Nothing gives Dorothy more pleasure than the succulent aroma of the two finest English hop varieties, Goldings and Fuggles. She selected these and Maris Otter pale malt for her Golden Ale as they’re naturally a winning combination.
The result is a crisp and zesty beer that is as comfortable served on its own as it is alongside chicken dishes, salads and pasta.

Bottle from my local ICA store. Pours clear golden, small creamy white head. Aroma is very weak and bland. Taste is more presence, with some citrussy hops over the light malty body.

foxo82 (784) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle. Slightly cloudy blond effort with patchy head. Disappointingly this has the waft of a macro lager about it - that non-descript, sweet malt aroma - and it tastes like one, too. It’s decent bitterness is hampered by the mass produced aftertaste and feel. Very forgettable.

Another dismal offering from Why Valley? My mate said... shit, like Carling. This is bland. Seriously not good enough. Haven’t got time for this. Ratebeer yawn. Give it up.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Medium high fluffy white quickly dying head. Hazy yellow body. Mild and rather weak malt hops aroma a dusty hint but actually it does not smell of much. In spite of the low alcohol percentage - which is probabaly the reason for the low ratings of my fellow countryment - this beer is actually quite tasty. The hops is clear and crisp and I do like it even though it is now powerful. Citric flavors are dominant and I do like the acidic to sour notes. Low carbonation. Long bitter finish. Come on friends it is actually very good!

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2012
2012: Clear golden, creamy ale. Stinging hoppy flavor in the aftertaste. Fine easy-drinking beer.

fdomig (516) - München, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Aroma is light fruits and light hops. Appearance is pale golden with a nice foam. Taste is light bitter and light sour. Has a bitter after taste and leaves a dry mouth feel. Overall a good Ale.
