BOBBDrinker (67) - - APR 27, 2013
A deep golden beer closer to a light amber in my opinion. A highly carbonated ale which pushes the loving aromas of hops, grapefruit and gooseberry unfortunately these aromas are poorly executed in the taste. This golden beer is slightly bland with a distinct bitterness from the hops there is some subtle flavours contributed by the malts but it makes for a very drinkable beer.

berkshirejohn (6611) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2017
50cl bottle from Longacres Garden Centre, Windlesham. A basic golden ale; pale amber with a tight white head; dusty aroma with some citrus; sweet biscuity malt body; some weak grassy hops; and a biscuity finish.

JPC1524 (220) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with thin white head, good carbonation. Malty aromas. Pleasant malts with subtle citrus hop finish. Easy drinking.

huineman (728) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 6, 2017
50 cl bottle labeled as Shakesbeer, bought at Selfridges Food Hall, London. Pours clear amber, almost no head. Aroma is mostly esters, alongside some rotten nuts. Taste is watery, thin-bodied, insipid. Slightly bitter finish, with hints of fusels. Bad.

zacgillbanks (5429) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle from Asda, Metrocentre, Gateshead. Bright golden coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has a light toffee and slight floral fruity flavour followed by thin, smooth finish. Lacking in flavour somwehat.

500ml bottle at home, from Dobbies, Old Toll, by Ayr, caramel, lagery aroma, golden with no head, bit of floral, maybe cereal, not much hops, oily.

danlo (3178) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
500ml bottle from ASDA, Telford. Clear golden colour, thin white foam head and malty, caramel aroma. Taste is malty, with some fruity, citrus notes, straw and light bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry dusty light bitter finish. OK

2.9
hohops (1065) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Appearance is (unsurprisingly) golden, with a small white head. Aromas of zesty fruit, lemons, hops, some floral notes, hints of honey. Smooth taste, not overly bitter until the end, fresh hops, slightly biscuity, citrussy finish, quite refreshing. Solid ale.

3.2
foxo82 (923) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from Asda. Golden bitter, hoppy and dry with s lingering bitterness. Decent ale here.

2.6
niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
On cask at The Huntsman, Cheadle. Pours golden, very dry palate. Lagery tint, not my thing.
