500ml 4% bottle from Cott. I like their goldens, but this isn’t the best, they’re a little low on hops but the base beer seems to be effective. Light and refreshing with a little bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy straw colour with lots of sediment and a small white head. Not much on the nose, a little mild citrus perhaps. Sweet nectarine flavours, light tropical fruit, a little honey, leading to a moderately bitter hoppy finish. Well balanced and very easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This pillowy Golden Ale’s pine needles and earthen bark moves into grassy resins for a very drinkable forest microcosm.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy yet shiny straw blond.
-The flavor profile is mighty refreshing, yet perhaps linear. Could use some citrusy brightness in there somewhere.
-Malts share some blades of hay.
-The mouthfeel is dryish and the carbonation fluffy.
-This is exactly the kind of beer a lot of North American brewpubs could brew but don’t, for some reason.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Juicy orange, lemon and kiwi fruit.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head. Light lacing.
Taste: Lemon, grapefruit, blood orange and pale malt. Quite sweet and juicy. Low bitterness.
Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: A succulent, fruity Pale Ale. I could happily drink this again and again. Mallinsons consistently brew superb sub 5.0% ABV beers and are quickly becoming one of my favourite breweries.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Another ale from Mallinsons that has the look of a good pilsner - pale straw with a pillow-like white head and fairly heavy carbonation; however the lemony aroma gives the game away; this time, the taste is immediately sharply bitter with a lemony tang and a slightly grainy body; then a long, dry, satisfying, finish. Another excellent golden ale.
