13th October 2015
The Royal Standard, Lyme Regis. Cask. Clear gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and smooth and has decent fine carbonation. Smooth malts, slightly tangy. Tangy dried fruits. Traces of tangy lemon and orange. Well buried esters. Smooth finish. Somewhere between a bitter and a golden, more at the bitter end of the scale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Harp, Covent Garden, London, 28 Nov 2014) Golden amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of apricots, citrus and dusty hops. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, caramel, and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

Cask in Dorset. This was pretty bad . Not really floral or hoppy like u would want in a golden ale and with the shitty fruity yeast strain these guys insist on being the god awful main character ,texture and profile of 90 % of their beers. Honestly, one of the worst golden ales ive had . Someone go down to
stupid Dorest and tell these rednecks about the craft beer revolution .

Bottle purchased in Eype, Dorset. Golden colour with decent white head. Biscuit and malt aromas. Caramel finish. Mildly carbonated. Underwhelming start but complexity builds into a smooth finish - a nice beer that I wouldn’t mind having again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Typical golden ale and very difficult to draw out any particularly distinguishing features. You either like it or just feel it is too bland. Has its place I guess.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Who’dhavethoughtit, Glastonbury, 5th June 2011. Clear golden amber with a bit of bright white head. Seemingly no aroma! Sweet, very slightly honeyed taste. Nice condition but this is bland, ’nothing’ beer - unimpressive.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A mid golden coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light, biscuity malt aroma, caramel and syrup. Medium dry mouthfeel. A medium malt flavour, a biscuity dryness is matched by a caramel and butterscotch sweetness. There is an underlying zesty hop flavour that becomes more apparent towards the end.
Tasted as "Lamb & Flag Gold" at the pub.
