Pale gold with frothy head, aroma of malt and hops with a hint of pepper and pineapple. Flavour is carbonated, sweet and fruity , pleasant but a little too sweet for me, the hoppy aroma is not matched by the flavour which is overpowered with sweetness, and the hops don't really get a look in. My bottle is labelled "Organic Golden Ale" not IPA, I think it's an OK summer ale, if you don't want strong hoppy flavours, - best served cold. Rather bland and lacking character, imo.

A. Gold body.
S. Metallic and bready.
T. Bready and metallic. Grainy like a pilsner. Fairly biiter but no hoppy flavours. It's all wrong.
O. Can't believe how dull this Fuller's offering is. They're mostly hit but sometimes miss.

Light golden colouor, small head that fades soon, leaving a big lace. Smell of honey, cookies, bread. Medium body, taste of honey, caramel, bread. Drinkable.

Pours deep yellow, with a very mild white foam head, needed to pour very hard to achieve it and it disipates quickly. Smell is sweet of malts and honey, hops are almost imperceptible. Taste is bready, like cracker bran, grains, malts, almost no honey nor hops. Low body with very low carbonation. Interesting beer, taste and looks donĀ“t match, but are not bad at all.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a deep golden topped by a mountainous, white head that is seemingly endless. Moderate amount of lacing.

S- Distinct smell of Honey, along with a Saaz like hoppiness.

T- Big hit of honey up front with a Saaz-like hopiness to finish it out. Hops seem to overpower everything else in an aggressive manner.

M- High Carbonation and light-medium body. Quite over-carbonated for the style. The beer practically wanted to shoot out of the bottle as soon as the cap was lifted.

O- Not a bad beer but certainly not the best beer brewed by Fullers.

Distinct smell of honey. Not too strong tastewise, regular ale with hints of honey and aftertaste of biscuit. Found it to be a little flat. Overall, a solid beer, though nothing special.
