Cask; Regular.
Finest quality pale malt carrying choicest west coast American hops to create a beautifully balanced pale ale. The aroma is fragrant, fruity. The flavours are mellow with hints of bubblegum and refreshing grapefruit. The finish is bittersweet, without being cloying.
This is consistently Abbeydale Brewery's biggest selling beer.
First brewed in 1996 it was designed as a premium pale bitter to show drinkers of a very big and old-established brewery's offering just what a beer could taste like... After a bit of name-calling and throwing of stones, it had no trouble in establishing a reputation as the genuine Sheffield Gold Beer. It is now available as a "regular" beer at a number of outlets in and around Sheffield.

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Clear pale gold beer. Light palate. Light fruity hop, no bitterness. A hint of sulphur that seems to plague so many Golden Ales. Light sweet orange and citrus. Not bad.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Day1, beer #24. Very pale straw colour. Light grassy hop aroma with some subtle honey notes. More restrained herbal hop character on the palate with an unexpected grainy element and more touches of honey. A bit lacking in zip and rather soft. Not in tip top condition, disappointingly.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
<i>Gravity at The Doric Arch, London</i>
Hazy blond color with a greenish hue. Light hoppy aroma. It has a soft mouthfeel, mainly for the lack of carbonation, with a grassy malt flavor, light, and ordinary bitterness. Nothing special.

Theydon_Bois (20607) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12. Clear pale blonde with a good sized white head. Pale malts on the nose allied to grapefruit and a little piss. Citrus fruits, grapefruit and bitter sweet tones combine together in the flavour of this beer. Medium bodied with a bit of bite, moderate carbonation lending to a bitter sweet finish.
