Aroma: light grain and hay malts, some grass hops. Appearance: clear yellow, small, frothy white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: short, bitter finish, light body, flat carbonation. Overall: nice Golden Ale, yet really struggles to stand out, nice taste, bit short palate. Pint at the GBBF 2014, Kensington.
