Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple and grapefruit. Similar flavours with a dry, yeasty finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Just a little thin but quite drinkable.

You immediately realize why it is called "white gold" after it is poured. Thick and creamy white to white ish yellow beer. Creamy mouthfeel, a bit buttery with some lemon. Tried with Dave in Durham in 2012.

tombyars (1816) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2011
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in April 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with hints of apple green haze around the edges. Thin creamy white head. Strong floral notes of elderflowers and hawthorn in the nose. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a light digestive biscuit flavour with tart gooseberry and kiwi fruit. Dusty floral hops in the bitter aftertaste mix well with the malt. Finish is slightly dry with tart fruit notes. A pleasant summer session Golden Ale and well recommended.

Cask (handpump) @ KIT - Kelham Island Tavern, 62 Russell Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire England S3 8RW.

Clear light yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, toasted, light hoppy, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100118]

Ungstrup (39108) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2010
Cask at Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield. A light golden beer with a lazing whige head. The aroma has notes of elderflowers and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of flowers, malt, elderflowers, and hops, leading to a nicely bitter finish.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2009
Cask, Mill Hotel, Chester. Pale gold with a creamy white head. Aroma was grassy hop and citrus tinged. Light and floral this was nicely hopped and a decent thirst slaker. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but decent session fodder and nice drinkin’ in the sun.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
A surprisingly hoppy light golden ale topped by a lasting white foam. Obviously very hard water offers salty mineral tones side by side with the flowery, very bright and firmly citrusy hops, confident and pushing their limits in this lean-bodied, thirst-quenching offering of high quality.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2007 This cant have been in the ebst condition judging by other ratings and it was a little hazy. Aroma was citrus and grassy hops but lacked too much goodness. Tas was similar malt was a little grainy and hops werent as dominant as id have liked. RERATE: Amazing citrus hop character that made me drink it in under 5 mins.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2006
[Cask from The Three Judges] Citric, perfumy yeasty character. Light mouthfeel, dry, juicy fruit finish.
