themightylazza (108) - - NOV 9, 2015
Golden ale, stale hippy aroma, carbonated rather tasteless flavour, dryish finish. This is really not very good, there is a slight lemony note but it is more or less devoid of flavour. We expect better these days, I’m afraid

jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
2015-09-27. Crisp golden yellow body with a creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, light grassy hops and malt. Flavour is similarly muted with mild pale malt, light hoppy bitterness. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Inoffensive but dull. Cask at Duck and Drake, Leeds.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Cask at The John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint. A pale blonde beer with a thick, white head and slight visible carbonation. The aroma is pleasant and floral but simultaneously has plenty of malt and dairy touches. The nose portends the flavour precisely with some floral hop bitterness but well balanced with wheaty, biscuit malt flavours and short, crisp finish. It’s weakened by an overly grassy aftertaste but is still enjoyable. It’d be great as a summer session beer but otherwise is pleasant if uninspired.

Clear amber, small but dense white head holds back any real aroma. Light malt, quite floral. Slightly weak, watery middle, lightly hoppy mild bitter finish. Decent enough but not particularly memorable.

AshtonMcCobb (6670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
On cask at the Old Well in Barnard Castle. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Slight hop haze. Nose - lemon, meadow flowers, even a bit of fresh sweat. Taste - more lemon, quite sweet heading to lemon curd Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - decent golden ale but more bitterness required if it’s going to be a true guzzler.

Bland golden beer, no flavour or aroma. This is why people don’t like beer!

3.2
wheresthepath (2342) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Cask at The Outlook, Reading. Vivid clear gold with a large white head. Initially it’s a bit thin and bland with just a hint of caramel and citrus. The hops take a while to wake up but eventually come through to give orange and a fresh leafiness and a mild but lasting and growing bitterness. There’s a bit of creaminess which doesn’t quite go with the hops- it needs to be crisper. Nevertheless it’s a better-than-average golden ale.

3.1
jjsint (3203) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Cask at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Clear deep golden with an impressive white head and a fair bit of lacing. Grassy cereal aroma with a hint of vegetable. Taste is an improvement: a bittersweet malty base with fades to a pleasant bitter finish. Not much to it though. I remember this being better.
