This review is from a handpulled cask pint at a local pubs beer festival, drank on 14th sept 2007.

Light amber body with a well formed white foaming head, the pint sleeve glass shows the beer off well.

The aroma is slight, floral, hoppy and hay smells.

The sweetness can catch you out, if you are not aware it is coming, it isn't sickly or overstated, but that is its main feature. Hops and an English country garden feel to this beer make it a very pleasant ber to drink.

The flavours do stay for a while and the sweetness fades to leave a more bitter taste in the mouth.

A good solid bitter, if a little paler in colour than I normally prefer.

This is really just a decent English bitter with a bit more alcohol. Other raters claim that the bottle is more heavily hopped than the draught version - that might be true, at least the golden beer in front of me has a lovely hoppy aroma and a nice bitterness. Good head. Rather light bodied (too light?), which makes the brewery advertize it as "deceptively drinkable". Very refreshing it is, would like to sample the draught version too.

It seems to me that the style English Pale Ale covers a broad spectrum of taste in beer.
This is certainly at the enjoyably acceptable end of that spectrum.
It pours a little flat , or else I was too cowardly in trying to develop a head on it.
Lack of head aside the beer is pale orange to brown incolour. It smell and taste are fruity hops all over. It is not particularly bitter which blends well with the overall feel of softness and potent drinkability.
I suspect that a non nitro can would see this ale at its worst and would be very very nice from a cask.
Yet again and English beer to sadden the heart ,knowing the unavailability of such pleasurable beers

Light copper with a thin but steady layer of foam. Fresh, doughy, slightly fruity aroma. Well balanced, light sweetness and gentle hop flavor combine with a light-medium but satisfying mouthfeel. A flavorful and skillfully drawn pint on a rainy London afternoon. A tasty pint from a well tended cask and cellar. Swiped some cool beer mats too!

this is the best of the badger brewery ive tasted, ive had 4 or 5 of there beers and there all nice but this ones the best.

nice dirty blond color almost brown, with 1.5 finger of head, leaves nice lace marks as you drink it.

smells yeasty as soon as you open it, i could smell it from my waist hight like more than two feet from my nose. lost of bready wheat smell.

nice weighty mouthfeel with lots fruity complexity, some apple some citrus, some sour green grapes, lots of fruityness, my favotie part of this beer is the malty yeasty taste, tastes like a pastry.

best beer ive had form this popular ale brewery, buy tangle foot before the other ones.

Served from a hand pump at The Prince Edward, Notting Hall/Bayswater.

Dark amber with a thin head. Good malty scent, with light fruity hops. Nicely balanced malt and hop taste; biscuits, light fruits. Nice English ale/bitter taste. Mild carbonation, a bit thick. ABV is a bit higher than expected, but certainly doesn't impact the drinkability (4.9% ABV on cask). Good beer, nice example of a bitter.

A - Slightly dark with weak head in the canned version.

S - Fruity and quite sweet.

T - Very pleasant almost flowery flavour. Slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. Quite impressed.

M - Decent enough carbonation and light.

D - As it says on the can deceptively drinkable. Can't disagree with that.

Definitely will be looking for the cask version of this. Pretty decent for a canned version though.

Pours a light amber color with one-finger head that kicks off decent lace on the side of my Fuller's pint glass.
Aromas noted include plae malt, bitter hops, minor spice, some grain and a hint of butter. Slightly metallic, possibly oxidation of maybe hard water.
Flavor was nicely spiced with modest malt and a nice warming alcoholic kick on the back end. Metallic aftertaste was noted but very light, again can't figure if oxidation or minerals in the water,.
Mouthfeel was smooth and silky and alcohol was nice and warming.
Drinkability is relatively high, love to find a cask of this in my favorite pub in Britain and hunker down by the fire.

Poured from a 500ml clear glass bottle, small head, golden colour.

Delicate, moderate, malt aromas, reminds me of an English beer garden, followed by an equally moderate taste. Hops are there, but don't dominate. Nicely balanced overall. This is good old fashioned beer, not extreme.

Given that, I'd give this 5 for drinkabilty but it's so delicate it seems not quite right to award that high.

A great session ale, but sadly not gonna do that given the price in Aus.
