Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A rich golden coloured beer produced by blending optic malt, crystal wheat and a small amount of torridied wheat. Added to this are Goldings and Styrian Golding hops which give that distinctly light hoppy aroma and taste.

foxo82 (763) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from my Dad for Christmas. Headless, amber ale with a mild, sweetish, ginger and apple hops aroma. Tangy bitter taste, hoppy, dry but balanced enough to make this very drinkable. Lacking much finish - perhaps too abrupt. Good for lunchtime.

olsvammel (3803) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2012
Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. Crisp and fresh smell with a light aroma of pale bread. Similar taste. Easy to drink.

hirigalzkar (2404) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sample @ SBWF. Very strange golden ale. Notes of paper, vegtables and light malts. Watery. Boring.

downender (6636) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol. Golden with a slight white head. Sweetish apricot and tangerine aroma with some leafy hop. Flavours of caramel, more fruit and a relatively bitter finish. Ok.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Clear 500ml bottle best before April 2013: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 11th June 2012. As the name suggests, this is a golden/amber coloured beer, the head I produced was full at first but the off-white bubbles soon became a wisp and collar. The nose and taste were a well balanced mix of hops and malts: nothing strong or overpowering, just a pleasant flavour and feel to the brew. Easy to drink, semi-sweet mouthfeel with only a mild bitterness: alcohol content that is well hidden and the 4.5% suits it nicely.
