Bottle at home. Loved the powerful hoppy flavour of the ale but found it a bit too bitter for a golden, prefer mine lighter.

Grzesiek79 (4228) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Porzadne one złociste Ale. Prawie jak Bitter, jasna zlota barwa, leciutko mglista bardzo mala piana na dwa palce. Zapach olejkow aromator do wypiekow ciasta drożdżowego, A w smaku totalna goryczkowa bomba. Dla wytrawnych piwoszy zdecydowanie, piwo tak zbombardowane chmielem ze ma się wrazenie jakby nie było w nim wogole slodu

ForlornHope (488) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Pours golden in colour with a thin white head. Deep aroma of bready yeast, malt and funky hop, pungent and aromatic at the same time. Initial sweetness gives way immediately to a huge bitterness. Rich mouthfeel of juicy malt with a vanilla background, citrus tastes and a long, dry finish. Gently carbonated and dangerously drinkable. Great.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle, Morrisons, 15/01/2016 Spring elderflower taste. Well carbonated. Excellent condition. Some slight grassy notes. White grape. Low acid. Clean. Easy-drinking. Great spring ale. I really dont think this can be bettered for the style. It can go bad easily if kept hot hence why ratings are low and I really dont understand the low ratings as this is exactly what you want for a spring/golden ale. Great hop combination. Super soft malts. Super clean. CO2 in the tank. Excellent.

Scopey (14022) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to Lorna. It pours clear golden - light orange with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, bready malts, biscuit, toasted grain and a touch of citrus. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, grassy, toasted grain, straw, white bread, orange oil and a touch of peppery spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, clean and has a nice level of bitterness. Decent golden ale.
