3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a barley wine style aroma of caramel, candy sugar, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with alcohol fairly present . Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Definitely made me think of a barley wine more than a stout.

750ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Golden yellow colour, big foamy head. Cereal biscuit & tropical fruit aroma. flowery biscuit citrus flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not sure about the "blonde stout" or English Strong Ale classification. It is more like a Belgian Blonde. Nonetheless it is still a good beer.

Opening with a resounding pop of the swing top bottle, the immediate note is one of zest, Lemon or Orange, which unfortunately reminded me of some cleaning products. In the mouth the beer is initially very sweet so doesn’t give many clues to the alcohol of the beer. It has a rather vegetal quality on the finish, with the coriander seed adding an earthy spice rather than the more floral notes one would get from a coriander leaf. Initially I though this had little to offer a first, but it grew on me. Not a stout, but worth a punt.

’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. And thanks to Paul for this one. Light haze on this gold beer, tiny white head. Has the nose of a Belgian golden. Smooth palate, dry with fine carbonation. The Belgian Gold feel carries on with some spice in the strong pale malt. Trace of citrus. Semi dry finish with a trace of citrus.
