"A strong, clean tasting Golden Beer that's not too sweet and with a fresh flowery aroma."

Rusty golden colour with a bit of white head. Light body, on the verge of being watery. Has some malt sweetness and citrus zing. Have had better - this very evening in fact.

One of my all-time favorite beers......and I’m an American!! The thing I have missed most about the UK is this fine Cornish ale!

Draught (Black Door, Helsinki)
Welcome back, old friend! Looks beautiful, a classic pale ale, such a spongy head that’s nicely persistent. Soft honey malts, gentle twigginess. Sweetish bready malts, freshly toasted brown bread, some gentle bitterness. Finish softly bitter, just a hint. Smack in a bit of EKG in at flame out to crispen this up and it will be a brilliant bitter.

Sparkling clear, golden colored beer with white head. Resin and hops in aroma. Flower hints. The aroma is really fresh. Light bitterness, medium sweetness. Lightly carbonated, medium body, slick texture. Very drinkable.

Might be a good ale, but was not what I was in the mood for and ended up only finishing about quarter of the pint. I find golden ales hard to taste/rate after having had several more robust bitters.
