3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Clean, fresh aroma of straw-like notes, vine tomatoes and grapefruit.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a delicate white head. Lively carbonation. Slight lacing on the glass.
Taste: Light, fruity flavours. Not much in the way of malt character, but it’s very hoppy and easy drinking. Good bitterness.
Palate: Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Nice carbonation fizz.
Overall: A very hoppy golden ale - light moreish and refreshing. This is the second beer I’ve had from this brewery and they’ve both been pretty good. Will keep an eye out for their other beers.
