Nice golden appearance but a little washed out. Mild on palate. Over ripe fruit flavours but all very bland. Mr_Pink_152 (5007) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2017
On tap at the Felix Holt JDW, Nuneaton. Golden colour with a thick white head and good lacing. Aroma slight over ripe fruit and damp sawdust. Taste light fruity and slight sweet. Light body. The_Osprey (7991) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as ’Cotleigh Seahawk Gold’ - seems to have changed its name slightly. Dark golden, translucent and still with a diminishing beige head. Aroma is airy and plain, maybe slightly vegetal. Body is fairly light with soft carbonation. Taste is quite watery, more of that vegetal vibe, musty floral notes, some soggy biscuit scooped from the bottom of a cup of tea, papery. This is about as basic as ’hote goldes’ come really. Quite washed out with a vague vegetable note. Maybe celeriac? Or maybe raw parsnip. Can’t quite place it. Overall, this is not a great beer. But still very drinkable.

Served in a pint glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear gold colour with a thick off-white slowly diminishing head. Aroma is a fresh combination of caramel, grass, honey and tangerine. Taste is caramel, grains, grass, fruity, slightly smoky with a slight bitter aftertaste. Medium body with lively carbonation. The slight smoky notes in the taste make this brew interesting and unusual. Nice, very easy to drink, smooth and pleasant. Rasmus40 (20649) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016

Bottle: the last of the Cotleigh gift pack I got for Christmas. this beer is the epitome of a souless ,shitty ,low boost brown . it’s skunky as hell , relentless sunk nuance . if u put this ale cask conditioned it would at least lose the skunk notes from the clear bottle . notes suggest brown bread , caramel, dusty yeast , peppery citrus hops , light vanilla.... and skunk up the ass. . Cotleigh are very hit and miss as a brewery. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2016
500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch, lemon. Taste is light lemon and buttery malt. Astringent finish. Towey1989 (2827) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, slight peach, subtle biscuit, a little honey and floral hops. Taste of lemon, peach, sugar, some biscuit, subtle honey and floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sugary sweet finish with subtle floral hop bitterness. A sweet beer with sugar, yeast and honey quite dominant over the citrus and floral hop. Not my kind of beer.
