Cask; Seasonal - April to October. Also available bottled.
The ultimate catch, a refreshing golden pale ale with a fruity bitterness & lingering aftertaste. Certainly a beer to help create those one that got away stories!
Brewed with Wold grown malts and hopped with the fruity Cascade and Goldings hops.

A nice crisp light ale. Very refreshing with just the right amount of amber malts to balance the good dose of Cascade hops. Light bodied, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołůw, POLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle. Weak, citrusy/grassy/floral aroma, watery taste, notes of cardboard. The nicely underlined bitterness saves it somewhat but it still is an uninspiring brew.

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Pours clear and pale golden in colour with a white head. Fruity and floral aromas and a slight grassiness. Refreshing bitter taste with a subtle hint of spice and an unwelcome soapiness. Fruity, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle contributed by, and shared with, EMJ at OSB 08.04.15. Clear golden. Diminishing off-white head. Aroma of soft hops, canned fruit, lime and pale malt. Sweet malt in fruity taste, with moderate and slightly metallic hops.

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - grassy and biscuity. Taste - a nice blend of citrus, grass and dry biscuits again. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - I would consider this a Bitter. In fact, some of the complexity in it, makes me think of Premium Bitter even if the ABV doesnít merit it.

Cimbasso (328) - - NOV 17, 2014
Sampled from the cask at the John Bairdís Yorkshire Beer Festival. Golden colour with a whitish head. Very mild aromas of marmalade and biscuit malts. Mildly citrus flavours. This sample is very slightly sour - just on the turn - so probably not fair to judge it. It seems a little thin, without the fresh, zesty flavours that I would expect from a Golden Ale.
