[email protected] Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head. ARoma is very fruity and slightly wooden. Flavour is grass, hoppy fruit and some vanillaish notes. Not very exciting.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF2007. A golden coloured beer with a decent hoppy aroma at first but then a bit of cream and a bit of fart creep in. The taste is also suffering from sulphur notes. Malts are not good. Disappointing.

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
BCA. Pale gold with a moderate white head. A hint of citrussy hop aroma. The flavour had a touch more hop with a good bitter finish. Good.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
Kingstone Gold, cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton. Dusty blonde with a pure white foam. Honeycomb and lemon lockets aroma; flavour distinctly honeyed and lingeringly biscuity with a good bite of bittering hop. Clean and crisp but ends up tasting far too like H+L Lockets for its own good.

BlackHaddock (6978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD of 10 May 2013, poured carefully into a UK pint sleeve 9 days before that date at home. As the name suggests, this is a gold coloured beer, a huge white head sat on top. The aroma was hoppy pines and grains with a yeasty undertone, as was the taste. Slight citrus notes also came into play as the beer warmed. Refreshing and crisp in the body feel, this is a thirst quenching brew with enough flavour to interest me. Bitter aftertaste which lingered as the mouth dried.
