13 Nov 2012: hand-pulled pint in The Station, Oakengates.
As the name suggests, this is a golden brew: on top a pure white foaming head.
The combination of German and Czech hops used in the brew give the beer a gentle hop feel in both the aroma and taste, the malt content isn’t too strong either, so although refreshing it doesn’t hit you with any deep or heavy flavours. I found it fairly boring, but I had been drinking some flavoursome brews before this.
Soft mouthfeel and generally bland.

Cask conditioned at The Whitefriar’s Ale House, Coventry. Gold with no head. Very little aroma or even flavour with this beer, there was a hint of dry tobacco perhaps, but it is a very bland beer. Disappointing. MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Largish aroma. Golden amber in colour. Fairly smooth tasting no aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Golden with a fine head and easy to drink texture. Sweet mild berry nose but lacks flavour. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
First tasted this in the Esquire house. Glasgow (JDW) in July 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Perry notes distinct in the short aroma. Thin zingy sparkling mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a wheaty biscuit note with fruity cava flavours in the mouth. Dusty hop resins present in the dry bitter aftertaste. A rather dry citrusy finish but rather bland overall. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2009
Cask in the Southwark tavern, borough market. Alround rating: Pale basic malt, small hop character, lacking real bitterness. Pritty poor from saltaire, as they are normally very good. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
Cask Conditioned Handpump Wetherspoons Birmingham. A golden beer with a whitish head. The aroma is nice with lemon and grassy notes from the hops. The taste has good citrus flavours with oranges and lemons. A very drinkable well brewed beer. EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2009
Cask, guest at the Friendship, Fallowfield. Light gold, firm white head. Bit of citrus aroma but mostly a slightly sweet maltiness. Slightly sweet taste with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light palate makes this an easy beer to drink. Nothing special but I’d happily sink a few. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Gold with a white head. Gentle sweet aroma with some grassy hops. Sweet taste, possibly a hint of melon. Some bitterness. Fair enough.
