3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral and grassy aroma with a thin white foamy head and golden appearance. The taste is very statisfying and refreshing. It is sweet, slightly bitter, malty with honeycomb, citrus, floral notes and caramel being the most prevalent flavors coming through. The mouth feel is medium bodied, medium carbonation with lacing sticking to the side of the glass as you drink. Overall an excellent beer best enjoyed outside on sunny day on its own or with food.

Prized ale from the famed brewery in Dorset, with a creamy white, mousse-like, sticky head, thin but very stable, as I would expect in an English ale. Colour a deep orange blonde, warm and bright with calm sparkling. Refined grassy and flowery hoppy aroma with a buttery sweetishness of pale malt, pear, apple peel, mango, elderberry, ginger. Taste an interestingly vivid and rounded fruitiness, honeyish sweetness, slick and creamy mouthfeel as is to be expected in a golden ale, slightly oily, nicely evolving from sweetish to bitterish with a quite sharp, leafy and peppery hoppiness in the background. Golden ale, as a modern acquisition to the family of English ales, is not my favorite style, but this one is clearly a great, well-balanced and refreshing brew.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Pours clear gold, long-lasting white head. Aromas are strongly floral, light metallic note, and earthiness I associate with Fuggles. Taste is fruity-sweet, light bitter. Oily texture, clean finish. OK.

Not keen on this. It pours light and fluffy and looks the part, but it’s way too sweet. Tastes almost off at times. There’s some fruit and grain trying to get in there but its overpowered by a nasty level of sweetness. Could be way better.
