Slight chill haze, golden with nice lacing. Aroma is musky, citrus, pear, apple skins and light honey. Flavour is honeyish, with pearish fruitiness, piney, citrusy, woody hop bitterness. Light body lets it down a bit.
Got from Morrison’s tasted cheap smelt cheap did not like this beer at all

Lovely golden ale. Everything is right, the carbonation, mouth feel and taste. It's great. The perfect beer to convert lager drinkers. Thought the 5% abv might make it taste boozy, but it wears it well.
This is highly sessionable, and I'll be buying this stuff often. 8.5/10.
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 found this gem many years ago in a JD wetherspoons. floral aroma , light golden in colour , small white head , refreshing taste l33 (7) - - NOV 7, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 500ml bottle. Lovely summer light golden beer, although equally acceptable
In November, doesn’t taste as strong as 5%, very drinkable Davros IX (532) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle at home. I used to love this beer and it is still my sister's favourite. It poured with minimal head and I have to say that it was a fairly bland golden ale in terms of flavour. I admit that I have a cold and that doesn't help matters, but I remember that this used to have much more flavour. It slipped down well while finishing making the roast dinner, but beyond that it was not memorable.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Cask at the Bear & Staff, Leicester Square. Clear light gold, white lacing. Floral, citrus dry, plenty of flavour and highly drinkable. Cracking pint, like it says on the tin, ideal for summer PeatyPete (1111) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2017
Golden colour with white head. Aroma malt a bit buttery. Taste malt and fruity.

Cask pint at the Marquis of Granby, Epsom. Pours clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of malt with hops with something not great, unclean lines? Some butter. Dry bitter finish. Times have moved on since I first had it. thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2017
Cask at the Eight Bells beer festival in East Sussex. A classic example of a British golden ale -- it’s light with a bit of honey sweetness but not much more from the hops, and there’s a great hop profile that shows off earth, pine, and citrus before finishing with a long bitterness. Very, very good stuff.
