500ml bottle - a hazy golden body, thin white head. Decent hoppy nose, bitter citrus taste. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Thanks I gethinbeer for this one. Pours a clear amber colour with a tight white head. The nose is quite earthy and woody with a moderately crackery malt base. Fairly simple flavour and there isn’t a whole lot of the typical spice and floral character that I typically associate with this beer. Some light sulfur as well. I suspect this bottle may be a bit passed its prime, but it’s still enjoyable. pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Golden colour, malty aroma, taste is a bit fruity. Not especially good. I hoped for a bit more, but it just wasn’t there. dogbomb (1229) - ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Co-Op branded bottle. Pours clear gold with a slow pour, and hazes up a bit with a more rigorous pour. Not a very good head. Nose is malty and hoppy and balanced, but theres a nasty metallic tinge. Thankfully the metals don’t carry into the mouth much and it’s a fruity hop explosion, followed by some malt balancing and a bitter (and slight metallic) finish. But then it kind of fades a bit too quickly. Nice enough, but really nothing to get excited about. TEJA (3099) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle at omhper, thanks. Bottled, as Freeminer Gold Miner. Thinn white lace. Almost clear with golden color. Tropical fruit aroma. Big bitterness that lasts a long time that unfortunantly gets a litle astringent.

500ml Co-op version in Manchester.
Decent white head. Clear golden pour. Nice beer planky84 (3298) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Co-op version. Amber/gold pour with a white head. Raisin, toffee and caramel aroma. Quite a dark fruit feel in the flavour. Not too bad. Pudding (262) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Plenty of hops in this one. Strong flavour of orange. Thick mouthfeel. Prolonged bitterness. A favourite of mine. luttonm (6449) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2012
0.5l bottle as ’Freeminer’s Gold Miner, Bottled Conditioned" from the Co-Op (in the Forest of Dean). Robust golden ale, nice balance of strong drying dark malts and the tart-fruit hopping. Bittering all around is nice, though balanced with malt bill. Strong but refreshing. Wish I could try this very fresh or on cask. mike_77 (6732) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2012
Hazy blond colour. Lightly hoppy and citrusy aroma. The taste is a bit phenolic and unpleasant. Hint of hop bitterness in the finish.
