from a cask at The Harp in London. Pours as a red golden ale. Thick and creamy malt taste. Little to no head and subtle nose at a indiscriminate level.

Svesse (6734) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2015
(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.

Gary (1508) - Piss-ant Valley, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2015
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 .

niquillis (1427) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
On cask at Tudor Arms, Slimbridge. Clear golden with white head. Good for it’s style, a light golden session ale. Hint of butterscotch, good level of hops. Decent

campbega (94) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
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.

olsvammel (3834) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Cask at a pub in Oxford. Flowery smell and slight metallic. Similar taste. A bit watery and bland.

Vladivostok (302) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
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.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
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.

StueyD (1345) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
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.

jjsint (1162) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask @ Prince of Wales, Southampton. Mid-gold with white megahead. Aroma of yeast, buttermilk, bananas. Taste is sweet with an acrid kick. Too much Gennessee’s about it, and not enough good English cask ale. Palmers are capable of much better than this.
