A blend of pale optic and chocolate malt giving that rich amber colour producing a taste with malty overones. The smooth hoppy characteristic is produced by the use of Goldings hops.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2008
Dark brown colored with little yellow head. Licorice and mild spices in fruity aroma, rich one. Thin to medium bodied. Dry flavor with lemon and some licorice too, aftertaste has thin spices still. Weird but good one.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2008
Cask at íSpoons, Milton Keynes. Amber with a large white head, making it difficult to discern aroma, probably itís malty. Taste was sweet and malty with some pleasant breadiness but also a curious, slightly stale flavour of mothballs which I occasionally note at this particular JDW, and which I have always suspected to be a cleaning issue. Some bitterness.

Cask@Kittys (fastest caskchange & linewashing Iíve seen). Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is wood, mild sweet matls and a bit sourness. Flavour is wooden, quite nutty and dry erathyness. Aftertaste has some mild fruityness too. Really pleasant bitter.

Cask-conditioned at the Knights Templar (JDW), London WC2 16/5/08. Reddish-amber colour with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel and red fruit with some earthy hops. Flavour was sweetish, with plenty of doughy malt, fruit and a long, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

imdownthepub (12585) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Copper coloured with white head. Iím always a bit wary with Ramsbury beers now, I havenít rated them too highly in the past, but this one is not bad, its a fully flavoured darker roasted bitter, fruity and grainy. Some balancing hops rather than stand out flavours. Overall, reasonable.

Bottle, picked up at Millets Farm shop near Abingdon, Oxon, a week or so ago. Pours a ruby colour, quite tasty some nice fruitiness and malt with maybe just a touch of a hoppy note in the aroma, much better than the Gold I had last week.
