berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2009
50cl bottle from Asda, Earley, Berkshire. Straw with a fast fading white head; moderate carbonation; slightly musty lemon aroma; creamy texture with some citrus and light caramel malts; well-balanced gentle bitter finish. A rather elegant and refined beer, and excellent value for money.

Bottle (bottle conditioned), May 2008. Hazy blonde. Rather fizzy. Clean, dry mouthfeel. Clean. Some dry, toasty malt. Slightly earthy hops. Drinkable enough but not a particularly vibrant Golden Ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2006
Cask at the Elmdon Dial, Elmdon, Essex. Saffron only began brewing in April 2006. This, their Golden Ale, has good colour and a white head. In other respects itís not up to standard, with little aroma, taste or bitterness. Limp and watery, Iím afraid.
