3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
May 2007: Drank in the ’Mad Bishop and Bear’ on the top level at Paddington Station, London. It was the guest beer at this well known Fullers Pub.
Poured into the correct pint sleeve glass with the Tribute logo on both sides.
Good solid amber colour, clear and bright, the white head stuck to the glass as I drank my way down the pint.
The aroma was purely of hops, as was the overall taste and mouthfeel, a very nice beer indeed. I had forgotten how much I liked this beer, glad I found it again: had it many times since this review was put on BA back in May 2007.

Cask. Clear bronze with a steady cream head. Malty smell, like biscuits. Mouthfeel is smooth and unleashes more biscuits. Quite salty, with a mild bitter finish. Not the best, bit drinkable.

Tight white head, fruity aroma, very light and golden as name suggests – very acceptable drink if lacking a bit of bitterness, but certainly one to try again in the summer

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in May 2006. Cask, handpump dispense.Clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a juicy flavour of pink grapefruit zesty in the mouth and digestive biscuit. Hop resins give a lengthy bitter aftertaste with aromatic floral notes. Finish is dry but sweet marmalade fruit is evident along with the pithy grapefruit present in the palate. An ok session bitter.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Golden Eagle. Typical bronze colour ale. Have to say I don’t really get the point of many Cornish beers - as pointed out in the pub by Buggins this was indeed quite smooth and was a good session beer, but it was very forgettable, I guess a hint of buttery malt and very restrained hopping.

nice clear bronze colour with a light white head . Lovely fruity citrusy hoppy aroma . Pleasant light semi sweet fruity taste with a long finish with dryness and some bitterness coming through . A nice light flavourful pint - good for a session
