1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gareshead. Bright Gold with a thin white head. Cereal aroma, like weetabix. Nice heather honey and grassy herbal flavours. Slick and creamy mouthfeel. Just when you’re getting bored with bog standard around-4%-blond ales, one comes along that reminds you what you liked about the in them first place. Bitter finish is a bonus. A little more alcohol wouldn’t hurt though.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle. A pale yellow gold ale, this has quite a coarse grainy and slightly yeasty feel to it. The finish is a bit better with a decent hop bite. Ok.
Rerate, GBBF 2013. Forgot I’d had this rather average beer before. Less grainy/yeasty this time, maybe because on cask, but still a bit dull.
