500ml Brown bottle brewed by Batemans for the Aldi Supermarket chain: this one had a best before date of 30 Apr 2012, I poured it into my Abbot Ale glass tankard on 3 Mar 2012.

As its name implies, this is a golden pale colour: well actually it is more leaning towards a copper/amber hue to my eyes. The head is a healthy looking white crown of large bubbles, minute trails rise through the clear, bright body.

The aroma is of slightly cirtusy hops and baked malty bread.

The taste is again hoppy and on the dry, bittering side, almost grapefruit in its sourness and citrus undertones. Refreshing is most likely the best word to use, this isn't flavoursome or rich, this is a Pale Ale with a bite and some alcohol kick. When remembering it is a cheap supermarket beer it represents good value and I'd certainly think about buying more if my beer budget has to shrink in the future.
