2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Road, Cambridge. Dark gold, over-carbonated. Little white head sitting proudly on the top. Sweet smell of caramel/taffy, somewhat sickly if truth be told. Taste isnít much better: sweet and malty with a misplaced spiciness. The flavour in the finish is short, but the heavy carbonation lingers on the tongue. I just donít care for it all that much. I should say that Iím not (usually) a fan of First Gold hops, so this was never going to appeal to me.
