3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 it’s difficult to beat a golden ale that has been well executed.

From the bottle. Pale golden with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Full-on citrus with a slight sweetness, light malt and a smooth bitter finish. Very nice indeed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tarantella, Ambleside. Not so much gold as an extremely pale yellow. Small head that disappeared quite quickly. Very mild aroma of hints of citric fruits. Tastes mildly bitter with a relatively short finish. Some grapefruit and lemon with bittersweet hops. Refreshing and it complemented my meal well enough but I’m not sure it would have had enough about it to stand out when being drunk on its own. Okay. Probably a great session ale.

On cask at The Stagg’s Beer Festival, 2011. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite biscuity with lots of oats, some caramel and a little apple. Big upfront oat flavour also with a little grass, yeast and barley. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel.
