Red brown colour. Very floral aroma. Quite a soft and malty flavour with a good kick of hop in the finish.

Bottled. An amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of nettles, spices, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and nettles, leading to a dry and lightly spicy finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s in London. Pours copper amber. Aroma of light roast malt and floral. Med body. Flavor is light roast malt with some sharp bitter. Could be a mix of citrus floral. Too sharp for floral I’d think. It’s not tasteless for sure. Good session ale? I really like the way the bitter builds in the finish.

50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Not sure if this is the same beer as the Asda Golden Ale, seems more citrussy to me. Clear gold in colour with a rapidly fading white head; lightly citrus aroma; some caramel malts. biscuits, and a crisp, fresh, dry, citrus hop finish. Really clean and fresh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 1) 29/11/10. Brilliant bronze, bright white foam. Fizz-sodden aroma of caramel, tea, rabbit hutch and gentle berry fruit. Prickling fizz, hop dryness, sherbet on cardboard...then some decent bread and creamy malt notes lingering long after the swallow. Ash and good jellied hop on the burp. Decent, but damaged. 536312=2.9.
2) Brilliant bronze, slim white neck. Aroma is pure, fresh-plucked English hop off the bine; sherbet, musk, bay leaf custard, cinnamon, Turkish Delight. A showcase for English hop exactly like my homegrown. Decent, mellow, spicy hop flavour like allspice on a Rich Tea biscuit. Some apple and berry fruit. Smear of chocolate. Too fizzy but pretty good. Got to hand it to Sheps- they seem to have mastered the art of pasteurising without destroying the character of their beers. 836314=3.4.

Wonderful peaty aroma, with some apricot. Color is orange./amber/golden. Nice mild bitterness on the tongue. Soft carbonation. Flavor makes up for somewhat watery feel in mouth.

With a malty town this English Bitter is simple yet flavorful. It appears dark brown in town with a simple small head. It has a simple taste that lingers and leaves you coming back for more.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Kidlington, Oxon, consumed 07.10.10 Pours light amber, the aroma is a little leafy, taste is touch sweet with a buzzy sort of bitterness, sharp edge, its fine, finish is a bit of soft. Taste is just a touch clinical, strange floral edge in the mouth also. [a] A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Sainsburys Grimsby. Amber gold, big fluffy long lasting white head and moderate condition. Sweet caramel malt and fruity earthy hops in the nose, quite soft in the mouth with a good balance of sweet malt and earthy hops, slight nuttiness in the finish but the earthy hops linger and dominate
