COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Special;
This special brew, for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival, is something a little different: a beer using the ingredients designed to create the characteristics of a traditional porter, yet light in colour. The result is a golden beer, with a robust sweetness balanced by swathes of American hops, giving a smooth and powerful flavour, with a crisp finish. Hops used: Cascade, Northdown, Yakima Galena

Crosse Keys Spoons. Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is smooth with mild minerally carbonation. A little malt cream. Reasonable hops - clean citrus - lemony. Nice sherbet tang underneath. Neutral finish. Nothing like a porter - not even close. But an all right beer.

Leighton (11833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a wimpy, white foam head. Mostly crisp straw, some lemon rind, a bit of pale malt sweetness. Some astringency. Light bodied with carbonation. Moderately bitter to finish with light grass and citrus rind, some white sugar. Meh.

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Initially fairly tart and fruity, sour plums perhaps, it does dry a little, but still a little sweetish. It’s ok but I wouldn’t rush back.

Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 01/11/12. A golden beer with an off-white head and lace. The aroma has creamy vanilla notes. Tastes flowery with more vanilla. Herbal notes. A nice beer where there is good hoppy notes too. I have no idea why it’s called a golden porter and glad that RateBeer has the sense to class it as a golden ale of which it’s a pretty good example.

Rune (8467) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2012
One-third pint measure from cask at The Penderels Oak, High Holborn. Patchy surface to an unclear copper coloured body. Dry fruity and pale malty aroma . Notes of plums and honey to the taste buds added by earthy malts. Very dry, bitter ending. Alright, however a bit disappointing (JDWs real-ale festival, London 01.11.2012).

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Golden with an off white head. Aromas are lemon peel with apricot and toasted malts. Woody with spiced tea and hints of petrol. Flavours are sweet peach followed by grapefruit and lemon bitterness. Quite gritty on the palate with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Fairly interesting.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask handpull, The Larry (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Solid, rounded, lemon-zested tang. Orange peel and pepper over biscuit crumbs. Hints of Sorachi-like old shrivelled tangerines and anise. Grass and herbs in the blender. Good tangy, husky, perfumed but bitter linger. Thick-collared gold draped with milky lace. Ripe tang of satsuma jelly, perfumed coriander on nose. Bit heavy on the perfume but hard to leave alone..

downender (6521) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Golden coloured, with a lacy white head. Sweet, tangerine fruit, with some vanilla and roasted malts, leading to dryish finish with a trace of fag ash. Good.
