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.

olsvammel (3027) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Cask at a pub in Oxford. Flowery smell and slight metallic. Similar taste. A bit watery and bland.

Vladivostok (230) - 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 (1136) - 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 (723) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, 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.

Theydon_Bois (8081) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Cask at the Half Moon, Windlesham, 15/09/13. Almost clear golden with a good sized off white head. Nose is summer fruits, light hops, melon, straw. Taste comprises toasted malt, cantaloupe melon, citrus notes, light perfume. Mediudm bodied, soft carbonation, sweet finale. Decent GB.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Golden with an initially large foam. Aromas are caramel and wheat with lemon. Bready yeast with a low nutty lager character. Flavours are sweet caramel with light, leafy hops and mellow lemon. White bread yeast with some light jamminess. Pleasant but quite simple.

wimpyjoe (3694) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Burnley Beer Festival. Golden with a small head. Has a malt hopped aroma with some smooth toffee notes and some fruits too. A session ale with a medium-high bitterness.

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013
Cask @ The Ship - Swanage, Dorset. Deep golden body with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt and citric fruit. OK light and refreshing malt flavor, fruity and floral. Not much bitterness. Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Decent, straight forward and a bit boring.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Pretty nice - straw colour, bitter, with scant carbonation. A light whiff of malt and apricots. Tasted great sat in the sun in Dorset.
