chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011
On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. The latest in a seemingly endless procession of golden ales at this festival. Nothing particular in this one to distinguish it from the opposition. Clear gold colour. Some fruity hops but finishes quite dry. Just a touch of citrus. Respectable. Should probably try it again without the distraction of so many similar beers.
