Lovely light refreshing golden ale, perfect for summer sessions or to quench the thirst after coming down from a long day in AW’s hills. Hints of citrus and clean to the palate.

Draught (Mitre, Cambridge)
Lovely milky black tea aroma. Sweet fruity malty taste. Palate as smooth as suade. Lovely fruity esters in the mouth, black tea there too. Such a simple bitter, but an absolute classic one.

As far as session English golden ales go on tap this is a well crafted ale - no big flavours here but a clean, fresh balanced malty ale with plenty of body. I detected a slight corny taste but i feel it blended in nicely. Dont compare this to the bottle, they’re leagues apart.

Cask in The Hesketh Arms, Southport, England. A light straw-coloured beer with an off white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and roasted malt. Smooth, fruity taste with low bitterness. O.K. for a Golden Ale. Light but not too interesting.

Pint at the John Duck, Durham. Golden in colour with a frothy white head. Weak aroma of faint bread. The flavour is slightly plastic, and weak golden ale notes. Not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Potters Bar, Meir Heath (Marstons) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, orange, a little peach, slight biscuity malts and subtle floral hops. Taste of lemon, some orange, a little peach, maybe apricot, slight biscuity, bready malts and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, slightly tangy, fruity finish. A lot fruitier than I thought, not that appearing but very drinkable. Ok.
