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.

Scopey (11797) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle from Palmer’s. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is biscuit, cereal, bread, grainy action, caramel and dull sweetness. The taste is crisp, grainy, malty, cereal, slightly watery, biscuit, bread and porridge with a short, dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. A pretty basic malt - driven golde. Not gr8.

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.

Svesse (7701) - 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 (1820) - Brentford, 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 (2344) - 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.

Cask at a pub in Oxford. Flowery smell and slight metallic. Similar taste. A bit watery and bland.

Vladivostok (416) - 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.
