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.

Bitter flavour, light bodied with a crisp mf. Dry malty base fruity and slightly herbal hops; dry and bitter finish with a very discreet and late arriving malty sweetness.

DuffMan (6645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle, shared by Parksy. Medium golden, eternal clingy white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, wet wood. Lighter palate, faintly floral notes are crushed by a dry pithy bitterness. Really dry. Some boxboard oxidation in the finish. Just okay.
