   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - OCT 11, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light, slightly sweetish beer, there is a honeyed, malty body leading to a fruity, strawberry finish. A touch of bitterness in the close, just could do with more body.

Theydon_Bois (19506) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Cask at the Duke of Wellington, Norwich, 20/11/16. Clear golden blonde with a moderate off white head. Nose is straw, pale malts, grains, lemon rind. Taste comprises citric drizzle, bready malts, straw, grains, grass. Medium bodied, soft catbonation, semi drying close. So so gold ... Whelming stuff ... yawn.

Grumbo (2947) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Cask handpull at the Shadingfield Fox, Suffolk. Pours straw coloured with a small lasting white head. Light fruity floral aroma. Quite sweet, very light bitterness. Light body, texture is creamy. Dry fruity finish. Nice one.

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle (in Sept 2012) - Yellow in colour. Fruity; lemon citrus. Malty; sweet biscuity malts, honey, some vanilla. Hoppy; slight grassy hops. Lightly citrus bitter with honey notes on the finish. OK. Easy drinking.

Beese (2741) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge on 24 November 2013. Poured a slightly hazy, pale golden colour with a tight white head. Aroma had definite hints of stem ginger along with floral hops and honey. Flowery hops at the fore with notes of grain and pineapple. Finish had corn, cereals and wet grass. Fairly uninspired golden ale, with a couple of jarring flavours...

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottled 27/06/13. A very hazy yellow orange coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A full bodied sweetish beer. Definite honey although not as sickly as some. Pretty well rounded and good enough.

fonefan (49305) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2013

Cask (gravity) @ The 18th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2012, Reading, Berkshire England.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, pale malt, light to moderate butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, fruity hops, butter, malty, fresh. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120505]

The_Osprey (7985) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
March 2013 - room temp bottle. Light colour. Smells of mixed citrus. Taste: There’s a bit of honey and lemon up front, then a soft bitterness. A good balance, and the flavour is a lot better than I was expecting. A decent brew, if slightly watery.

BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
500ml bottle @ home on 27 Dec 2012: bottle best before Sep 2013, poured into a UK pint sleeve. Very pale and cloudy body: the sort of colour you’d phone the doctor about if you’d passed it! Especially if you had the same head of white foam on top. Citrus notes run through the whole brew: both the nose and taste dominated by the hop content with the malts and honey (used in the brew) not really getting a look in. Yeasty at times, but those heavy lemon and grapefruit citrus flavours soon take over again. Not a huge citrus hop fan, but this was OK.

zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Team Valley, Gateshead. A pale yellow hazy ale with floral hoppy notes, citrus, honey? and a bitter-sweet finish.

sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2012
Cask - The Lawyer, Norwich. A clear golden yellow colour with a creamy, one-finger, lacing white head with fair retention. It’s a crisp, citrus-forward golden with some apple on the nose and a delicate sweetness running throughout (though I wouldn’t have said this was was due to added honey). Light to medium body, softish mouthfeel, lingering, medium intensity hoppy finish. Refreshing & quaffable.
