3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from my Dad for Christmas. Headless, amber ale with a mild, sweetish, ginger and apple hops aroma. Tangy bitter taste, hoppy, dry but balanced enough to make this very drinkable. Lacking much finish - perhaps too abrupt. Good for lunchtime.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear 500ml bottle best before April 2013: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 11th June 2012. As the name suggests, this is a golden/amber coloured beer, the head I produced was full at first but the off-white bubbles soon became a wisp and collar.
The nose and taste were a well balanced mix of hops and malts: nothing strong or overpowering, just a pleasant flavour and feel to the brew. Easy to drink, semi-sweet mouthfeel with only a mild bitterness: alcohol content that is well hidden and the 4.5% suits it nicely.
