Golden Ale - a refreshing honey toned, golden ale.
Originally brewed in summer 2009 as Summer Gold, it was subsequently selected by J.D. Wetherspoon’s to feature in their April 2010 Beer Festival when the name was changed to Brigantia.
A honey toned, refreshing, hoppy, golden ale with gorgeous aromas of tropical fruit and grapefruit sharpness offset by hints of melon and pineapple; the result of large quantities of German, Brewers Gold hops.

Cask (handpump) at the Market Porter, Southwark, on 17 August 2010. Bright gold & clear, with good condition. Some citrus in the aroma. A bit thin in the mouthfeel but clean, with more citrus on the palate. Not dissimilar to the Derventio Augustus sampled shortly before but a little less zingy. Still, decent, refreshing stuff.
