DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle from The Wine cellars. Filmy gold propping up a fast subsiding white head. Aroma of grass cuttings on a old rusty rake...lime jelly, some botanical hints and bramley apple pie filling leaking through. First impression; fizzing, watery, not much happening. Second impression; better, with some discreet soapy pine and Noble hop interest. Dunked biscuit finish, some peanut, sprinkle of sherbet. A bit tedious.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Pours a cloudy amber this time. Itís more toffee-ish this time on both the nose and taste. Also, the overall experience is greater than the sum of the parts. Original rating 28/03/11 5/3/5/3/12 33cl bottle. Golden with a hint of orange, it pours a nice head which hangs around a bit. The nose is oaty with a hint of pine or grass in the background. The taste is of more porridge oats, with little bit of grassy hops on the end. Good palate - substantial body which cleans nicely but not too bitter. Overall, a very enjoyable and sessionable beer if not one that blows you away.

Bright yellow, clear w/ some steady bubbles. not much on the nose. smells like a lager. slightly sweet and slightly malty. med body and slightly fizzy. Tastes like a lager but with a slight burnt cereal taste. interesting but not my favourite from Stewarts.

Cask (gravity dispense) at GBBF, day 4 on 4 August 2006. Attractive bronze / copper / ginger colour - not exactly gold. Very fruity but not without grip on the palate. Quite pleasant.

From bottle. Bright, clear golden colour with plenty of bubbles providing a good head that lasts. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel notes. Excellent flavour sweet and citrusy to begin with leading to a tasty bitterness that is satisfying. Overall an interesting ale that punched well above itís weight for me.

[cask at the Baillie, St Stephen Street, Edinburgh] Probably the pick of the Stewart beers, a fantastic hoppy golden ale on cask, and pretty good in the bottle. As the name implies it pours a mellow golden colour with a decent head (thanks to the sparkler). Lovely aromas of grapefruit and other citrus from the Tettnang hops. On the palate, hoppy and fruity, with a rising bitterness that leads into a very nice dry finish. Rivals Cairngorm Trade Winds in the Scottish Session Stakes, although loses out overall [10022008]

@ Barony Bar. Golden-brown colour. Pale malt on the nose and palate. Smooth, sweet, actually kind of bland. Very sraightforward brew.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
cask @ Baroney, Edinburgh. Dark gold with sparkler head. Some farmy and socky hops in the aroma smell stale. Also some white flesh fruit. Soft palate. Has some peach tea flavors; the herbal bitterness adds balance, but is a boring beer.

cask at Guildford Arms - Pours mostly clear golden with a bready malt aroma and taste. Itís a light, easy going brew with a bit of hops. While itís a damn sight better than drinking macro lagers, itís an average brew at best.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 Golden ale served by hand pump at the Last Post, Paisley on Friday 28 May 2010 - sweet tasting ale with a very pleasant citrus aftertaste.
