Pale gold in colour, with a crisp malt edge and sharp bitterness. Plateau has been hopped at different stages of the brew , with a big mix of US & NZ hops to satisfy the discerning drinker. Full in flavour, zesty, refreshing & low in alcohol, this beer will have you returning to the bar for another.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
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.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
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.
