Bottle from Tuckers Maltings or Darts Farm. Hazy golden, quite big white head. Hoppy nose with a touch of lime. Malty with lemony hops, and hoppy flavours that remind me of good aromatic hops in a (south) German Pilsener.

Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2016)
Dull orange. Slightly sweet malty aroma, which is quite pleasant. Anna likes it more, I’m not up for hot goldes any more. Some honey in taste, but it’s all rather bland. Nothing actually wrong, just boring.

Slightly dishwashing-liquidy nose with some cereal and a bit of malt. Pours a gentle gold with a fluffy head. Flavour is more cereal notes with some biscuity malt coming through. Little to no hops. Finish is slightly sour. Average.
