3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Urban Tap House, Cardiff. Dark gold with a big creamy head. Aroma is a bit shy but comes out eventually: lemon and birchwood with a bit of autumn leaves. The Goldings really come out in the aroma. Moreish taste of bittersweet followed by an almost vegetable umami. Tasty. Nice full body for a golden cask ale. Everards, Charlie Wells, GK et al: thus us how you do it.

Cask at the Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear, dark golden colour with a thin, rocky white head. Aroma of orange peal, spice and citrus. Sharp citrus flavours balanced with some chewy malt and peach sweetness. Palate was balanced grain, grassy hop and caramel. Perfectly drinkable, but nothing mind blowing.
