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.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Gravity cask at Maidstone BF. Dark gold, some US hop aroma, bit of hay but a bit dull. Hoppy, citrus finish 2.8/5 Re rate at county Hotel. Beautiful grassy hoppy and right level of acidity. Cool.

quite an average beer really, not a patch on the regular pale it replaced at my local, the brewers gold, but still does the trick. just didn’t feel much like a bitter on the way down.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Battersea Beer Festival, 2004.
First beer of the night, chosen from a sparse selection. Pale golden body alright, light and hoppy aroma with only the slightest of sulphurous notes.

Pale gold as expected. Aroma is smooth caramel. This is a light, easy drinking perfect session beer. Nice bitterness on finish.

Ossett brewery seems to specialise in pale coloured beers, and this is no exception. Very pale in colour, rather floral (American hops apparently) and refreshing. Some bite, but not very bitter. A fair, but unremarkable summer session beer. The Speaker, London SW1, July 2003

Amber/golden beer with a hopped and fruity aroma and flavour. An above average bitter.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2003
Cask fresh @ Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. Reasonable condition. Vanilla and caramel notes intrude unpleasantly on an otherwise fairly dull session beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2003
Pretty run of the mill light blond ale, with some hops aromatics (it says they use American hops, as to which ones, i don't know), light, grainy malts, some citric aromatic hops, some bitterness aswell, easy to drink.
