"Exquisitely Lovely Golden Ale"
Brewed to celebrate the Lake District’s most beloved author, Alfred Wainwright. A full and golden coloured ale with delicate fruit flavours and subtle sweetness.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
A golden ale with a thick receding white head. In aroma, predominating caramel malt with faint herbal hops. In mouth, a dryish lager like beer, with crisp malt, light caramel, faint British hops, quaffable, but not really a bitter. Bought at the MLCC, April 2011.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Wenig bitterer Antrunk, die Hopfigkeit steht mild aber erfrtischend im Vordergrund. Dies wandelt sich aber im Mitteltel, in dem die Bitterkeit stärker wird, aber in angenehmem Rahmen bleibt. Die Hopfigkeit dümpelt dagegen nun auf milderen Niveau im Hintergrund, sie reicht aber noch, um einen passenden Hintergrundton zu geben. Spritziges, etwas getreidiges und semiges Finish. Stimmig! 9/9/9/9/7/9

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 22, 2011
0.5 l bottle from City-Market Keljo, Jyväskylä. Copper color. Floral and resiny hop aroma. Dryish taste with floral, fruity and resiny hop flavor on top, minerally bitterness in finish. Light bodied. Could have more malt backbone and less mineral taste. Refreshing.

piscator34 (1948) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of orange marmalade, biscuity pale malt, and wet stones. The orange marmalade quality persists in the mouth as well, along with elements of quince, cut grass, and more pale malt. Light bodied. Delicate and moreish, but a bit too much carbonation for this style.

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
Light golden colour with a head that lasts quite well through the drink. Floral nose and a dry, earthy taste with citrus hints. Good beer, more of a golden ale than a classic bitter.
