500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear golden orange with moderate-sized near white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy hops with gentle tropical fruit. Flavour has notes of flowers, light grapefruit and other tropical fruits and grass. Modest bitterness in finish. Full of flavour but easy-drinking. Nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly subdued carbonation, pure colden colour with thin white head. Peachy aroma, with hints of grassy hops, white grape, mandarin, some wild flowers and a little malt sweetness. Lovely aroma but I just whish it was bolder. Thinner than most IPA/pale ales (why its listed as a Golden I have no idea) but this aids it in being more sessionable and refreshing. Fruity flavour with some grassy and resinous hops, which leads to a big and bold yet flavoursome bitterness.

Bottle 4.8@angle. Golden coppery, filtered. Nice grapefruity hoppy nose with scottish- like nutty caramel. Lightish body, bitter dry. Earthy hops, english caramel. Quite good, pretty close to my ideal english strong bitter: Has the english earthy hops, nutty caramel, but still slightly grapefruity, uplifting.
