jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt and weak hops. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bitter liqourice palate and a long rather unpleasant bitter finish. Can’t say I really enjoyed this too much. The aftertaste wasn’t good. It’s refreshing but the hops don’t really work for me. I need my pale ales to be a little more "pale"!

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2013
330 ml bottle purchased from The Tiddly Pomme, Faversham. A bit light, but pleasant aroma of citric hops. Nice and refreshing flavor of pale malt, citric fruit and some bitterness. Medium to light body – feels right and some bitterness in aftertaste. Decent and refreshing thirst quencher. Probably closer to an American Pale Ale than Bitter or IPA.

Gary (1294) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 cask @ Dickens fest Rochester. Not a bad hoppy Biiter @ all. Although this was golden ,it was not a golden ale , this is an oxymoron .A nice fruity hop texture ,dry’ish and sweet .

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Gravity at Battersea Beer Fest 2013. Bright golden yellow colour. Pleasantly fruity juicy hop character with a nice gently bitter finish. Lingering finish. A very enjoyable beer, you could drink a lot of this.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Cask at the Happy Man, Englefield Green - 17/08/12. Clear golden with a minimal white head. Hops, citrus and grass on the nose. Sweet malt, grass, earhty hop tones in the taste, quite farmy. Lightish body, fairly wet, but worked well for this beer resulting in a refreshing crisp finish.

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2012
Cask (Bell & Crown, Canterbury)
Slight tea aroma, later a bit acetic. Looks abit thin. Watery palate, slightly sulfery taste, otherwise a dull bitter. Slight acetic in taste too. A touch of citrus can’t overcome the acetic component. OK milky grains, but minerally. Clearly not at its best.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Cask at the Claret. It pours pale golden yellow, with a thin foamy white head. The nose is cheddar cheese, hints of sulphur and some grass. The taste is lemony soap, zesty, grass, touch of pepper and leaf, with a very dry finish. Thinnish body and soft carbonation. Very so-so.

Draught at Seven Stars, Bristol, part of their Kent ale festival. Golden ale, fairly bitter with citrus flavours

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2012
Cask: golden to deep golden, small white head with a good lacework; herbal to peppery hoppy nose, also a bit leafy with traces of vegetables and grapefuits; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; lingering dry grapefruity and hoppy finish. A bit thin , but all in all quite good…
