2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hints of hops. The color is a hazy yellow and it has a small white head. The flavor is of citrus and some weird hop, that I can’t recognize. The end is very dry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled cask conditioned. Golden coloured. Slightly citrusy aromatic aroma. Medium bodied. Dry and lively,. This ale feels very fresh and quaffable and has a lingering bitterness. Golden ales is by far not my favourite style, but this one is really something extra.
