COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Available occasionally on cask as Priors Gold.
A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Deep amber colovur nice tanned thick head. Aroma is lovely sweet orange fruit taste to follow with a fresh zesty spicy thing and a slight dry bitterness. Well balanced with a good body :-) Great beer

500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Light gold colour with foamy white head that lasted all the way, with a few yeast floaters. Grapefruit and malt aroma with a floral hint. Good balance of malt and hop in the taste. Good long, dry ending.

kingstoni (1508) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Hazy copper color with a medium thick head. Visible yeast sediments. I lost 2/5 of the total contents while opening bottle as it spread all over the floor. That takes away 3 of my overall points. Aroma of caramel, citrus and floral hops. Medium bitter taste with some sweetness.

JohnCook101 (321) - - MAR 29, 2013
500ml bottle. Cloudy amber with a frothy white head. Mild hoppy and grassy aroma. A little watery to begin but then come flavours of grass and a little tropical fruit with plenty of hops. A good, lasting bitterness at the end. Malt flavours build as you work your way through the glass. A bit too gassy which made it a bit hard to drink, but pretty nice.
