A quintessential golden ale brewed for refreshing easy drinking. Our soft Highland water allows the full floral flavour of the hops to come through the beer.

500ml brown bottle. Golden pour, fairly clear, some haze. Frothy white cap, dense, good retention, good lacing. Nose has fruity malts, light citrus hops - getting lemon and orange. In the mouth the beers has a crisp pale malt base, mild citrusy bitterness that carries into the finish. Soft fruitness and a light mineral note. Light body and soft carbonation. Nice session ale.

Tap at cask. Golden with white head. Nearly no aroma. Nearly no taste. Not offensive I suppose. Practically water

reebtogi (5190) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
500ml bottle pours golden in color with a finger of white head which leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and floral hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with a light floral hoppy bitterness throughout. Surprising amount of body given its ABV and some good carbonation as well. Overall, this is a pretty good blonde ale and it was a pleasure to have sampled this one.
