JorgeLee (1856) - Greater London, - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle. A pale yellow gold ale, this has quite a coarse grainy and slightly yeasty feel to it. The finish is a bit better with a decent hop bite. Ok. Rerate, GBBF 2013. Forgot Id had this rather average beer before. Less grainy/yeasty this time, maybe because on cask, but still a bit dull.

EdKing (2434) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Cask in Crown Posada. Very pale Amber looking golden ale with a thin white head. Nose is sulphury eggy Burton snatch, fruity lemon n boiled sweet, light grains, slight pineapple. Taste is lightly fruity, pineapple, light cereal grains, but some of that eggy Burton snatch. Kind of spoils it.

Cask at the Red Lion Kings Heath; clear golden yellow pour with a bubbly off white head, aroma has pale malts and a citrus edge, taste is your typical golde, citrus some malt action refreshing enough.

wheresthepath (2188) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Cask at the White Hart. Gold with a white head. Citrus up front with a decent balance of biscuitty malt and a crisp finish. Just your average golden ale, but done well.

Cask. Aroma mildly citrus and floral. Pours golden rather than yellow. Strong lacing. Medium carbonation. Solid with residual hop bitterness but I wouldnt seek it out.
