A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 330 ml bottle labelled "Black Isle Organic Goldeneye Pale Ale", pours clear amber with a medium sized beige bubbly head. Aroma and taste of citrus, apricots, honey and bread. Medium body and carbonation, medium bitterness with some sweetness. A well balanced enjoyable beer.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle. Deep fruity nose, overripe citrus fruit, lime and rind, with a full complement of yeast behind it all. Light copper color, with a 1cm light tan head and some lace. Ripe peachy initial, some thin phenolic notes (in flavor but not nose) intrude, orange marmalade with chewy rind, and decent back-end bittering with long tracks. Thin-medium body. Interesting, quite fruity. The smoke or phenolic thing does not really detract so much here,

Little head and nice light amber colour. Nice hops on the nose. Some maltiness as well. I get some yeasty tones as well. Taste is more malt and some pretty nice deep flavours of caramel and hint of smoke. Quite drinkable.
