2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted this Golden Ale in the Three Judges, Glasgow in September 2006. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hops present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a light digestive biscuit flavour with citric fruit evident. Strong dusty hop resins give a sharp astringency to the increasingly bitter aftertaste. Finish is tart and very dry with grapefruit peel present. Not my favourite from the Hambleton portfolio.
