A beer I drank as a teenager, which you don’t see around these parts much any more. I remember it being pretty standard stuff, nothing to rave about.

Golden. Lasting head. Nothing special about the aroma. Very slight bitter finish. Very sessionable.

Always been one of my favorit pub beers. Goes great with a ruban sandwich or somr fish and chips.

This is smooth, easy drinking. Slips down without interfering with tastebuds in an either positive or negative way.

First tasted this bitter way back in the late eighties and was quite popular in many pub group eateries in central Scotland. A bit rarer to find now though? Tasted this in the Hungry Monk, Lochwinnoch in May 1990. Cask, handpump dispense. Sparkling clear gold in colour with a very thick creamy white head. Slight aromatic hop aroma and good refreshing mouth feel. Sweetish taste which continues through into the mellow finish. A good summer session ale.

easy drinking. looks like a ’proper’ pint should. there’s not a lot going on in the flavour or aroma department. slightly bitter finish with gentle malty flavour. slides down very easily without really challenging the senses. tap @ white lion. clifton. bristol

A light blonde ale with a really thick creamy white head, don’t see that everyday. The beer goes down well but leaves a bit of bitter orange lingering.

brownyonder (267) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Draught in Holiday Inn, Reading. Only beer that looked relatively drinkable. Golden colour with thick creamy head. Some citrus nose but not much. Flavour has some malt in it.

GnarlyGnome (1353) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Draft: it pours a dark, honey, yellow. Creamy with a sweetness that is almost hidden by the light bitterness. It’s a great drinkable beer.

On tap at the Sumners before going on North End. Quite bored of the older generation saying this isn’t what it was. Pale golden bitter, still a hint of the dry bitterness, god knows why they thought creamy was a good idea with this. Slips down easily enough though.
