minutemat (1761) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Gravity Cask @ Oswestry Food & Drink Festival July 14. Pours deep gold, bubbly head. Nice fruity taste, soft malt, mild bitterness, decent quaffer and perfect for sipping whilst walking round the stalls.

AshtonMcCobb (2697) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2013
50cl bottle from the Spar in Rhos on Sea. Pours golden, some head and gentle carbonation - it’s bottle conditioned so try to avoid the small amount of sediment on the end. This pretty much gives what you’d expect from the Golden Ale style as it has honey, lemon and pale malt in abundance on both the nose and the taste. A little bit more lemony sharpness would be good though and this would add balance to the palate. Overall, solid.

imdownthepub (10481) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Slightly grainy, malty beer, there is a touch of rawness about it. Some apricot fruitiness, squidgy fruit rather than crisp. Lasting bitterness later on. Reasonable.

dogbomb (948) - ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Slightly cloudy (live-beer!) gold ale with a decent white head. Nose is sweet and fruity - peach and tangerine. Quite watery and light in the mouth, but there’s some nice flavours: peach, lemon, tangerine, some wheat. All very light and the finish is gentle bitter. Doesn’t outstay it’s welcome and imparts just enough flavour to make it interesting.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
The beer is named after the old (Cambrian) railway line that runs alongside the brewery, the gold bit being the beers colour! Bottle Conditioned bitter, brown 500ml best before Jan 2009, drank Jun 2008. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase type pint glass. My second beer of a Shropshire Beer Reviewing Evening. Colour is an old, dull gold with plenty of bubbles popping up towards the full foaming white head, looked good to me. No sediment left the bottles base but the condition of the beer was ’spot on’. Very little aroma, so hops and yeast, but not much more to my nose. Dry, hoppy and refreshing. The dryness intensifies in the aftertaste/finish, but not cardboard dry, more a satisfying clean pallet type feel. Yet another fine beer from a microbrewery in Shropshire.

Full bodied, texture nice in the palate, not much flavour but by no means a bad beer.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2009
Got this beer on cask at The Marlborough Arms in Chester. Appearance: Dark hazy golden honey in colour, with a small creamy head. No carbonation. Aroma: Sweet on the nose, with a subtle hoppiness. Clear notes of grapefruit. Taste: Peppery sweetness at the start, with a slight sugary hit. Mild honey. There is a bitter floral ending, with clingy hop flavours. Mouthfeel: Medium body, slightly thin, with a kind of greasy texture. Drinkability: Good hearty British bitter. Very drinkable and moreish. I will definitely be looking at the other beer produced by Stonehouse Brewery.

Cask @ GBBF 2009. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with some hints of caramel and some fruity hints. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter finish.
