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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
