2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, handpump @ The Coal Orchard, Taunton, Somerset.
The head is shortlived, a fleeting loose froth of white atop a bright medium amber body. Fresh baked white bread, toasted oats, peach and orange marmalade and a little barnyard must on the nose. Watery palate, quite thin, grainy with light citrus notes and a dry, musty finish. Has a sour, tangy edge to it that builds around the swallow with a lingering toothpick and straw flavour. Pretty average stuff considering the level of British Golden Ales on offer. Not Bays best!
