Bottle conditioned, Seasonal;
Sunshiny is brewed to quench a thirst. The ale is golden in colour and starts off with a bitter sweet taste instilled by the combination of honey and hops. The hops used in the brew contribute to the citrus flavour and the delicate orange background.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a light, white foam head. Dry hay nose, some doughy malts. Medium sweet flavor, more hay and dough, some white bread and sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, faint bitter straw. It’s OK. Nothing special, but easy drinking.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. Note - this was drink right after a rather peculiar Kvass, so I was probably still in a bad mood. The pour’s light gold, no head. Ugly. The nose is peas, sugar, some angel food cake. The taste is weak vegetable water, light sugar. Overall, a sad effort.

sm89walt (1947) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. A toasted malt, grain & citric lemon dominated profile. An OK sweet/sour balance going on. Some buttery, caramel sweetness comes through on occasions. Light to medium body, medium carbonation finishing with a short to medium length, gently hoppy finish. A simple, rounded golden ale; quite harmless but has an easygoing drinkability to it.
