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

Estebanik (358) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Piany brak. W aromacie leśne, trawiaste aromaty chmielowe, lekkie nutki słodowe. W smaku wyraźne słodowe nuty, ale i tak jest nieźle nachmielone, jak na angielskie golden ale. Pustawe to, ale i tak dobre, jak na standardy stylu.

KW92 (736) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 30, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, dość trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Typowy aromat dla Golden Ale, świeże nuty ziołowe oraz żółte jabłka, słodowość.
SMAK: Tutaj już przewaga słodów. Kontra cytrusowa - nieprzyjemna ściągająca.
OGÓLNIE: Aromat może nie zapowiadał fajerwerków, ale dawał nadzieję na coś przyzwoitego - niestety rzeczywistość okazała się zgoła inna.

imdownthepub (11929) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Telegraph Inn, Bridlington, E.Yorks. Gold with white head. Simple malty, fruity Golden Ale with a slightly tart edge. Some bitterness, some herby hop notes. It’s okay.

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, 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.

Holmen2 (2181) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2015
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 (4200) - 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 doesn’t merit it.
