"Distinctive balance between the flavours of fruity Golding variety hops, Maris Otter malted barley and demerara sugar. Strong and refreshingly long, dry and bitter finish."

ralphdot (1113) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2018
4.2% gold colour with a thin head, slight malty aroma, tastes like a cheap bitter, a gimmicky beer, for tourists.

Bottle. This is a nice little bottled bitter that is really right down the middle for the style.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2011
Old amateur rating: Bottle. Dark color, fine white head. Somebody burned flavor and a little sweet. Easily drinkable but good.

RuneStumo (2739) - Haugesund, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2010
0,5l Bottle. Golden yellow colour with white head. Nice malty aroma with bitterness and refreshing aftertaste.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 1, 2009
Soft CO2. floral and fresh smell. Late summer hops. A bit cheese like??? Dark yellow and white ale head a bit hazy colour. A full solid flavour. Light bitter and sweet, fruity in a way. Oily on the lips and prickling in mouth. Full body, slick/oily "grinding" texture. Light fizzy and good full finish.
