mixture of malt and hops but a very mild aroma sweet smelling. Certainly is golden but slightly cloudy with a large off white head, some lacing on the glass. Subtle flavour, but can’t put my finger on it, nice though not like others i’ve tried lately that are too lagerish. Also tasted this as tesco golden ale but the tesco one was slightly more perfumed and didn’t rate as high. They should be put on as seperate beers as they were different.

I sampeld this under the name of Tesco’s Finest Ale and it’s pretty good. Sweet and caramel in taste, but a lovely amber colour. Smooth and fruity - very drinkable.

Bottle, sat with KP. Golden in appearance, white head. Citrus, little hops, and yeah can taste a little of that demerara sugar (cheers label). So so, not bad.

An unassuming beer; sampled from the bottle on holiday. The aroma is fruity malt. The appearance is copper with thin carbonation and lacing. The taste starts off with fruit (berry-ish) then presents a not-long-lasting hop bitterness. Palate is on the thin side. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a thin white head. Their is a light citrus hoppy aroma. The taste is malty with a citrus flavours with a long dry finish. Not a bad beer from a good brewery.

Bottle in London. Orange/brown colour. Tall foamy head. Hoppy nose. Soapy, creamy flavour. Some caramel. Too much carbonation. Fair enough. Nothing particularly interesting about it though. (Fair enough as I scored it at Tesco...)
