3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tesco.
Appearance Straw colout, bit hazy, 1 finger white frothy head, little lacing.
Aroma Fairly strong aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, resin, some grassy hops, floral notes, bit zesty, hint of orange, fresh aroma, quite complex.
Taste Emphasis on citrus hops, some resin and grass, grapefruit, sweet light malt (not much), acidic and bitter.
Palate Soft carb, quite dry and puckering, fairly strong citrus finish, cleans quite well, slight oily, medium to thin body.
Overall Well made citrus golden ale, good taste for 4.4%, perhaps a bit over dry and needs some more malt. Not a hop bomb like a west-coast American IPA.
