Pours almost clear golden color, topped with a nice white frothy head. Mild fruity aroma, some flowery notes and a hint of elderflower. Taste is slightly sweet with some grassy hops to it, very mild bitterness in the finish and a bit watery. Drinkable, not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden ale di stampo inglese. Colore oro con scarsa schiuma bianca. Al naso fruttata e floreale. In bocca corpo medio. Bilanciata bene. Sapore troppo fruttato a mio parere. Lungo finale nel palato.
