Bottle. Pours a clear gold colour with a foamy white head. Toast, caramel, candy aroma. It’s OK - some pear, toffee, light sponge cake. Mild lemony bitterness. Fine.

a real surprise this and will definitely try again. Grassy hops with a citrus spice. Refreshing and so well balanced. Best new brew i’ve tasted in a while and a bit of a revelation.

My Bottom Line:
This quenching Golden Ale projects peppery and citrusy hops onto wet straw and honey before herbal hop bitterness balances everything out.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear gold.
-The flavour profile is well structured and balanced.
-Drinkability is optimal; I somehow believe this would have been better, more polished, on cask.
-The hop character is bright and delicate.

Golden without a head. Has a tasty grainy biscuit flavour, its pale ale tag on the label is more evident in its fruity nose.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Hay, grass and faint citrus.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Very light visible carbonation. Light lacing marks.
Taste: Very clean and mild. Flavours of freshly cut grass, earth and pear.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle.
Overall: Not the most flavoursome and it’s quite thin - like a cross between a Golden Ale and a Lager.

Pleasant floral aroma, lightly hopped with some citrus and grapefruit. Enjoyable session beer, could be more strongly hopped.

Like a lager with flavour. Guess that’s what golden ale is. Not my usual style - I was drawn by the ’pale’ in ’golden pale ale’. Light to drink. Quite refreshing. Very mild in taste - some citrus and hops. Not bad
