. Nice drinkable summer beer - nice lemony flavour. Served in perfect condition. It’s not a great beer, but is very drinkable and tasty. Enjoyed it.

larsniclas (5745) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Cask at Duke of Kendal Golden. Small white head. Citric and citric on both aroma and flavour. Fresh mouthfeel with a spicy, bitter touch; wormwood.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
(Cask): Golden colour with a light creamy head. Strong aroma of fruity malts and some citrus. Bready, biscuity, fruity malt taste. A sweet finish with strong prevalence of oranges. Slight bitterness.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Cask, Langton Arms, Church Langton. Golden with a firm cream head. Aromas are apple with with grain and lemon and hints of lime. Flavours are cereal with zesty lemony yeast. Bready with a dry finish and some mango fruit. Not bad.

Leighton (11899) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Cask at The Champion - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Grainy bready malt nose, some toasty leaves. Light sweet flavor with cheap, creamy malts, mild dough, bitter leaves, hints of citrus, touches of rubber. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Basic bready malt finish, low bitterness, some dough, white sugar, faint grass. Basic, underwhelming.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2013
Tasted this in Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow in April 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin clean white head. Dusty hop present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a dry digestive biscuit base with a hint of orange but fleeting. Floral hop resins give a citrus bite in the long aftertaste. Finish is bitter with a note of orange pith in the mouth. An ok session Golden Ale but really lacking in complexity of flavours.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Cask @ The Lansdowne Leicester. Golden coloured (unsurprisingly) fruity aroma. Slightly tropical fruit taste, very slight bitterness. It’s alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Definitely not my thing. Biscuit and balls. I don’t like drinking balls. Of any kind *waits for a smart-ass comment from Dom*
