3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Claret. It pours golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is apricot jam, stewed fruit, dry grass and biscuit. The taste is apricot, peach, bitter grapefruit, honey, grass and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Maybe not super-hoppy but a decent golden ale nonetheless.
