Bottle. Clear golden appearance that left no lacing. Low carbonation with a lingering bitterness Long after you have finished drinking. An above average bitter. Bov (13004) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2008

In bottle, thanks to Kieran in Wellington. Lovely golden colour. Moderate hop aroma. More body than I expected, which was nice. Excellent bitter orange marmalade character. Refreshing, pleasing. beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2008
Bottle from ASDA, Shipley. Quality bitter - pours light amber with small diminishing white head, brisk hoppy aroma. Flavour starts malty with a little toastiness, giving ways to typical Goldings hop flavours. Aromatic and smooth on the palate, finish dry, hoppy and lingering. Not bad at all.

Bottle conditioned, 500ml. From Taste Buds, Adderbury, Oxon. Gold, hazed with slight head. Quite a sharp, lemony, orange flavoured beer, hoppy with touches of doughy yeast. Light, almost insignificant malt, a touch of grain. It’s fine without reaching the heights. yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 2, 2007
Tasted 02/11/2007. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines.
Pours a brilliant pale gold with a soft white head. Rich but clean aroma of cookie dough and caramel pervades at first, followed by a dusty floral hop notes with hints of old oranges. I’m surprised intensity of the Vienna malt - it really sticks out. Slick through the mouth, a combination of the torrified wheat, dough-like Vienna and big oil hoppy flavour. Big bitterness, lingering, very enjoyable, with more of the bitter orange character and a touch of unwanted grainy astringency. Extra points, without doubt, for the fantastic descriptive labels. A nice bitter, well-travelled. OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 29, 2007
Pours a crystal clear light gold with a tight fluffy white head. Exceptional sweet toffee aroma with a hint of mineraly character, interestingly earthy citric hops only seem to appear as the beer warms. On the palate there is heaps of sweet malty toffee, hints of nuts and earthy hop ending in a satisfyingly bitter finish. Awesome beer not nearly as hop driven as the name would suggest but a top pint. cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2007
