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.

14.11.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Ica Karmsundgata. Golden colour without carbonation. Soft tasteless beer that totaly lacks carbonatuion and freshness. Spoiled I think and not good.

Theydon_Bois (16853) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Cask at the Barrels, Hereford, 17/10/13. Clear golden with a thin off white covering. Good lacing ensues. Nose carries light chemical notes, grass, fruits. Taste comprises orange, citric fruit, toasted malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the finish. Ok GB, the chemical notes lower the score for this one a few notches. This was one of 5 Wye Valley cask ales I had at the Barrels this evening and there were no off notes on any of the others.

500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with big white head. Mild fruity aroma. Not much flavor either, some soft pale malt and mild fruity bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Drinkable but not exiting, pretty dull actually.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. A clear one, golden in color and with a white head. Some lacings. Pale malts and fruityness in the aroma. Rather boring. The same goes for the flavor, with some bitterness. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. Overall, just boring. 131018
