berkshirejohn (4813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
50cl bottle from Aldi. A pale straw colour with a billowing white head; musty corn syrup aroma; thin grainy body; and a sweet finish. No different to any cheap Euro-lager.

harrisoni (14345) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle from Aldi. Clear pale gold colour lasting white head. Slightly pukey pale malt. Some hop on the finish. Slightly lemony. Reminds me of a not very good German helles.

Gary (1502) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottled; low boost golden ale time ; Good nose kinda grassy floral hops mixed with bready malts . this resembles a pils to look @... dranks like everything i mentioned with a crisp dry finish , not bad considering wat it is .

Slight lemon aroma, but very non descript pale ale, a disappointing brew from the brothers.

undercurrent25 (1550) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a golden colour. Taste is floral and light. Nothing special really, standard blonde ale

Weefannybaws (112) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi. Not much in the way of aromas. Slight citrus taste, but overall, very bland. Refreshing, but unremarkable. Perfect with crisps or nuts

allmyvinyl (4796) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi. Pours pale gold, thin white head. Big lemon citrus aromas, light vegetal tang. Taste is lemon, light pale malt. Crisp finish. Nice.

flying_pig (1048) - SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi’s (£1.50):
I am a big fan of Williams Brothers beers but sadly this one failed to deliver and can be considered nothing better than a disappointment from the brewery. The beer stopped short of proving undrinkable but I wouldn’t really class it as enjoyable down to the fact it was so basic and uninteresting with little more than a mildly hoppy, bitter taste that could have been any other golden ale I’ve tried in the past; I’d sooner go back to countless others from the brewery before picking this one up again I’m afraid.
