A new golden beer from Nethergate, drinking more like a best bitter than its strength suggests. The fruity and spicy overtones are noticeable from the start on the nose and palate, whilst at the end the the sweet, soft orange notes return, resulting in a complete, well-rounded finish.

The_Osprey (7126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Nethergate Essex Border. Pours amber orange, translucent with a foamy off white head. A little dark to be called a golden ale. I saw this come from the pump with the correct label, but it wouldnt be the first time Ive had my doubts about labelling in this pub. Aroma is hop sack, lemongrass, pale biscuit. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is lemongrass and tangerine peel, some wholemeal bread, sugars and resin, soft bitterness in the finish. Tastes like a gold I suppose. Ok.

Decent drinkable beer. Nice aroma and taste but has a slightly strange aftertaste, which isnt overly unpleasant.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Cask at The Columbia Press (JDW), Watford on 20 Oct. Poured a hazy, mid golden, with a rocky white head. Aroma of berries, flat malt and mild funk. Esters in the flavour, with some grape and melon fruitiness. Finish was fruity, with straw and chalky notes. Possibly none too fresh.

Cask at the moon under water Watford JDW. Golden colour thin white film. Almost no aroma, maybe some earthy straw, flavour is stale wheaty malts, some orange, and sweet grains. Medium body! Chalky carbonation and bitty. Boring dull beer.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2013
On cask at Dead Poets Inn, Holbrook. Another golden ale, better than the average ones though. Its appearance is deceptive and it tastes more of a best bitter. Some toffee in there.
