3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle: bought while at the brewery, BBD Feb 2015, opened at home on 7th March 2014.
Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard.
Pale golden body, almost lager like, the full white head also fell away, lager style!
Good hop aroma, not the usual citrus notes typical currently in the UK, this golden bitter has a proper non-citrus fruity aroma with hints of bitterness.
The hops carry on to rule the taste, bitter, fruity and thirst quenching. Very little maltiness throughout, a really good hop infused brew which even ’West Coast’ Americans would find interesting!

Bottle.Very clear appearance and an inviting aroma. An amazing amount of body for its strength. I had to check the label a couple of times. Fruity with warming citrus in the background. Not many people will get the chance to try this but its one worth looking out for.
