Mmm, quite why this is classified as a Pale Ale I’m not sure. Golden Ale on the label, and a golden beer in the bottle – fair enough!
Yellow pour with a small, well formed head. VERY light in every department. You can tell it is a real ale – JUST – but in terms of taste, aroma and general character there is almost none. A cross between a watered down wheat beer and a lager, the beer quickly loses its way and falls into nomansland. Light, floral notes and not much else.
I think that this is a classic examle of a serious brewer attempting to pander to a perceived (ar indeed real) market of people that don’t like real ale much. A very odd product for Fuller’s to be producing.
