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.

thewolf (11312) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy yellowish orange with a smallm, creamy, white head. Okay duration. Soft malty aroma, some biscuits and good, sweet flowery hoppiness. A little bit of exotic fruits. Highish carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is quite fruity, grassy, grapefruity hops and flowers. Light dryness, some hay and oranges. A bit Saison-ish, actually.

downender (6635) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol. Bright gold coloured with a decent white head that left plenty of lacing. Aroma of hay and grassy hops. Flavour had some sweet malt and citrus with a decent dry finish. Has a lot more character than most English golden ales.

briancant (4) - Transylvannia, ROMANIA - AUG 21, 2007 does not count
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.
