The Brewers Project
Brewed with the finest hops, Irish barley, and a specially selected amber malt
A beautifully balanced ale with a rich golden hue. The subtle biscuit flavours of the malted barley perfectly complement the pleasing bitterness and delicate, fruity hop aroma, giving way to a refreshingly crisp finish.

imdownthepub (14755) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2017
Draught at The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne as Open Gate Golden Ale, but same beer. Gold with slight head. There is a thin character to this, cereal malt note, weetabix, biscuity. Just okay.

wlajwl (6880) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2017
Aroma is fruit, malts and beery. The flavor is fruit, malts, mild macro/adjunct and a beery bitter/sweet finish.

Ratman197 (14970) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of graininess, earthiness and yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of graininess, yeast and light earthiness with a smooth lingering grainy finish.

Brotiger, mild bitterer Antrunk. Zum Mittelteil etwas schwächer, brotig bleibend, wässrig. Trocken herb-brotiger Nachhall. Okay. 8/7/7/7/9/7

dmctaster (90) - Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Amber color with a white head. Slight bready aroma. Taste is bitter with no other flavors. Pub ale with the traditional bready taste. I would consider a bitter.

monk191 (2007) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2017
A very interesting take on a golden ale. Pours a very nice deep orange Amber color with a white head. Smells of banana and cloves. Taste seems like dunkel or Belgian yeast, with lots of cloves and banana, and a nice bite in the finish. Had in the bottle. at the Galaxy Bar at the Guinness Brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (5380) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Respectable 300cL bottle, good label. Vienna light brown, clear, with a tapioca pudding head. Malty, sweet, slightly toasted aroma. Definitely a UK-style pub ale. A little tannic, faintly astringent, moderately sweet with toffee notes, not aggressively bitter. Not fruity. Very much in my wheelhouse, and sessionable. Sweetish, toasted toffee finish, medium body. Deftly carbonated. Costco. Memorial day weekend, 2017.

PorterPounder (8081) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - had at a wedding party - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling light amber pour with soft slightly off-white head. Thin trail of lacing. Aroma has some butterscotch accents, some light peppery spicy notes. Flavor has some nice subtle bitterness, some buttery notes, a touch of light citrus bitterness, butterscotch in the finish. Nice spritz to the mouthfeel.

deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAY 9, 2017
50cl bottle. Thick white head. Clear amber pour. Watery. They should stick to stouts and porters. This is ok at best

1.4
dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle, 500ml. A copper colour with a large frothy head. Aroma of sweet hops, some grain notes. Watery, very little flavour. Some smooth hops and a little citrus maybe? Moderate carbonation. Why does this exist?
