3.6/5  rDev -1.6%

Brown 500ml bottle, best before 29 April 2011, drank mid July 2010, so fairly fresh. Poured twice into a half pint sleeve.

The beer is a lovely golden colour (hence the name!), the snow white head sadly had no staying power although it did leave some heavy lacing on the glass.

The nose was hoppy as was the taste, sharp and refreshing. The label lists a host of hops used in the brew, buy a bottle to find out which!

Easy drinking and well worth trying.

Surprised to see I'm only the second reviewer of this beer on BeerAdvocate...

Appearance: Rich golden amber in color, quite clear, with a fluffy white one-finger head. Moderate retention, some lacing.

Smell: Fragrant, with floral hop notes and ale fruitiness on top of a biscuity/grainy malt backbone.

Taste: Well-balanced: bitterness is solid. Full of juicy fruit and biscuity malt notes, but finishes on a clean, dry note.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, light-medium body. Slightly objectionable aftertaste lingers.

Drinkability: Above average for the style.

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

Tasted this beer by half-pint at the Cross Key (Wetherspoon pub) in City, London.

Appearance: in a straight pint-glass it pours a light-amber hue, with a sparse, thin white head. Minimum carbonation.
Smell: very intensive, sweetish fruity aroma of green-date and not-overly-ripe lychee, with some "longan-fruit honey"'s delicious, fragrant aroma (without the pungent edge). Very straight-forward fruity, aromatic and pleasant!
Taste: on palate there is very softly bitter, Chinese green tea-like texture; light nutty malts and floral hops closely follow and gradually give way to profound and dry bitterness which lingers well in the throat.
Mouthfeel & Drinkability: overall it's a full-flavoured, medium-full bodied pale ale, with good depth and a vertical structure of malts and hops, which could have been more pronounced to make this beer a really great brew. Nonetheless it's still a very tasty and quaffable beer to enjoy either alone or with a bunch of good friends.
