Cask; Regular. Originally brewed at 4.6%. Has been available in bottle.
Golden Newt is a pale session bitter 4.1%. The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used in the recipe to bring the delicate hop flavours & aroma to the fore. The use of Cascade gives a pleasing citrus aroma. Finest pale Maris Otter malt has been blended with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour and results in a satisfying pint.

The_Osprey (9942) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Cask handpull at The Pembury Tavern as Elgoods Golden Newt, 4.1%. Pours a pale golden yellow, translucent and still with a bubbly off white head. Aroma is custard creams, cream soda. Body is light and smooth with lowish carbonation. Taste is watery astringent with notes of apple and straw, icing sugar in water, some pale wood. Lingering vanilla. Bit weird overall. I'm thinking the condition isn't optimal here. (4-4-4-3-11=2.6)

(Cask at Captain Corvus, 20160903) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, earth and butter. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, earth, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A poor pale ale. Bad cask?

Reindeer. Golden. This has a nice balanced malty base with a gentle citrus hoppiness. Light to medium with a soft feel.

ManVsBeer (11499) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Cask @ Jack’s House, Tod. Amber with thick creamy head and a malt aroma and a light citric orange flavour.

jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Cask @ Burnaby Arms, Bedford. Mid to dark gold. Aroma is malty with hints of citrus fruit hop, like a proper lager. Taste is... wow. Bittersweet, flavourful and rich from start to finish.

Theydon_Bois (21887) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby, 06/03/13. Clear pale golden with a decent sized white cap. Nose is pale malts, grass, light citrus - pretty thin. Taste comprises pale malt, lemon, citrus, light summer fruit, vegetal notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Look and feel drags this one up a few notches - very average, not one to revisit for me!

foxo82 (939) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Cask at The Cross Keys, Nottingham. Amber brown headless ale with gravy hops aroma and a tangy, bitter grassy hops taste. Reminiscent of Harvest Pale. Decent session ale.

A rarity for myself. Iin fact the first time i have rated a beer in both cask and bottle form.Tried in the isle of Man during a lovely holiday in July 2011.Amber and slightly cloudy.Hoppy with a gentle bitterness.Pleasant and slightly above average but not a lot.

ladnewton (2098) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London on 17th June 2011. Amber with very little head and no lacing. Fruity aroma and liquid; berries and citric hop on tongue. Citric grapefruit finish on a surprisingly zingy mouthfeel.
