Bottle Labelling "Gold". Bought from Asda in Tain at a bargain £1.25. Drunk at the bottom of Ben Hope and well earned!
Lovely golden beer, very crisp and thirst quencing, citrus notes. Slight hop note and honey hints. Very very nice.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very mild, slightly stale aroma of hops. Pours a nice golden colour with a white head that fades. The taste is pleasant however; hops, malts and something slightly sweet likew banana. Flavours are well balanced and it leaves a pleasant aftertaste. It also feels smoother in the mouth once it has settled. Difficult beer to rate, I didn’t like it at first but it grew on me and I’d try it again.
