Surprisingly decent lager. Crisp and good sweet malt with noticable hop presence, not too sure why it is classed as a Golden Ale on here though?

On keg at The Gurnards Head, Treen, Cornwall. Pale yellow gold, carbonated. Thinnish, malty with a wet cardboard type note, not a great deal of character really. Not for me.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2011
Heavily promoted to the lager market, this keg beer has become widely available in Cornwall. My first sample was mostly of a thin, boring lager at best as uninteresting as the big brands. The second sample of this hazy straw brew was much more problematic, full of diacetyl. Sampling a beer marketed as a surfer beer while at a surfer pub and having this sort of problem is unexpected and disappointing.

Golden with a thin head. Aromas are marmalade with lemon zest. Crisp with green apple. Low malts with lime coming through. Flavours are clean biscuit malts with lime zest and a dry, woody finish. Some sourness with peppery notes. OK.
