Sunrise Ale
A warming golden yellow coloured ale, brewed using no coloured malt just pale ale malt. Intensely fragrant aroma of citrus fruit and floral notes, this beer has complex flavours of malt, sweetness, bitter oranges, and honeysuckle. A succession of waves of flavour burst upon the sense, eager to be enjoyed.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, day 3, on 4 May 2012. Clear gold. No head. Not much condition. Light citrus notes but nowhere near as fragrant as the description would have you believe. Pleasant enough but nothing spectacular. As usual these days at beer festivals there were a lot of similar golden ales on offer and they need to be something special to stand out from the crowd. This one didn’t. However, as can also be the case at beer festivals, condition didn’t seem as good as it could have been. Flagged for re-rate.
