MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This Golden Ale’s rich honeyed cereals develop a cushy feel, balanced out by leafy hops and their white pepper-like finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the misty dark blond.
-Leafy hop bitterness is perfect to offset the chewy malts.
-Malts are as generous as the hops in this one.
-Drinkability is good even though the mouthfeel is on the hefty side for what is billed as a quencher.

On cask at The Liverpool Arms, Conwy.

Aroma is strong hops with some coriander. Has a modest head and orange body with heavy carbonation. Flavour is strong coriander with hints of hop and hazelnut. Medium finish. Not a bad craft brew but middling overall.

Draft - light straw, little aroma. Clear, small white head. Easy on tongue and in mouth. Ok tasting.

Cask, The King’s Head, Leicester. Golden with a lacy foam. Mellow honey and lemon with sweet grain. Herbal with a vegetable leaf bitterness. OK.

Golden color. Medium carbonation. Biscuit malt aroma, light herbal hoppiness. Lingering, clean hoppy flavor with a light caramel start. Finishes dry. Very solid blonde.

Pours light golden straw, good carbonation. Head disappears quick. On the nose suggestion of an interesting beer to follow. White whine delicate floral. First sip dispels any such hope. Water thin, suspicion of dextrose to boost ABV. Nasty flat beer twang, this has been oxygen contaminated or filled from a stale vat. Shame the label is great.

Cask at the Plough, Harborne. Pours light gold with a small head. Aroma is grainy straw. Taste has grain straw throughout with lemon on the aftertaste.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Cask from The White Lion, Disley, Cheshire, £3.10/pint. Good looking beer, golden with thick, white head. Smells of not much but tastes of a lot more, floral hoppiness balanced with blonde style, wheaty malts. Decent.

Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is hopped and bitter, and the flavour is bitter with toffeeness. Overall a reasonable golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
