A light refreshing pale ale designed for the discerning session drinker. Pale Gold has a floral/spicy aroma derived from the finest American hops. A beer that drinks higher than its modest alcohol content would suggest.

After much deliberation the Old Boys Real Ale Tour boys Bargain Bob and Johnkett rated Pale Gold their favourite session beer at their regular haunt The Travellers Inn in Hipperholme, Halifax. The bench mark for all our rating sessions.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and citric notes in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a fruity base with grapefruit and kiwi present in there. Metallic tang to the hop resins giving a dry bitter astringent aftertaste. Finish is dry with strong pithy flavours in the tart citric flavours. A below average Golden Ale.
