A new golden beer from Nethergate, drinking more like a best bitter than its strength suggests. The fruity and spicy overtones are noticeable from the start on the nose and palate, whilst at the end the the sweet, soft orange notes return, resulting in a complete, well-rounded finish.

Aroma and taste of hops and malt with light hints of caramel and fruit. The taste is rather thin. In the aftertaste there is some lingering hops bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington. Almost lager looks with streaming carbonation and a dense Gillette head. Herbal, pine and mown grass aroma with some orange peel yeastiness. Bit one dimensional with a dominant polished pine sort of taste; some soda and pale malt nuttiness. OK but drab.

berkshirejohn (5014) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2011
Cask at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Amber in colour with a tight cream head; crainy, citrus aroma; full bodied, with a an orange fruit flavour; quite sweet at first, but then well-balanced with a sharp grapefruit finish. A really mouth-watering Golden Ale. Ecellent.

Leighton (13513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2011
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a clear, yellow-gold with a faint, filmy head. Sugary malt aroma with mild sweat, straw and citrus. Flavor is nice, pretty sweet with some honey and sun-kissed hay, lightly bitter with tangerine and grass. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, lightly bitter, some bread and easy citrus rind. Very pleasant beer.

FatPhil (10240) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2011
Cask (Red Bull, Cambridge)
Simple dark bitter. Slight fruity aroma, full palate, rich malty retronasals, fruity and bitter hops. Decent long finish - bitter and dark and resiny, with a touch of grapefruit. Tasty English bitter, better than ’golden’ implies.

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2010
Draught. Clear golden with good white head. Very little aroma - bread? Light body and carbonation. Flavour had some sweet candy notes and some bitterness in finish. Good quaffing ale.

Bit bland really. 5+ Muted aroma, fruity, hints at lemon briefly. Smoothish light palate. 2+ Meh. Inoffensive but quite dull. Cask at The Lamb and Flag, Oxford
