500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear golden yellow with small white head. Aroma is some gently sweet fruit, cereal grains and tea-like herbal character. Flavour is fruity and grainy with earthy, herbal hops and a hint of mineraliness in finish. Pleasant.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Cask @ Old Sun, Harlington. Yellow gold. Sunshine. Faint aroma of bitter citrus hops. Taste is on the money: complex malt and hop flavours. Moreish bitter finish. A good beer that benefits from decent cellarmanship.

Clear golden pour with a white head that leaves a thin sticky lace. Bright fruit on the nose with some cereal grain, touch of toffee. The same thing can be said of the palate with more toffee. Probably the least interesting of the beers I’ve had from these cats.

Bottled. Bought at a Belgian ale specialty store in Bratislava/Slovakia. This bitter ale is fantastic! Refreshing, bitter, fruity. The aroma is of floral tea. A nice cloudy golden yellow color. The taste is exactly my style! It tastes bitter with a lot of tea herbal tea flavor. A great summer beer! Anytime again.

My Bottom Line:
The compelling mélange of citrusy tropical fruit and crunchy cereals whipped up by this Golden Ale soars over an otherwise delicate finish, crafting a compelling quenching experience.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the bright pale yellow.
-The body is never thin, even though this is only 3.8%.
-Pungent cheeses (like the Stinking Bishop) would adore this.
-The tropical fruit character is jazzy enough to point towards NZ hop cultivars.
-The body is lean and the bubbling soft.
-Aftertaste is discreet, which is not the case for the flavour profile.
On cask at The Kingston Arms, Cambridge.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours golden and fairly bright with a thin head. The nose is mostly of malt and lemon. The taste has grapefruit lemon pith and creamy malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with a clean finish. Good ale isn’t it a Pale?
