Martin243 (759) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Two bottles bought from Lidl. Having read some ratings I wasn’t expecting much. Well, It poured bright gold with a dense white head that lasted all the way through. Sweaty aroma and a yeasty, metallic taste with a bit of cereal that wasn’t unpleasant. Tasted more like a lager than a golden ale however; The major issue for me was carbonation. Really gassy, I was struggling with the second bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2011 Draught at Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm, on December 13, 2011
As "Youngs London Gold"
Clear golden color, or copper (in bad light), small off-white head. Buttery, creamy, malty, grainy, caramel taste. Metallic and apple aftertaste. Prolonged dry bitterness. MEdium thin to thin mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Malty, fairly weak scent. A tad bit boring perhaps, but it has great "hinkabilitet"!
