Cask, gravity Merton Summer Beer Festival July 2005, retrospectively added from notes Pours golden in colour initially a tad sweet but the bitterness is there, reasonable hoppiness and fruitiness the sweetness returns again, its ok. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Shepheard Neame has an ale for all seasons and this is its Summer offering - Golding by name, Gold by nature! It has a golden colour and a golden taste to match. The taste is very hoppy, slightly sweet and very bitter - tastes stronger than it is. This has now been replaced as Neame’s Summer Ale by the inferior organic Whitstable Bay. "Bring back Goldings for Summer 2007 those boys from Faversham" pleads I! DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2006

Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Bronze colour. Aroma of boiled vegetables and tiger balm. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. A simplistic ale that I would’ve guessed were poured from a can.

(Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg) - Dark golden colour. very aromatic hoppy, buttery nose. An easy drinking seasonal from sheps, with a good balance between the soft flowery notes from the goldings hops, and a slight biscuity dry sweetness towards the end.

Cask. Dark copper colour. Green apple flavour and aftertaste. OK pint, but too boring for me. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2005
Cask at The Cricketers, Canterbury
Now normally I like the Shepherd Neame seasonals, but this pint was the bottom of the barrel and I had to return it. Landlord was very good and took it off sale straight away and went and changed barrel. I will re-rate when I have a better pint.

Cask Conditioned at Bicester Beer Festival, Gravity dispensed. Pale gold beer with slight head. A little undistinguished at this festival, casks kept in a marque!. Dry tea like hops, maybe some tangy lemon notes but a dull dry malty background. A decent beer trying to get out.
