Cask, JDW, Hamilton Hall, 20/2/2016.
White lacing. Golden appearance. Straw, hey and spruce and garden dew on aroma. Taste is hey, straw, herbs, mint tea like texture and oranges. An odd but well made and definitely underhopped golden ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It seems like buses, good beers for the Friday after work session come along in two’s. Having recently enjoyed Naylors 5% Snowstorm, this one kept me and Mai in the Tilley Stone Friday gone. Bright gold, white head grapefruit aroma, lovely tropical and grapefruit flavours, Pleasing floral hops. Lovely bitter-sweet balance, and a kind of perfect storm of the best elements of a blond, a quality pilsner, and a golden Belgian ale. Of the four hand pulls on in the pub, I would say a good 70% of quaffers were enjoying this. Salopian yet to put a foot wrong for me.
