3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 "better than most blondes, but still a blonde. the addition of hops adds a little to the flavor level and aroma, but this one suffers in comparison to other great RR beers."

Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white swirl atop the glass.
Nose is orange, citric rind, light florals, bread dough.

Ok GB, may benefit from being cask conditioned to work the flavours out a little more.
