Cask. Aroma grapefruit melon and lemon rind. Pours a yellow gold with white lace. Tastes citrus and soft malts with a pleasantly refreshing tang. Another one for the summer

My Bottom Line:
This cushy Golden Ale relies on citrusy hops and their herbal bite to deliver a very pleasant pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the misty golden.
-Mineral undercurrents get more and more apparent with every sip.
-Cereals merely offer support here, but it is of the very comfortable sort.
-Citrus fruit allusions are as vast as they are alluring.
On cask at The Old Buttermarket, Canterbury.

Honey, floral hops, grain and cereal malts, light citrus fruits. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Grain and cereal malts continue, dough, citrus fruits again. OK Golden Ale, nothing too spectacular though. Cask at Urban Tap House, Cardiff.
