Bottle from Whistlestop Wines, Saltburn. Pours amber with a big frothy off white head. Mild pine aroma. The taste has a good bit of pine to it as well. There’s some light herbal spice too, but this almost has the feel of a APA. A decent drop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a very large white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. Pronounced doughy yeast notes mix with floral and mandarin hops to create the aroma. Floral, orange and slight pine hops up front give way to a fairly light body, with white bread malt notes. Mandarin and mild spice hops come into the finish. A pleasantly refreshing golden ale.
