Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - clear yellow, thin off-white head, floral hop aroma, lime, hint of resin, good malt hop balance, mild clean citrus finish, refreshing

Tasted this bitter in the Last Post, Paisley in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick white head. Citric lime note in the short floral aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a juicy zesty flavour of lemon peel and tart grapefruit. Dry dusty hops in the bitter aftertaste compliment the malt well. Refreshing bitter finish with a citric dryness. A typical summer session blond ale.

(CASK @ the Coopers Arms,Rochester) I like Burton Bridge their beers are good and sometimes innovative too. This Golden Best Bitter was pleasant , citrusy fruity hops -married well with light sweet caramel notes. Easy ale...

Cask. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops on a lightly malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Cask. Aroma is soft fruity, floral notes, golden/amber, wearing a tiny off-white head, some lace. Flavour has a mild malt, fruitiness. Light bodied, well balanced, pleasing mouthfeel. Very good.

Cask. Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is eggy, wooden, nectary, earthy and quite vegetably. Flavour is very similar with the earthyness being dominating. Also some more fruits and wood than in the aroma.
