This year’s supply of First Gold hops represent a return to form for the variety, hence this beer’s comeback! Pale beer with classic English hop aroma, light biscuit mouthfeel and lip-smacking finish.

Christian (11981) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 3, 2009
Golden with a small, but lasting white head. Floral hops some grass and a hint of lime in the aroma. Very bitter with citrus and herbal hop flavours. It has the great Crouch Vale malt backbone to carry the hops, and a more pleasant bitterness than the amarillo.

From cask at Charlies. Pours clear and golden yellow with a lacing white and creamy head. Nice fruity hops aroma with light grapefruit and orange touch. Nice fruity hoppy flavour with a light caramel malt base. Ends with a lingering fruity accent and a growing dry bitterness. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Nice one.
