This golden bitter has excellent body allied to a clean and refreshing character. First Gold hops and East Anglian malt combine to give a smooth, well-balanced flavour.

Cask at Old Cannon Brewery, Bury St. Edmunds. Pours light clear gold with lacy small white head. Aroma of sweet berry fruits. Taste- sour berry fruit, orange citrus, grass hops. Would be quite pleasant in summer. Dry.

Good solid summer cask ale. Nice aroma and laces well. Hoppy flavor with a bitter aftertaste which is similar to other Cannon beers. Nice golden color and just makes the day that much better. Really good stuff!

Bottle from Beautiful Beers in Bury St. Edmunds. Finally in a bottle! Pours hazy pale with lovely white head and good conditioning. Scent of biscuity malty sweetness, oranges, pineapple and alcohol. Taste is refreshing, citrus fruitiness moving briefly to pineapple and sweet malt, then a dry and hoppy finish with gentle drying palate and ready for some more. Very nice.

Cask, gravity, at The Pig ’n’ Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Gold. Light citric hop aroma. Sweet malt creeps into the taste with a curious suggestion of peanuts. Mid bitter finish. Fair to middling.

Pale & clean. Lots of hop bitterness, but low on aroma hops. Refreshing, dry finish. Good blonde ale. Handpump, Old Cannon, Bury St Edmunds, October 2003.
