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.

Leighton (18527) - 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 (13867) - 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.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Cask conditioned at Codshall Station, Codshall, Staffs. Orange gold with white head. Pretty straightforward golden Ale, slight buttery notes and a touch oily in the body, light restrained malts but not much hop action for me, all a little sweetish and light. It’s ok and drinkable without getting stuck in. Reasonable.
