Ernest (7864) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Cask.
Head is mostly/fully diminishing
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly to moderately hoppy (stale flowers, perfume, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Similar to Jarl but not as vibrant and snappy; soft and easy drinking. A little yeasty and kinda forgettable.

radassace (422) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours straw gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, honey, grainy malt, bread, pine and light grapefruit peel. Nicely carbonated. Decent mouthfeel for a light beer. Taste is bready, grainy malt, pine, something floral, bit of spice and lemon grapefruit. Finish is pleasantly bitter and quite juicy. This is fantastic. Could drink bottle after bottle of this !

Martin243 (1230) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Pint in Edinburgh. Golden with a white head. Citrus and cat pee aroma Grapefruit and biscuit flavour, slightly creamy texture. Tasty, but this style is getting over-familiar.

3.7
HogTownHarry (7081) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
September 17, 2015 - at Holborn Whippet; cask. Attractive clear and refractive pale gold, nice and bubbly, with a solid mottled white/off-white head. Terrific simple grassy/honey/heather golden ale aroma - not much alcohol, plenty of mid-level bitterness. Taste follows, perhaps sweeter than the aroma - very VERY grainy. Thick, chewy mouthfeel, solid cask carbonation with a medium-length bitter finish - nice dry tingly aftertaste - some Goldings in there?
