Clear golden beer with a few bubbles and a frothy head. Smells of hop and slight citrus. Flavour isnít particularly strong of anything really. The hop is there still with a zesty tang to it but thereís not a lot else going on. The finish is quite dry and pleasant though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden in colour with a thin white head. Deep aroma of bready yeast, malt and funky hop, pungent and aromatic at the same time. Initial sweetness gives way immediately to a huge bitterness. Rich mouthfeel of juicy malt with a vanilla background, citrus tastes and a long, dry finish. Gently carbonated and dangerously drinkable. Great.

Bottle, Morrisons, 15/01/2016
Spring elderflower taste. Well carbonated. Excellent condition. Some slight grassy notes. White grape. Low acid. Clean. Easy-drinking. Great spring ale. I really donít think this can be bettered for the style. It can go bad easily if kept hot hence why ratings are low and I really donít understand the low ratings as this is exactly what you want for a spring/golden ale. Great hop combination. Super soft malts. Super clean. CO2 in the tank. Excellent.

The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, grassy, toasted grain, straw, white bread, orange oil and a touch of peppery spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, clean and has a nice level of bitterness. Decent golden ale.

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.
