Aroma has caramel and citrus, butter. Looks like lager. Taste has citrus on top of malting. Nice bitterness. Long, dry finish. Apple, peach. Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Short head. Ok beer with enough taste.

imdownthepub (13040) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite heavily carbonated, but the pasteurisation isnít too severe. Fruity, light and reasonably fresh. CO2 burps though. Some lemon later on. Not bad.

Pours fizzy with a big head. Nice dark colour, particularly for a golden beer. Pleasant initial taste. Smooth, with a malty, biscuity taste and a hint of a bitter finish. Will definitely have another one of these.

great golden bear with lasting sudsy head. Nothing much aroma wise, but nice slightly sweetish fruity taste, followed by pleasant bitter taste. Although I wouldnt say its anything special, it was an enjoyable evening drink after a hard day in the garden. I would definately drink this one again.

500ml Bottle Aroma is slightly woody hoppy malty caramel with slight floral notes. Appearance is a very dark amber - much darker than one would expect from a golden ale. It pours averagely well with a lacey head. Quite a fizzy pint tho. Taste is malty with hints of toffee and fruit before giving way to a bitter finish. A session beer but there are much better.

A golden amber coloured beer with a thick white head. Biscuity, slightly sweet malty nose with a hint of honey. Dry mouthfeel. Dry, biscuity malt flavour, and again, there is a sweet honey flavour. There is a touch of citrus fruit in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
