StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2006
A very pale yellow gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hop aroma with a hint of malt towards the end. A dry citrus taste of hop, followed by a smooth light, malt flavour. The finish is fairly dry. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 23, 2006
Tasted 23/02/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumbles, Wellington. Think Kelham Gold, with a little more guts. Looks the same, though laces a little better. Slightly more melon fruit and some lolly-like malt character on the nose. Then a herbal bitterness through the middle. I suspect that Kelham Gold may be from the same mash but watered down to a lower strength. Again, another extremely well made beer with no outstanding characteristics. nb: Either these beers are no longer bottle-conditioned or they have the least amount of conditioning yeast Ive ever seen...

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2006
Pale golden colour with very little head. Sweet hoppy aroma and a definite honey note. Taste has a twist of lemon to the fore with a bit of background malt. Not much bitterness. Not much to say...

leaparsons (10130) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2005
Bottled. Bright golden yellow in colour. Aromas are very sweet honey and lots of floral hops. Flavours are equally honeyed and floral with some soapiness. Some sourness livens it up a touch. Very smooth and easy to drink but then so is water. The carbonation is too prevelant and the palate a touch thin. Hints of dry floral hops on the finish help.
