50cl bottle. Thick creamy white head. Clear golden pour. Light bitterness. Easy drinking.

MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Subtle herbal hops are supported by mild hay and honey in this forgettable Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the dark golden clarity.
-The mouthfeel is crisp and geared towards drinkability.
-All flavors feel tired. An old bottle?
-Hops could be brighter in the aroma.

jjsint (2475) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Handpull cask at the Queen Edith, Cambridge. Light gold, gentle natural carbonation. A bit of small white head and barnacle-like foamy white lacing. Temperate floral aroma. Bittersweet taste, a hint of butter. Well done but a bit too understated.

BeerViking (4298) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. Sweet and faintly tangy nose. Dry-sweet and crisp body. Reminiscent of an unusually citrusy Klsch.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
500ml bottle, pours clear gold, small white head. Aroma is caramel and straw malts, wet cardboard, light lemony citrus, floral hop. Light bodied, thin texture, some malt sweetness and the finish is long and bitter, a bit messy. Carbonation is soft.

redders1974 (1076) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Pretty standard golden ale taste wise but has a funny barnyardy aroma luckily taste better than it smells some citra and hops come through a bit syruppy finish with some bitterness
