Simon says ... The delights of a golden ale are limitless. Clean, crisp, hint of citrus - all essential. Those qualities make it a perfect drink to have with chicken. Bringing out the delicate flavours and adding an extra dimension to everything from a roast chicken to a Caesar salad. So donít put all of your eggs in one basket - save room for a bottle of my beer for chicken.

Bottle from Morrisons Birmingham. Nice session beer without being spectacular. Nice hoppy flavour with a citrus aftertaste. Would definitely drink again

Bottle from Tesco. As a vegetarian the best I could come up to accompany this was a packet of smoky bacon crisps. I canít say it enhanced the experience of the golden coloured ale. Thereís not much head and whilst it has a nice crisp and relatively smooth texture itís low in taste, which includes some pale ale tropical fruitiness.

Bottle quality save 99p. Amber colour halo white head. Aroma is weak. Taste is slight citrus honey balanced hop and malts. Medium to thin body medium carbonation. I was a naughty boy and had this with lamb casserole and Yorkshire puddings tut tut!

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Iím not one for this food pairing Nazism. So had this with turkey burritos just to be contrary. Looks alright; still orange gold with a skim of white. Thatís where the enjoyment ends. Nose of glue, matchbox and raffia. Stale papery wicker flavour with a lick of redeeming creamy malt. Hint of dank. Drinks like a flat tinned Greek or Russian macro lager. Not good.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from Tesco drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Itís quite a decent tasty golden ale. Some ok hop on the finish. I thought it was fine. Nit too exciting but fine.

RichTheVillan (6817) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from Tesco; cards on the Iím not eating chicken so I might not getting the full taste sensation, clear amber pour white head, lager and malt aroma, mostly grassy taste with some skunked up malt, wet cardboard.

zacgillbanks (4540) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from Morrisons, Byker. This is a pale golden beer with a light malty and grassy flavour, toffee notes and a fruity finish. Reminiscent of a bland holiday lager.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Brown 500ml bottle: BBD end of Apr 14. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 5th Nov 2013. Iíd cooked roast Chicken, Mediterranean roasted veg, roast Spuds and a spicy Ratatouille: ideal for this beer I thought (and it worked quite well). Pours a golden yellow, the head a thin white blanket of foam. Hints of citrus in the nose and taste, these went nicely with the meal and although Iím not usually a fan of golden citrusy brews this seemed to fit the occasion well. Not a lot going on elsewhere in the brew, apart from the citrus notes it was fairly forgettable to be honest. Tangy enough, but lacks real bite and depth. OK with Chicken.

jmgreenuk (7838) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle Asda. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin white head and low carbonation. The aroma is weak malt and a little hoppy. The palate is weak bitter with a light bodied watery palate.
