2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand pump at Bashamichi. Dark blond with big bubbles. A bit cloudy. Citrus nose, clean malts, not so fragrant but decent. Bready malt flavor, sweet and yeasty with sweet orange. A bit dull and strangely yeasty. Not great. This may have been falling in quality as it was near the end of the cask and others’ ratings seem to be much better…

4.6% on hand pump. Soft toffee and fruity nose. Very bright, soft and drinkable. A very good golden ale spiced up by the cascade hops.
