BlackHaddock (7562) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
500ml bottle: BBE May 2018. Obtained from Buon Vino, just outside Settle. Drank at home, lunchtime on 3rd Aug 2017. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged glass pint tankard. Clear amber body, good foaming blanket of white bubbles on top. Decent blend, fairly bitter overall but has a good semi-sweet malty base for the hops to play with. A little over chilled, even if the bottle label recommends 10 C, couldn’t find any aroma at such a low temp. Light malty notes appeared in the nose as it warmed a bit in the tankard.

Goat & Tricycle. Fairly astringent. Possibly a little sour. Possibly old, but this oaky and peanut skin character is typical of Wadworths. Not sure how much I like this. Struggling with it.

zacgillbanks (5413) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle from Spar Supermarket, Hawes, North Yorkshire. Pale golden with a sweet peach, toffee and citrus flavour followed by a fruity, smooth earthy finish. Not bad.

Golden small head soft carbonation. Honey flapjack hint of citra ok session stuff.

allmyvinyl (10925) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Cask at the 2016 Cloudspotting festival. Pours clear golden amber with a thick white head. Aromas of brown bread, malt, light lemon. Taste is light sweet, bready. Faint balancing bitterness. Thin finish.

undercurrent25 (2190) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Pours a blonde colour, Taste is quite cerealy and dry. Overall an average blonde ale

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2012
On cask at the Bon Accord. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, lemon, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours and mildly bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Not bad.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
On cask at footballers inn, summerseat. Pours amber, smooth white head. Quite fruity, pleasant session ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011
On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. The latest in a seemingly endless procession of golden ales at this festival. Nothing particular in this one to distinguish it from the opposition. Clear gold colour. Some fruity hops but finishes quite dry. Just a touch of citrus. Respectable. Should probably try it again without the distraction of so many similar beers.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
Cask Stillage at the Memorial Hall, Northwich 17/09/2005 Golden coloured fruity smooth on the palate and hoppy with a hint of spiced flavour in a crisp and slightly dry malt finish.
