BeardedAvenger (608) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2016
Cask at White Hart, Tongham. A vague hay/cereals aroma. Bright gold. White head, decent size but cobwebbed. Sweet with a bitter streak. Grapefruit, some hops, a hint of honey. Good body for a golden. Soft mouthful. Very drinkable.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Stonehenge Danish Dynamite, 5.0%, old school pump clip. First thing to note is that it is definitely not a golden ale as currently stated on RB. Its a very dark amber orange or brown, still with a tan cap. Aroma is quite airy and light, nutty, bread. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is toffeeish malt, some malt loaf, rye bread with fruits, toasted nuts, resinous finish. Quite clean tasting yet flavourful enough to be pleasant and moreish. Quite decent. Comes across like a special in the traditional sense. You dont get many beers like this around these days. Post-rate note. Seems like others drank a golden ale. So what am I drinking? definitely came from the pump labelled. Worth trying, whatever it is.

BlackHaddock (6986) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
Cask pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates Shropshire on 30th March 2016. Yet again a golden brew with a citrus based flavour and aroma: not as pronounced as some, but still along the same lines. This was OK, but as I am always saying " I am fed up with this style and type of beer". Scored kindly and objectively.

Cunningham (7567) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2016
Not much dynamite here. More an insult.
Golden color with a white head. Moderate aroma. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Malty and a bit fruity flavor. Dull stuff.
[Handpull at Bankers Draft (Wetherspoon) in Bedford, England]

Pale golden ale. Mildly hoppy with some citrus flavours. Good strength and well balanced on palate.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, 2.25/pint. Good-looking pale golden pour with a small, smooth, white head. The aroma is mild but pleasant with sweet, lightly perfumed floral and mildly fruity tones. Soft, sweet, pale malts front up the taste, pretty well balanced with some lightly grassy, crisp, dry hop flavours too. Decent strong golden ale.

BeerViking (4572) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Cask at the Moon under Water, Hounslow. Clear gold with a thin lacing head, nose has light notes of golden malt and lemon, plus a faint yeast hint. Dry and crisply bitter, medium-light bodied yet also warming, firm grapefruity bitter finish.

Towey1989 (2472) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of cereal malt, some biscuit, a little grain and lemon meringue. Taste of grain, cereal, some biscuit, slight lemon and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, grainy bitterness in the finish. Quite disappointed with this, malty and quite lager like with some citrus bitterness. Drinkable but quite bland overall.

Really pale yellow colour. Aroma and flavour have a lot of pale malts. Smooth, fresh session beer. Some sweet fruit syrup in the aftertaste.
