SarkyNorthener (4673) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2017
Bottle from Spar in Tywn, Wales. Amber beer with medium head. Aroma of malts and fruit. Taste is biscuit, malts, very green and fruity. Decent.

rosenbergh (11578) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2017
500 ml bottle. At the Deli 1909, Tampere, Finland.
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Caramel malt, some biscuity sweetness and mild fruity notes in the aroma. No hoppy flavor to speak of. Caramel and biscuity sweetness, some grainy maltiness and faint fruitiness. Strong, Golden Refreshing IPA the label said is a bit misleading. English style.

imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from Myrddis Bar Caffi, Barmouth, Merionethshire, Wales. Hazy gold with white head. There is a tart fruitiness in the aroma on opening which transfers into the flavour of the beer. Tartish peach notes then an over-ripe plummy sweetness along with a light stewed cereal note. Never really eases or changes from this through the beer, not sure about the bottling of this one. Not great.

ManVsBeer (10650) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Rochdale Beer Festival 2015. Has a hoppiness in its nose, with some malts and an overriding sweetness.

Butelka 500ml.zloty kolor. Piana biala obfita. Ziarnisty aromat z wyczuwalna gorycza lekkie cytrusy trawa. Paleta smakowa bardzo delikatna z raczej przesadnym goryczkowym finiszem. Ziemiste z posmakiem ziarna i platkow. Amatorzy cytrusowej swiezosci tutaj jej nie znajda. Piwo latwo pijalne ale do porzadnej IPY mu daleko.

HogTownHarry (7010) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
October 19, 2013 - at Cask Days 2013. (20 IBU - gravity cask). Slightly hazy deep gold with nice lasting creamy-frothy off-white head. Aroma is sour cereal grain, light alcohol and fairly acidic grassiness. Taste follows - definite acidity - apparently Magnum hops? - definite Fuggle or similar bitterness; nice. Solid, chewy body, light carbonation, starts out cereal, morphs to a surprising pithy bitter finish; not all that "golden" - but I really liked it.

Bottle from Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, Furnace Farm, Tal-y-Cafn, Conwy LL28 5RP. Hazy golden coloured with a white head of foam. It has a fruity and strong woody flavour followed by nutty and bitter-sweet finish.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Cask at Sportsman, Newtown. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Quite tart, pretty boring ESB. Not great.

Very light haze on this gold beer. Big pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp from fine minerally carbonation. Light sweetish pale malts. Mild floralness. The hops are pretty mild but what there is exhibits a fresh orange. Light finish. Fresh and breezy, goes down easy!

2.8
Beese (2931) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Cask at The Watford Beer Festival 2012. Poured a mid golden, with a rocky white head. Aroma of lemongrass, zesty citrus and bread. Caramel malty flavours, with some apples and straw. Finish was biscuity, with dry grain and chalk.
