COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

Cask. Pale golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity and floral along with some mild zesty and earthy notes. Flavour is fruity and floral with some mild nectar and also some balancing up maltyness as well. A quite pleasant and refreshing golden ale.

A very average ale. Slight grassy aroma, golden coloured, taste of citrus and on the palate there’s not a great deal. As for it feeling more than 3.8% as the description says, yes, its more like an ale just over 4%/

Cask@Spitting Feathers Brewery Tap, Chester. Clear amber looks with a thin white head. Pretty uninspiring nose with some muffled grassy hop lurking. Palate a bit thin. Citrus was about the only thing that stood out in the flavour. Hoppage not prominent enough. Dry bitter finish. Drinkable but blah.

Cask Conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough. More copper than pale gold if you ask me with a nice whitish bubbly head and lacing. The hops are fairly grassy in the nose and lightly fruity in the mouth. Quite light all round but quaffable enough.

Draught (Euston Tap, London)
6+ nice grainy aroma, but Anna says swimming pool.
3 Gold, small head.
6+ Rich mashy and slightly wooly taste, a touch grainy. Simple mashy body, no yum factor.
3 Palate’s a little heavy with underattenuation.
12+ Not a bad beer, but not really selling itself.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Cask. A pale golden beer with a dense off-white head. The aroma has light notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with light notes of malt and lemon, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

I like golden ales but I found this one to be too tart for my taste, having a very sharp citrus taste to it

Leighton (11845) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
Cask at Euston Tap. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a small, cream head. Light cereal aroma with straw and grass hops. Nicely balanced flavor with dough and cracker malts then fairly strong earth hay hops. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finishes quite dry with some caramel notes and citrus and grass hops. Solid

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Clean lager looking beer with head telling that it’s not lager. Almost no aroma other than yeast, that was not very pleasant. Taste is in usual ale style hoppy and dry. I would categorize this as mild ale. I wish I would have this beer in tap next to office where I work at next summer, because this is nearly perfect summer drink.
