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 conditioned at The Blue Bell, York. Gold with white head. Really a very pleasant, hopped session type bitter, refreshig and a touch dry, easily over doing the low ABV. Pretty good for its type.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2009 Cask - JDW, Canterbury. Pale gold with a creamy white head. Citrusy aromas, some spice and grassiness. The flavours were fruity: some citrus and a touch of apples with some spicy hoppiness intertwined slightly. The finish was dry and fruity. A lip smacker, with a fairly smooth mouthfeel.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at The Crown.
About as gold as a beer gets with a good white head. Lemon and grassy hop aroma with a nice earthy note. Straight down the line drinkable hoppy stuff in the mouth. Lovely dry finish. Once again a beer served at its best in the Crown.

Fukito (719) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 27, 2007
Cask @ Ackhorne, november 07. Shinny pale golden color with a small, creamy white head. Citric, lemony flavor with some hay malts at the end. OK. Medium mouthfeel hoppy/ citric prescence with a salty finnish. Dry mineral aftertaste. Refreshing. Honey, flowery aroma. Perfumey. Ok, quite dry english bitter.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Pale golde pour covered by a tight white cover. This feels like a middle-of-the-road blonde with the usual grainy and strawy malts and a sloppiness to go far beyonds. The dryness seems to come mostly from its minerality as its hops are quite devoid of aromas besides the mildest floral feel. No nonsense and no surprises.

Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration, and a nice dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
