"Our signature golden ale. Soft bitterness, melon and floral notes, a dry finish with tropical fruit". Nice floral hoppy aroma, easy drinking slightly fresh fruity taste, quite a dry finish.

Has a good hop aroma, and a great brown copper body; decent head. Flavour is nice hops, not too complex but not simple either. It’s a fine English bitter.
