Hand-pulled pint in the Brewery Tap at the National Brewery Museum, Burton-on-Trent on 10 Apr 2013.

Golden (and almost) delicious as the name claims: light golden in fact with a full white head that produced some impressive lacing.

Floral and fruity nose with a taste that is very simular, with a semi-sweet maltiness throughout the beer.

Mid-bodied and easy to drink: a better than average brew.

(Notes of 24/09/2007) Tasted by a half-pint at the New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield; served by a sparkler-pour in a half-pint nonic glass.

A: dark cider-ish golden in colour, with slightly haze, topped with a thin but firm white frothy head to last.
S: wheat malts and sharp citric+grassy hops abound, plus light caramely malts; as it warms, plus a swirl, the lightly earthy edge of hops is awaken. Hoppy and aromatic all in all, but not complex.
T: rather soothingly grainy pale malts develop on the palate along with a semi-herbal and semi-lemongrass taste of bitter hops; turning quite dry as well as bittersweet malty in the end, like a Czech premium lager in some ways. Also, the lingering herbal bitterness and corn-ish grainy aroma are both pronounced and pleasant, serving to prolong the joy somewhat.
M&D: this is a soft and subtly-textured pale ale, not too bold in terms of hoppiness or bitterness, but still thirst-quenching in its own way.

Had this at NERAX 2007 FRI night

Bright gold with a fluffy white head.

Egg salad attack in the nose, mixing with sweet malt and hoppy freshness. Maybe I'm finally getting used to sulfury beers, but I rather like it.

Light-bodied, with a bready, toasty malt and resiny orange. More orange in the finish.

Thin and grainy, with some citrus and caramel, a bit simple and boring, no flavour really poked its head out at me. Some mild bitterness on the finsh, and some refreshing citrus zingyness, but in the end i expected more from this brewer.(Cask -GBBF 03')
