A superb mix of Maris Otter pale, Munich and Carapils malts along with East Kent Goldings, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops. By combining Maris Otter, the best British ale malt, with malts normally used in the finest continental lagers gives a beer with good body, caramelised undertones and a distinct gold colour. This fine recipe gives a beer that will appeal to ale drinkers and lager drinkers alike.

guzgorog (721) - FRANCE - MAR 30, 2015
Blonde bien dorée, petite mousse et bulles nombreuses au versage, pour laisser rapidement place à une bière plate à l’anglaise. Nez malté, caramel, foin, herbes. Bouche également très maltée, biscuit. Faible amertume, faible carbo, peu de longueur. Bière un peu trop fade ...

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Gold with white head. This was a fairly sweetish, light, fruity Golden Ale, some ripe apricot jam some saccharin on the tongue tip. Easy, smooth. It’s fine.
