A light pale ale with a refeshing fruity flavour. I was quite impressed considering it's from the Fullers stable.

Richly coloured dark golden ale. Sharp and bitter from the start. Dry hoppy aftertaste. Good session beer for bitter, bitter drinkers.

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.

A light golden ale with an impressive looking pump clip. I tried a pint and found it to be light in aroma and subtle in flavour. If Fullers are going to get into the golden ales catagory they need to do a little better than this. This ale has potential but requires a little more flavour. Even though it was a little lacking it wasn't horrible. Try a pint and see what you think?

Light golden bitter with a fruity taste. Not the best 'Blonde' bitter tasted, but worth a try.

[on draught at the Corn Stores, Reading] Despite the supposedly different hops, this is clearly a Fullers beer - tastes a bit like Chiswick (Dusty straw, earthy tones) with much of the flavour boiled out and a big dash of lemon added. In short, it tastes like they've tried to create a golden ale by amending one of their existing bitters rather than by setting out to create a new beer. It's not bad, but there's nothing special here. Especially disappointing considering the usually great brewery it's come from.

Sampled this amber ale in the Blackbird, Earl's Court London in July 2008. Pale clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight dusty hop aroma and thin mouthfeel. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit malt with an orange peel fruityness. This combines well enough with the bitter hop resins to give a reasonable balanced effort. Rather stick with ESB though!
