Truely a golden ale. Nice head. Not too much to the nose. The brew was sweet like honey, with a grainy linger. All in all, a good beer.
From old tasting notes. Bright yellow gold color. Big creamy white head. Assertive sweet malt nose. Soft malty flavor has buttery notes. Light dry finish. Nice lacing as well. wlajwl (6813) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2017
Aroma and flavor is caramel/malts, a bit of earthiness and a fruit/slightly hoppy finish. john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017

Bottle. This is a decent golden ale but nothing worth seeking out. Straight forward simple brew.

Light hazy yellow. Aroma of fruit and butterscotch. Taste is thin, a bit sweet, a bit sour, and some bitterness late in the aftertaste. Not much flavour. rondphoto (4448) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 19, 2012
I think that many of the previous reviewers may have had out of date bottles, hence odd aroma and taste. My bottle was fresh (@ Sergio’s World Beer Bar in Louisville) as it was recently obtained and brought over from the brewer. Pours a hazy dirty orange with a good bubbly white head, big streaks of lace. Yes, the taste is full caramel malt (as are many British session ales), and there is some candied fruit in a mildly hoppy finish, but I could find nothing wrong here. It is a good example of the style, and, as such, I recommend it. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Claims to be the first ever organic beer brewed (back in the 1990’s). Good for Spock and other Vegans I suppose. This 500ml brown bottle had a best before date of 26 Sep 2008, I drank it a month later.
Poured into a Batemans pint glass, it was a golden slightly hazey colour with a good sized white head which slowly faded to a collar and a wispy covering.
The aroma was of flowers and cut grass, very floral indeed.
The beer was spritzy more than fizzy, a twang of citrus fruits in the taste. Unlike most UK brewed beers I’ve had.
Sadly there was something missing, where was the 5% alcohol, where was the bitterness I was expecting and like?
Overall not too bad, it just lacked that bitterness I require in a UK pint.

Bottle pours a murky dark gold with a tiny off white head. Scent is yeast and earth. Taste is same. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Light malty aroma. flavor is a little better than tha aroma, nice caramel taste. Hoppy finish.
