Somerland Gold is another regular medal winner. If you like your beers golden, hoppy and refreshing then this is for you, but be careful - it goes down quickly for 5%. Pale and Wheat malts are jostling for your attention with Challenger and Northern Brewer hops. At this strength our English yeast leaves hints of honey.

Hazy gold beer. Slightly soft palate. Fairly bitter hops immediately make their presence known. Mild malt and then a little sweet pineapple peeping through the bitter hops. Finishes dry and bitter. Too much bitterness and not enough fruit from the hops.
