lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, - JUL 16, 2013
rather surprised by how good this was, never have expected much from the genre ’golden ale’ but this had plenty of orange citrus to provide interest and to back up the good malt base. pretty good.

RafeAU (326) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2015
Tasting at Plonk. Ratebeer "session IPA"? Definitely not - it’s a commonwealth golden ale. Golden pour, fruity hop aroma, cleansing bitterness. A nice example of a golden ale. Very sessionable.

Restrained grassy aroma in clear light golden fluid. Light clean taste is mildly hop forward with a smooth sustained finish. A nice beer - especially for its strength.

Garrold (2336) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Barely a head. Some stewed fruit to this, which I didn’t expect. Some tea, too. Not much else really. Drinks thin, with a light fruit bitterness. Soft carbonation. Finishes bitter, with some tannic tartness. A bit odd. Not for me, whatever it is.
