Based on the "Golding Hop" it’s lightly pronounced floral flavour/aroma is derived from dry hopping with Golding hops, which really show through on drinking. A well-rounded beer with a satisfying after taste.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Cask half-pint in The Three Crowns, Oakham on 15th March 2016. Clear amber hue to the deep orange/brown body, good lacing from the off-white head. Aroma was an easy blend of light malts, nuts and grassy hops. The flavour was semi-sweet yet with a bitter undertone. A typical English Bitter, I liked it.

Mr_Pink_152 (4205) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Tried at the Victoria in, Lincoln. Amber colour with a white head. Fruity and caramel aroma and taste, thin body, but a very drinkable bitter.

jjsint (2576) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Cask at the Parcel Yard, Leicester. Ruddy brown, thin and translucent with a sizeable white head. Vinous metallic smell, not unpleasant but not particularly enticing from a beer perspective. Bittersweet herbal taste with a full earthy hop finish. Medium body. As basic as you like. Nothing exciting about this recipe, but I enjoyed it enough as a one-off.

Cask at The Parcel Yard, Leicester. Looks a decent pint - small dense head atop clear amber body. Standard bitter with a pleasant slight sweet yeastiness at the end and lingering bitterness. Ok.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2006
Cask, handpump @ the Market Porter, Southwark.
Bright copper with a very thin film of white that dissipated quickly (dirty glass?). Couldn’t pick up much aroma as by now the bar was packed and Silktork was in full swing with the appreciation of cask ales. Upfront it shows some toffee and rye-like malt tones before the flowery, earthy depth of Goldings come in around mid-palate. Mildly bitter on the swallow. Picked up an odd fell-berry flavour with some earthy hops and woody malt in the aftertaste. Quite a nice bitter, not too heavy. Well balanced, smooth and very easy to drink.
