2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yet another light coloured brew with citrus overtones that although refreshing and obviously well made, just bored the ares off me. There are so, so many like this on the market currently and I for one am fed up with them. I should have asked for a sample instead of going for a pint. 25th July 2014: Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire. Sorry you guys at Mallinsons, not my thing: but I have tried to score it objectively.

Cask. Light gold with a thick white head. Lightly hoppy nose of lemon and oranges. Taste is light citrus fruits with a sweet malt backbone. A bit bland, but decent enough.

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.

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.
