3.71/5  rDev -1.1%

Pale lemon clear body with spotty pure white head

Smells like a good pint of Boddies used to
peppery, yeasty and the aroma of brewing coppers.

Not far off bodies plenty of bitterness and citrus hints but with a sweetness brought about with honey tones

nicely carbonated easy drinking

a decent and gloriously reminiscent of the ghost of bitters past

not bad at all.

bb 180913 ap: pale gold, bubbles rising from base of glass, minimal head. ar: lemoney hop. ta: more malt than aroma suggested, effervescent in mouth due to high carbonation, fairly dry, medium bitterness. mo: oily, light bodied. ov: pleasant bitter, plenty of flavour. High carbonation dominates, I will leave beer in glass 10 minutes next time.

S: Gentle hop aroma

T: It's a fantastic bitter taste. Dry, crisp, with a good bitter finish.

M: Crisp.

O: I could drink a lot of these very happily!

4.2/5  rDev +12%

A: Pours clear golden with a medium-large white head, rather compact. Dissipates into nice lacings.

S: Grassy malts, caramell. Floral hops, some bitter ones in the back. Citirc notes. Bready and fruity. Some faint buttery notes.

T: Bitter hops together with caramell malts, a bit bready and only mild sweetness. Floral hops gives it fruit; mainly apples and oranges. Buttery.

M: Long creamy buttery bitter aftertaste. Very smooth. Body is medium while carbonation is held way back.

O: A nice complex Bitter that holds a little of everything, but never tries to hard.

3.78/5  rDev +0.8%

Handpump half-pint at the Windmill in Stratford-upon-Avon.

A: Clear gold body (surprise!) with a lovely finger of creamy white foam that shows strong retention and leaves comprehensive lace. Gorgeous golden ale.

S: Spicy floral hops, as well as some earthiness and apple. Solid.

T: Interesting. Starts out with profoundly earthy hops, followed by big fruitiness - apricot and pear stand out. Seriously bitter, somewhat astringent finish. I love its character and boldness, but the finish is way too harsh for its listed 3.8% ABV.

M: Smooth, light body with some fine cask carbonation. Ok.

O: I've got to give the ale credit - it delivered serious flavor and complexity in a pale, low-alcohol package. Not boring at all, and that's saying something. I do wish the finish had been a bit more elegant, but I'll take aggressive and slightly harsh over smooth and forgettable any day.

Cheers!

Appropriately golden in colour. Nice stable white head with some good coverage from the lacings.

Fresh aroma, lots of nice citrus fruit, but without the associated bitterness of a pale ale.

Clean up front, almost grainy, some good English fruit flavours. Nice satisfying citrus finish.

A golden ale that tilts towards and English pale. Very sessionable on cask, nice drink.

Brown 500ml bottle, best before 27th Apr 2009, drank 10 Mar 2009. Poured into an 'Old Speckled Hen' vase shaped pint glass.

Looked like a Lager/Pilsner, Pure Gold by name and looks it would seem.

Good English beery smell, hops and barley mixing togethr like they should. A sweetness is present but not enough to turn the aroma sickly, just a hint of summer gardens and flowers.

English Maris Otter and Cara Gold malts, hence the clour, the blend of Northern Brewer, Fuggles, Hereford Goldings and Styrian Goldings Hops ensure the taste follows the aroma to give a truely English feel to the taste and drinkability. The label goes on to say it has dry, bitter notes, it certainly does and it does it very well.

I am rapidly likeing this breweries products. The body is solid for a 4.3% bitter and it has a lot more flavour than the colour suggests. This is one very well balanced beer and very easy to drink. Pity I couldn't get the head to stay on the beer as i drank it.
