Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, - DEC 6, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear gold with a sturdy, white head. Light, grassy hops in the nose with faint fruit. Nice flavor, lightly malty with crisp, straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super clean, mild hop finish with some easy malts. Solid, easy drinking beer.

Clear pale to medium golden, small frothy white head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; aroma toasted malts, caramel, straw, hint of honey; taste medium sweet and bitter, malty, light caramel, bit cardboard; dry sweetbitter aftertaste, bit husky, light spicy notes; medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation; more than decent blond ale.

Onesimus (90) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2017
A blonde with a gentle nature easy going at 3.9 ABV Clear, bright, clean and fresh. One finger foamy head with long legs and lacing the glass nicely. Nose and flavour are a rather discrete floral and citrus with a little bitterness to follow through. A little to delicate for my taste.

3.3
alexmate (201) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Appearance is golden as expected with a large creamy white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is of sweet cream, citrus, honey, sweet sugars similar to the like of Leffe Blonde, but lighter and unfortunately a slight metallic smell. Taste is of honey, slight lemon, brown sugar and sweet malty barley sugar. Nice session ale. Price Paid: £1.49 on clearance, 500ml bottle.

Bottle. 4.5% ABV. Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, pale malts, a little caramel, subtle honey and spicy, grassy hops. Taste of lemon, subtle orange, pale malts, slight honey, subtle caramel and spicy, grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, spicy, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Not a bad golden ale. Light citrus, spicy, grassy hops and sweet malts.

Cask in the Kings Arms, Castleford. A run of the mill golden ale with light citrus flavour. Easy to sup, but pretty bland really.
