Cask@The Salmon, Leicester. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is quite grassy, and the flavour is dry with a light bitterness. Overall a good golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Cask at Chippenham Beer Festival. Clear golden-amber. Floral and lemon flavours. Modern, but not over the top, just a pleasant refreshing ale with a decent body and flavour. An enjoyable one to finish the fest with.

Cask at Priory Arms, South Lambeth. A golden body topped by a bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Mild malt-fruity nose. Taste of peach, pears and mild caramel. Mid-dry malt-fruity end. Average, more or less (London 29.11.2015).

Fra cask på Priory Arms Stockwell 29 Nov 15. Aprikosfarget. Lavt skum. Beskjeden fruktaroma. Uklar. Lett syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken mørk frukt. Litt syrlig etter hvert.

FatPhil (14159) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2015
Cask (Hopbine, Cambridge) (6:3-:5:3-:11=2.8--)
Sweet honeyish golden ale aroma. Bland light malts. So bland in the almost non-existent finish. Ugh, I don’t like golden ales when they’re so bland.

ManVsBeer (8777) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Blonde more than gold with a creamy head. Has hops, but there’s plenty of malt in here too. A session ale in style and taste.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Cask at The White Hart Tap, St Albans on 7 Jul 2012. Poured a very hazy golden colour, with a halo of white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and soft fruit. Apricots and pineapple in the flavour, with biscuity malt. Finish was lemongrass, yeast and bready malt.

BlackHaddock (6394) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Cask half-pint in Far From The Madding Crowd, on 18th Oct 2014, just before going to the CAMRA Oxford beer festival. Golden body, bright and clear, the head white and lasting. Nose is malt sweet with a citrus bent, as is the taste. Drying finish to this fairly light flavoured sweet brew, nice.

Cask gravity at the Watford RFC beer fest. Golden light amber colour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is standard biscuit and light berry hop and some English yeast esters. Palate is light and slight chalky carbonation. Flavour is berry hop biscuit malt and English yeast esters. Pretty bog standard.
