Golden Ale. Hoppy and uncompromisingly bitter with complex fruit flavours from the blending of a modern English hop, First Gold, with the outrageously fruity American hop, Cascade. A hopheads’ beer... with balance. A real beer drinkers beer.

It has a gingery, dark gold, clear appearance with a nice pillowy white head that quickly forms thick lacing around the glass. The aroma is grapefruit, green apples and licorice. The taste is very strong on the cascade hops - lots of grapefruit. The Maris Otter malt has its distinct, nicely bready wholesome taste. All very reminiscent of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, really. It has a fruity wholeness typical of the residual sugars left by the English ale yeast. The taste gets slightly vegetable-y as I drink through the 0.5l, like a cask ale (it’s pleasant enough). I would happily drink this again if I ever came across it in a pub. Possibly wouldn’t search it out in a shop again.
