On cask at Yewdale Hotel, Coniston - Clear straw coloured, thin white head. Nose is citrus and a bit of tropical. Taste is crisp and dry, a bit flowery too. Nice though, but not a patch on what is on offer across the road.

AshtonMcCobb (4200) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Ambleside Wines. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - floral plus grapefruit and fresh sweat. Taste - resinous lemon and grapefruit with just a hint of pale malt in the background. Lemon and barley water really. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - after a day that involves a good amount of outdoor activities itís difficult to beat a golden ale that has been well executed.
