ForlornHope (439) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
On tap at The Wheatsheaf, Shedfield. Aroma of grain, fruit and spicy, peppery hop. Sparkling golden colour. The taste is where this beer shines. It is slightly sweet to start then bitterness becomes dominant. Crisp and refreshing, biscuit malt and fruit flavours of lychee, pineapple and pear. Excellent, long dry finish. For a strong beer (by British standards) this is an exceptionally quaffable ale. Best drunk straight from the tap at The Wheatsheaf where it pours continually, such is its popularity. Exceptional in every respect.

One of my favorite Golden ales. lightly bitter, with a lovely hop finish. The more I have the more I want, a great pint.

SilkTork (5605) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Guide Dog, Southampton. Sweet and juicy with fragrant hops that incline toward being a little too bitter for my taste. Fewer hops and Id enjoy this.

Chelmsford Summer Beer Fest. Cask. Lightly hazy gold beer, small bubbly white head. Palate is light and dry. Modest fine carbonation. Light malts with a honey sweetness that goes well with the mild orangey hops. Light dry finish. All right.

Oakes (16120) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Golden colour, floral and honeyish aroma. Fruity and a little bit spicy in the palate. Can taste alcohol, which I dont normally appreciate in a standard cask ale.

Cask. The pours deep gold with a small creamy head. The nose is floral hop, some buttered bread. Apples. Quite malty. The taste is more buttery bread, some sweet fruits and syrup. Light floral hop finish. Overall, perfectly reasonable. A nice, hoppy bitter.
