oh6gdx (25337) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
Cask@Junction Tavern, London. Coppery golden colour with a small head. Aroma is bready, herbal and doughy with some mild cooked vegetables as well. Flavour is rather similar with some doughy notes too.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Must be one of the palest Golden Ales in the UK, a very pale straw colour, almost verging on platinum blonde. Noted floral on the nose with elderflower present. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts gives a strong juicy citric flavour of tart grapefruit overall. Dusty hop resins add a bitter bite to the short aftertaste - but not too dry nor cloying. Finish is rather light and fragrant with floral resins present in the mouth. A decent session Golden Ale.

Fin (9594) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2008
Cask at the Bookbinders Arms, Oxford, 06-09-08 Pours pale gold, clean nose but actually also a little bit soapy. This is quite tasty with dry biiter finish. Its ok.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2007
Cask-conditioned at the Cornubia, Bristol, 16/10/07. Very inoffensive golden ale. Pleasant to look at, with a slight hay aroma. Flavour had some summer fruits before a hint of a dry finish saved the day. Ok.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2007
Cask at Wetherspoons, Milton Keynes. Unusually for this bar, no sign of a sparkler. Still very much on the cold side. No aroma to speak of. A little fruit and a final hoppy bite, but not much else. Watery and disappointing for a Springhead beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask up the Junction. Bland blonde looks (reminds me of a woman I know...) Eggy farty aroma. Oily grill over spill flavour. Fatty and much too eggy. Very poor.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Didnít note where I had this, and now I canít remember. Copper orange with a small layer of sudsy white. Slightly farmy aroma with blackberry sweetness. Flavor runs along the same lines, adding a bit of spice and candied oranges. Nice soft mouthfeel. Decent ale, but a bit more depth would make it more compelling.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2006
In both taste and araoma, cornish sweetish malts, bittering hops though very little taste or aroma off the hops.
