Very pleasant aroma lot of fruits, citrus, mandarine. A bit nice fruity sourness in armoma. Medium body. Nice malty taste with gentle bitternes that lasts very short. Good session beer. Very drinkable. BlackHaddock (7771) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 27th Apr 2009, drank 10 Mar 2009. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint glass. ladnewton (2055) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2009
Looked like a Lager/Pilsner, Pure Gold by name and looks it would seem.
Good English beery smell, hops and barley mixing togethr like they should. A sweetness is present but not enough to turn the aroma sickly, just a hint of summer gardens and flowers.
English Maris Otter and Cara Gold malts, hence the clour, the blend of Northern Brewer, Fuggles, Hereford Goldings and Styrian Goldings Hops ensure the taste follows the aroma to give a truely English feel to the taste and drinkability. The label goes on to say it has dry, bitter notes, it certainly does and it does it very well.
I am rapidly likeing this breweries products. The body is solid for a 4.3% bitter and it has a lot more flavour than the colour suggests. This is one very well balanced beer and very easy to drink. Pity I couldn’t get the head to stay on the beer as I drank it.
Cask at the Wellington, 29th December 2008. Absolutely exquisite. Very dry, hoppy and sharply bitter. Pale gold colour with white mainly diminishing head. A good ale for a session, and recommended.
