Bottle. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. No tasting notes kept, just rating. theprof (1128) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Cask. Aroma caramel, bread, with light floral notes. Pours rich golden with white top . Unfortunately it’s downhill from there. I am not a fan with bitter that is more sour than bitter and leaves an acrid coating on the tongue. No glory here Mr_Pink_152 (5400) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
500ml bottle from Metro Wines. Slightly hazy warm golden colour with white head. Slightly fruity hop aroma light sweetness and a mid bitter finish. imdownthepub (15128) - 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 (26487) - 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.

Golden beer with not much head (though that may have been because I was trying to avoid pouring sediment in per the bottle’s suggestion and did a bad job.) Pleasant hoppy, floral aroma. Mild hoppy flavour that’s only just tasty enugh to avoid being bland. Decent enough but nothing special. Fin (10820) - 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.

Bottled. This is pleasant but unremarkable, a fairly standard English golden ale. I wouldn’t seek it out again, but there’s nothing wrong with it. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2005
Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Kensington Olympia 05/08/2005
Golden coloured and hoppy with some spicy flavours. Slight dryness in a lasting malt finish. chriso (7586) - 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.
