Like the peacocks that roam the gounds of Belvoir Castle. A glorious strutting display. This full bodied light coloured premium beer has a generous helping of several varieties of English cone hops.

imdownthepub (14349) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from a shop in Newark, Notts. Hazy gold with slight head. Quite a thinnish beer, grainy malts with a hint of fruity sourness, I suspect this was an old bottle but no Date Code evident. Sweet finish.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Cask. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, bready malts, some floral notes as well as some nectar. Flavour is very similar with some fruity and grassy notes.

ianwelby (1328) - SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Golden beer with not much head (though that may have been because I was trying to avoid pouring sediment in per the bottles suggestion and did a bad job.) Pleasant hoppy, floral aroma. Mild hoppy flavour thats only just tasty enugh to avoid being bland. Decent enough but nothing special.

Fin (10382) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle that I picked up from the Belvoir Brewpub, Old Dalby, Rutland/Leics 23-01-09 consumed 28-01-09 Pours amber with a sligh haze, like the Hopshackle before this is probably a chill haze as my utility room is very cool. Wonderfully hoppy and sweet citrus notes coming off of this, even a slightly rustic aroma. The sweet hoppy flavours leach around the mouth yum. This is wonderfully refreshing with a good bittersweet tanginess, lovely beer, finishes with a lingering bitterness and a splash of jiffy lemon. A7 A3 F8 P4 OV15 3.7

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Bottled. This is pleasant but unremarkable, a fairly standard English golden ale. I wouldnt seek it out again, but theres nothing wrong with it.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), GBBF, August 2005. Yet another in the seemingly interminable procession of golden ales, with nothing really to lift it out from the ordinary. Not a lot of aroma. Soft fruit and tangy hops on the palate. Dry and reasonably bitter. More earthy than aromatic. Not much US or German influence here. OK, just hard to get excited about.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
Mild herbal hops and fruity esters in the nose. Clear copper coloured body with low, white, fully diminishing head. Fruity, lightly buttery flavour has some citrus character and a lightly bitter finish. Medium-light body is somewhat slick with fairly low carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2005
Cask (GBBF): Mild sweet fruity aroma. Gold in colour. Sweet caramel with almost a touch of berries. Medium bodied, drinkable bitter.
