Cask conditioned at Charlie's Bar, Copenhagen. Fullers have finally "discovered" that golden ales have been in demand for a number of years. This is their attempt at this style. Golden colour, low head. Moderate hops in aroma and flavour, but nothing special here. Disappointing.

Served in a pint glass

A: golden, clear, small head, decent retention.

S: hoppy, grapefruit.

T: fairly sweet, light citrus, wheaty bitter finish provides balance.

M: smooth, crisp, light.

O: a proper session beer, subtle flavours keep you interested and provide depth but abv won’t cause problems.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

yeasty and wheaty aroma

tastes quite tart,like a bead -like cake,or a tea cake perhaps.

a bit watered down as it is fullers session beer and is probably the weakest of their main beers it is also not as good as there ESB , london Porter, or london pride,

little head on this honey colored (red/gold)ale
great hops and refreshing clean/dry after taste.
nice little ale as always with fullers

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a golden colour with a nice head that fades down quickly, minimal lacing too.

Smells faintly fresh and malty.

Tastes nice, well balanced between hops and malts with just a fresh citrusy kick.

Overall a lovely drinkable beer.

I had an Imperial pint of this at a pub on a recent visit to London. In general I don't live british ales (they're a little malty for my taste) but I always like to try something new. This one was pretty interesting and, from what I hear, new.

Appearance is blonde, as the name would suggest. Cask pull so not very carbonated. As with most english ales, very cloudy.

Aroma was a little light. Some malt, maybe a hint of hops.

Flavor was light but distinctly different from the other british ales. A little more bit and a bit more refreshing.

Overall a good beer, especially on a hot afternoon.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden to amber colour with a foamy white head on top. The head starts about a finger width tall before gradually reducing in size & leaving a thick, foamy lacing.

A sweet & incredibly fruity aroma. A strong citrus & tropical fruit mix that works well & is very summery on the nose.

Very sweet & quite fruity too although not as strong as the smell. There is some pineapple & citrus fruit along with a bread like taste. The finish is a mild bitter one.

Medium bodied & a little chewy on the tongue but highly drinkable with a slight fizz to it.

A real surprise & not what I was expecting from this beer at all. It is a lot more fruity than I would have though & very nice indeed.
