COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

14/1/12 - Refreshing pale ale with a solid white head that laced all the way through. Light citrus notes. Very good.

Very pale yellow with a thin but lasting head, very little aroma but a good slightly sweet citrus hop taste, I had to have four of them to be sure it was good.

Guest beer at The Victorian in Halifax. Slipped down very easily, my kind of beer. Great example of a Yorkshire Pale Ale. My tastebuds said grapefruit and leather but I’m no expert. If you get the chance and like this style of beer then have some.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 29, 2005
Pint pulled at The Monsal at Monsel Heads (Peak District), a milky white that settles to a pale amber with a creamy head. A very floral aroma with hints if plums (and slightly buttery). Very very smooth, though a little sour in the aftertaste, hints of apricots maybe.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2005
Cask Conditioned & on Hand Pump at The Alex in Derby. Qith a sparkler. Very pale Golden colour. Quite dry yet creamy & fruity too. Quite a "cherry" tang to my taste buds

Cask at The Devonshire Cat, Sheffield, ’The Peoples Republic of South Yorkshire’ on the Valley of Beer Day 16-08-08 Poured straw coloured, with white head the appearance was quite immaculate, stunning clarity. This is an easy drinking session beer some boiled sweets along with some citrus, very nice beer.

Theydon_Bois (20165) - 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.
