3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ GBBF 2014. Quite dark for a Golden Ale. The beer starts malty, fresh. Easy to drink with earthy hints. The malty body is very subtle so there is a nice taste of the hops. The mainpart is flowery earthy, easy to drink with only a moderate bitterness. On the tongue remains a smooth, fresh and nice earthy aroma with a low bitterness. Nice!
