A refreshing blonde ale generously hopped to give bitterness and aroma that packs a punch. Great with spicy food.

stravale (2478) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle @ Copper Still, Dromod [180314]
Blonde, slight haze, frothy dense white head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus hops, soft grapefruit, sweet fruity pale malts, some tropical fruit in there, fruity nose
Taste of fresh citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sweet fruity pale malts, touch of biscuity malt, dab of pine, grapefruit zest,
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite oily, good mouthfeel, sweet pale malts, decent hoppy citrus bite. Finish as main flavour with a nice lingering sharp citrus zest
Overall - A lot of these bottled golden ales are rather dull and insipid - this is not the case - really decent blonde, plenty of flavour. Found it better quite chilled

Theydon_Bois (12568) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle at mum and dads, from Callans, 18/01/14. Hazed golden with a big old off white head that dissipates a touch but retains. Nose is bitter orange, toasted malts, dank hop notes, straw, orange marmalade, light mineral notes, bitter apricots. Taste comprises straw, bitter orange, citric tang, earthy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy bitterness in the closure. Ok GB affair.
