Golly that’s pale. Effectively, it does what it says on the label - it’s golden. Has coarse bubbles and a very temporary head. Aromas of English hops and pale malts. Light and mild on the palate with gentle reminders of bitterness as it sits. Fairly sessionable but not especially remarkable.

500ml bottle. Clear gold, moderate head and lacing. Aroma is light malt and light earthy English hops. Taste is about the same. Nothing about this was really ground breaking, but it was a really enjoyable example from a usually boring or bland style. It actually worked and I was pleasantly surprised.

500 mL bottle. Looks like apple juice. A tiny bit of head. Odd aroma: grape juice, apple juice, and medicine. The flavour is acceptable, but far less interesting. Quite estery. Lowish carbonation.
