Bottle, pours golden. Hints of apple and grass on the nose. Its a bit meh, a bit bland on the palate but straw and caramel are the two flavours i did get. Nice enough, just could have had a bit more. McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Clear and definitively golden body with frothy white head - impressively fizzy and feverently yeasty nose 12 months on. Touches of hay, dried apricot. Initial taste of crisp steely bitterness, only standout flavour is like a watered down kids apple and something juice with a nice bitterness carried to the finish. Impressively well held carbonation flattened out by the this slow burn tang. Sandy, pale malt and straw finish and a weird sweet stewed linger. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013

568ml bottle, purchased at Ely Winter Beer festival 2013, best before 30 November 2013, at tasting on 20 January 2013. Mid gold colour. Slight haze. Malts in the aroma are a bit on the grainy side. Some light citrus in the flavour but certainly not well endowed with vibrant hop character. Acceptable quaffer but lacks presence and didn’t leave much of an impression.
Leighton (22056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Pours clear gold with a light, white foam head. Bready malt nose - white bread to be precise - with faint nips of lemon. Light sweet flavor with dried pale malts and mellow straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fairly dry to finish with more pale malts, white bread. Bland but OK.

568ml bottle ([email protected]
Toasted crumpets aroma. Tastes mushroomy and a bit "old". Is before its BB. Hmm... This is why I’m no fan of "golden ale"s. Sub-par.

Bottle 568ml. @ ChrisO Snow Tasting.
Clear medium yellow amber colour with a small to average, open and frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, caramel, tea, cheese. Flavour is moderate sweet and light moderate bitter with a average duration, odd ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
