Woo Hoo! My 400th!
This has a bit more colour than I expected for a golden ale, but is still very attractive, with its tight white head. It has a distinctive hoppy nose,and a slightly sweet palate, which has a pleasant fruity acidity on the finish. Perhaps not a classic golden ale but well balanced and very quaffable. Booths Keswick.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice fruity/floral hops aroma, oily and citrusy, pine. Most hoppy aroma I’ve smelled since leaving the US. Malts, too, sweet and crisp. Hazy medium amber-orange with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with light carbonation, very smooth. Starts a bit acidic with a little sweetness. Malts with taste of tea, Twizzlers, and some sugar. Acidity lessens, and more pronounced bitterness and hoppy astringency comes in to finish. The after has a medium bitter edge to it, with light malty sweetness left over. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange color, frothy head. Hoppy aroma with orange ans scotch whisky. Very hoppy flavor with licorice and a hint of alcohol (like a malt whisky). Slightly smoky. Lingering harsh bitter aftertaste. Quality beer with a very outspoken flavor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Amber colour, moderate thin white head and good condition. Some caramel and lots of fruity and pine resin hop aromas. In the mouth it starts sweet with some maltiness but a hop flavour kicks in and turns bitter into the finish. Unfortunately, bitterness dominates the end and becomes harsh.
