My Bottom Line:
Lemongrass, ginger and citrus fruit morph into grass and resinous bitterness in this silky, quenching Golden Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam laces atop the misty pale yellow.
-The mouthfeel is well endowed for a 3.5% brew.
-This is a bit like Hophead’s little cousin.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Malts offer a few crackers too.
On cask at The Hobgoblin, Brighton.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gravity cask at the St Neots ’Booze on the Ouse’ Beer Festival 2016. Light to mid-gold, clear, with a small amount of loose white head. Sharp tropical fruit citrus smell mixes with a bit of musty hop, ammonia and sulphur. Taste is punchy and bitter with a sweet fruity note rounding it off before the final dry bitter aftertaste. Not overly keen but it’s OK.
