3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
No aroma to speak of and only its name and history keep it from being classed as a golden ale. Pleasant on the palate and not in the least bit sweet, the over-riding flavour is of freshly baked bread. Surprisingly bitter finish. Very drinkable.
