4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Derby Beer Festival. This golden ale was one of the highlights of the festival for me. The aroma is very fruity, with hints of strawberry, mango and melon. The flavour also has tropical fruit as well as hops on the finish. This is an enjoyable, refreshing beer, but if it’s an old ale I’ll eat my hat.

Some features very strong, I doubt if it is an old Ale at all, but it has a lot of it. Sweet in flavour, strong and nice.
