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.

JohnCook101 (349) - - 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.

Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grass, floral hops and caramel. Flavour of mild floral hops, biscuity malts, bread, resin and caramel. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter malty finish. Not at it’s best anymore.

olio (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2012
50 cl bottle.
Pours pale clear golden color with a large head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus fruits and caramel. Flavor is pretty much the same with some floral and herbal notes on the finish. Bitter and crisp palate. Better and certainly hoppier than I expected.
