Cask at the Union Tavern - Westbourne Park, London. Courtesy of Paddy during the W&E event. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam head. Bright and citrusy hops in the nose. Light sweet flavor with some grapefruit, straw, biscuits, citrus rind. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Balanced finish, more dry and lightly rindy citrus, basic pale and biscuity malt sweetness. Just what you want from a golden ale.

Bottle. Golden with a small head. Bitter with some citrus and a bitter finnish. An amazing amount of complex flavours with a lot of strength
considering its relatively low ABV.

Clear gold beer, good white head. Light semi dry palate. A fair bit of pale malt in which a little citrus hop resides. Light dry finish with a very light touch of bitterness. Weakest of the W&E beers.

Bottle at home courtesy of Theydon_Bois, cheers Colin!
Honey blonde with temporary fluffy cream head that soon collapses to a lacing. Peppery citrus nose. Sweet biscuit malt up front with lemon and passion-fruit following in behind. Medium carbonation. Touch of yeast esters and English hop bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Half Moon, Windlesham dispensed into a UK pint glass (Feb ’12).
Pours a clear golden blonde colour with a small frothy white head.
Bitter floral hopped aroma - wonderful, this was freshly tapped and as good it gets !
Very well hopped for a 3.8% session beer in my opinion, all citrus notes - pineapple, orange, grapefruit showing up. A little sweet malt flavour also come into play.
Light in body, low in carbonation leaves you with a tangy but not too bitter aftertaste.
Another great beer from Wndsor & Eton, in the true ’session’ mould.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Harp, London. Poured with a fine white head on a clear, bright amber body. Good crisp & juicy, lightly zesty hops all-round. Rather crisp & refreshing, soft carbonation, light to medium body, soft bittersweet - grassy hops & biscuity pale malts - finish. A solid, solid golden ale that really hit the spot after an all you can eat, salt & sugar loaded Chinese.
