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.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2010
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.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2010
Cask handpull at the Ledger Building (JDW), Canary Wharf. Hazy pale gold thin white head. Looks like a German wheat beer. Lemon light tasty wheat beer perfect for summer drinking. Little bit weedy but its Fine. Some decent dryness on finish. Tad herby. Could do with being served colder too.

Wundoo (3) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2010 does not count
Wetherspoon’s conditioned. I thought this was a superbly balanced ale - perfect for an afternoon session. Floral, fruity (lemon, pineapple, mango, pineapple, apple) and bitter but with just enough sweetness (honey) to make you want another half dozen. Excellent example of an English golden ale.
