Subtle golden beer - pale in colour and light on the palate with the distinctive hoppy Woodforde’s finish. Deliciously golden and refreshing.

500ml bottle from our kid. Pours clear golden orange, nae head. Aromas of barley orange sweets. Taste is pish, frankly. More sweeties than beer. Not my thing at all.

July, 2014 Jubilee, Norwich. Some caramel, some hop smudge, a kiss in the direction of citric. A muddy summer drink. OK.

Fin (8172) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Cask gravity at The Hub at Whittlesey, Saturday 10th January 2015 on Whittlesey Straw Bear weekend (we stopped at Peterborough Central Travelodge) Fairly run of the mill golden. This lacks bitterness and not so hoppy. I guess that I should have known with Woodfordes not to have high hopes. Pretty boring. A5 A4 T6 P2 Ov11 2.8

SilverfoX (631) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
spruce, dough aromas from a pale gold body and a thin white head, quite smooth and bitter hops in the mouth refreshing aftertaste (ive just had a kebab so it was mightily needed) not bad but bland.

BlackHaddock (4687) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Couple of pints or so from a Polly Pin at a party on 7th June 2014, some 6 miles from the brewery. Light golden with a wisp and collar. Pleasant enough blend, with the malts just about winning in both the aroma and taste stakes. Mildly bitter finish, ideal session garden ale on a warm Norfolk day.

Grumbo (809) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Cask handpull at the Woolpack, Debenham (before seeing excellent The Floe in concernt). Light amber colour, with a very small, soon dissipating, white head. Citrus honey aroma. Medium body, with soft carbonation.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Vine Norwich 21/08/12. A golden coloured beer with barely any head. A sweetish golden ale with some lemony hops. Malts are a bit too sweet. Drinkable enough but needs more citricity.

tombyars (1453) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this golden ale in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Excellent appearance with crystal clear orange amber colouration and a thick creamy white head. Floral hops evident in the short aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malts give succulent lychee fruit notes with a delicate hint of elderflowers. Dry hop resins come through in the well balanced aftertaste and this continues through into the finish. An ok summer session ale that is both light and refreshing. Well recommended.

Draught in The Westbourne, Hove. Citrus and straw nose. Honey and lemon in the taste. Average at best.
