SarkyNorthener (1956) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask@thefoxglove, kirkburton. Hazy gold colour. Small fruit aroma. Taste is of mild grapefruit and bitter with a sourish aftertaste. An ok bitter but not one of the best purity brews.

On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden as expected with a nice frothy head. The nose has a creamy meadowsweet note and the taste confirms this and in fact there is a note that approaches custard. The palate is light to medium in structure and texture with a zingy finish. Overall, nice ale.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Cask by handpump at Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh (8 Sep 12) - clear golden diminishing white head, cereal malt aroma and flavour, bitter taste and aftertaste, more a bitter than golden ale

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Cask at GBBF, 7/8/12. Clear, light gold. Grainy tasting pale malt. Slightly herby hops, but not much in the way of hops. Mostly cereally taste, fairly clean. Light body. Faint floral aroma.

500ml Bottle. Aroma is hoppy and slightly citrusy. It pours averagely well and Is a golden colour with a medium quality and lasting head. Taste wise its quite a decent drink, hops, giving way to a slight citrus aftertaste. Its main problem is that its not a session beer and its not a feature beer either. Theres nothing wrong with it at all - but I could recommend better feature beers too.

StueyD (1160) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Pale golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. Very light citrusy aroma, lemony and some sweetness. Dry mouthfeel. Dry malt flavour to start then a lift lemony citrus fruit hop flavour comes through. The finish is weak. Tasted at the Wellington, Birmingham.

BlackHaddock (3779) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 27th Apr 2009, drank 10 Mar 2009. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint glass. Looked like a Lager/Pilsner, Pure Gold by name and looks it would seem. Good English beery smell, hops and barley mixing togethr like they should. A sweetness is present but not enough to turn the aroma sickly, just a hint of summer gardens and flowers. English Maris Otter and Cara Gold malts, hence the clour, the blend of Northern Brewer, Fuggles, Hereford Goldings and Styrian Goldings Hops ensure the taste follows the aroma to give a truely English feel to the taste and drinkability. The label goes on to say it has dry, bitter notes, it certainly does and it does it very well. I am rapidly likeing this breweries products. The body is solid for a 4.3% bitter and it has a lot more flavour than the colour suggests. This is one very well balanced beer and very easy to drink. Pity I couldn’t get the head to stay on the beer as I drank it.

tombyars (1362) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Slight sulphur note in the lemony hopped aroma. Clean crisp mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a juicy citric note of gooseberry, kiwi and lychees long in intensity. Strong dusty floral notes add to the citrusy lemon hops which give a sharp bitter bite to the long aftertaste. Clean zesty fruit flavours dry the palate with gooseberry still evident. A decent session Golden Ale which tastes far stronger than its ABV suggets.

Gary (1394) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2012
(cask @ Uppner Castle) Golden colour ,with subtle white flakes as a head. Citrus nose . In the mouth aromatic hops are refreshing , dry and with nice malt backbone. Not bad , but i’d rather drink lots of Bohemian Pils.
