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

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..

deanso (5727) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2012
Cask at JDW Manchester. Thin white head. Clear golden pour. Tastes like a porter but looks like a bitter. I almost said you’ve poured the wrong beer ;-) Hoppiness in the aftertaste. A very interesting beer. Well done Titanic brewery!

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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
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.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 6 Nov 2012. Poured a lightly hazy golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of big malt, vanilla and golden syrup. Some flowery hop flavours, with bready malt and treacle. Finish was peal, mango and toasted malt.

berkshirejohn (4674) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Cask at the John Russell Fox (JDW), Andover. Pale amber with a ring of white head; rich apricot jam aroma; heavy, grainy, body, slightly sour with some fruity flavours - peach perhaps - and a trace of honey; some light herbal hops laregely fail to add any bitterness, leaving a biscuity finish. Satisfying, but also disappointing.
