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.

imdownthepub (10124) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2009

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2011
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.
