Seducive. Full flavour, well balanced malt and hops. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Much more to this than most British golden ales.

Winner of the golden ale category at GBBF 08. Draught. Dark golden with bright clarity. Missing head. Aroma with lemon hints. Fruity and toasted malt profile in taste. Very smooth with floral-hops coming through in the mouth. Relatively anonymous (tutored tasting with Roger Protz, 06.08.2008).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a huge rocky white head and a massive perfumy floral hop aroma. Those Celelia aroma hops definitely work! The flavour is similar to the aroma - floral and fruity - and there’s a good long bitter finish. Very refreshing and highly drinkable, this is a great summer beer. I was impressed!
