Leighton (19850) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Cask at Indo - Aldgate East, London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds pale grains, a little citrus peel. Light sweet flavour with notes of pale bread, citric hops, straw, more grain, some grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carboantion; decent condition. Finishes with more grainy pale malts, husk, lemon peel, grass, hay, very subtle leather. Quite so so.

Taste of orange, grapefruit, slight grain, a little tartness and grassy, herbal hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A soft, dry herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A decent fruity aroma and a dry, hoppy taste. An ok golden ale.

DanielBrown (4430) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle from cousin. Peach colour, soft froth ring, which clings perilously to glass. Smells malty... even though itís a Golden. Taste is a bit appley, a bit tart, with some very feint tropical fruit being hinted at before the dry, floorboard tang of UK hopfield takes root, firmly. Not the best.

SarkyNorthener (4276) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle. Orange golden colour. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is a big surprise, quite complex. Very tangy orange tones, a bit like a belgian white beer. Reminds a bit of Hogaarden . Bitter finish. A good beer, unusual for a golden ale. Maybe hints of an IPA.

BlackHaddock (6778) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From Jan 2009: The second beer from this brewery to be reviewed by me today. Clear 500ml bottle (bottle conditioned), best before 2 Feb 09, so two weeks of its life left when drank. Poured into a straight pint glass, with very little sediment getting into the glass. Dull golden colour, slighty hazey and with a large foaming white head. This beer is all about hops, Cascade and WGV are used and they come through into the nose as soon as the bottle opens. A real English bitter taste, hoppy and dry, very impressive. Good feel to this beer, a whole lot better than the first beer I reviewed from them. One more to go (today).

500ml bottle. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is grass and butter. Taste has grass to start and a strong bitter grassy finish.

imdownthepub (13837) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Quite a juicy, fruity beer with a hint of strawberry hoppinesss. Certainly pretty reasonable.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 3/07/10. Deep amber with a slight, white head. Biscuity malts, some berry fruit, a touch of orange and some grassy hops, leading to a decent bitter finish. Good.
