Gravity cask at Hog and Partridge, St Neots. Light to mid gold. Tight little white head. Floral/peach aroma, very weak so difficult to get much more. Innocuous sweet taste followed by a lip-smacking bitterness. Light palette. Just ok. BlackHaddock (7518) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Pint taken at the Brewery Visitor Centre in Wainfleet on 4th Sep 2010. The abreviation means ’Good Honest Ale’, which has been the Batemans logo for years.
Pours a lovely golden straw colour with a small but complete white head.
The East Coast Goldings and Challenger hops give the beer a fine spicey hop aroma and add bitterness into the taste which become more pronounced as the mouth dries. Mild citrus feel to the initial sips, before the hops take over.
Well balanced and pleasant to drink.

Cask. A golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemony hops as well as light notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of matl, caramel, and chewy and citrusy hops, leading to a dry and bitter finish. gunnfryd (15103) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2011

Cask at The Wharf. A clear golden beer topped by a small, white head. Biscuity malts and fruits on the aroma, quite citrusy. It is dry and medium bodied with a good citrusy bitterness and some crackery pale malts. A quenching beer with a pleasant hop addition. Nothing special though. 101020

Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. More light amber than gold in colour. A hint of diacetyl in the aroma. Fairly dry. Mainly malty, like most Batemans beers, even when they are trying to make a Golden Ale. And like most Batemans beers I found it palatable but conservative and unadventurous. GHA here stands for "Good Honest Ales" which I guess is one way of looking at it. I note that others have found it rather more vibrant so I wonder about the condition here. It must have gone down well enough with plenty of drinkers as it has subsequently been added to the permanent range.
