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.

A buxom full bodied ale, the quality you’d expect from Wye Valley brewery. Clean taste, no nasty afters.... works well with roasted badger with a tureen of otter giblets and vole outings on an autumnal afternoon.

berkshirejohn (4207) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2007
500ml bottle from Threshers - bottle conditioned. Warm gold colour with a rampant loose cream coloured head; heady aromas of honey, citrus and caramel; quite sharp citrus flavour to start, then the sweetness develops and overtakes; leaving a sticky, sweet caramel finish, with a slightly burnt dryness. An impressive beer - and the labels not bad either!

Cask. Pale amber with a good size white head. Little scent, slightly hoppy. Quite bitter and also quite sweet. Citrus fruit, caramel and some malt but a bit too sweet for my taste.

500 ml bottle courtesy of geth_in_beer. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit muted on this one, though. Light pale malt and a bit of straightforward earthy hops. Moderate bitterness with a soft earthy finish. A bit pithy.

Dark gold or pale amber. Big frothy white head. I just can’t define the aroma. Sweet cardboard? And the taste? Malt? Plus something else. What? Fruity sourness, I think, with some dryness at the finish. I’m totally confused after rating my first Doppelbock a few minutes ago...

From bottle. Lovely fresh fruity aroma just makes me want to drink it. Clear golden appearance with good carb and slight head. A well balanced beer with a flavour of fruit and a nice bitter palette. Overall i enjoyed this alot, a very good beer.

Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle. Clear Golden beer, malty and hoppy aroma but really nice citrus tang crisp bite to this beer and with a slight sourness leading to a dry finish. Can’t say that I have ever been to struck on Wye Valley but my opinions may change a little as this really is a very good bottled beer.

Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is dry and light and the flavour is very dry with a touch of fruity sourness finishing with a deep dryness. Overall an average to below par beer.

Cask@The Roebuck, Richmond, London. Quite nice. Some juicy, earthy bitter hops, and a dry finish. Fresh, with some light aromatics, summery sort of ale, pleasant, easy drinking.
