4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
This crisp and aromatic Golden Ale refreshes with spicy and citrusy hops laid upon well polished straw-like pale malts.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear golden.
-Carbonation is not trying to emulate a cask. In this case, it’s perfectly fine since the bubbly feel enhances the crispness. This drinks like an Anglo interpretation of a German Pils.
-This is gorgeous for our summer heat and humidity.
-Love the nose on this one. Delicate but there’s lots going on.
-Ultimately, this is not the most memorable Golden Ale on the world scale. However, it’s so intricate, polished and quenching that I cannot deem it less than world-class.

500 ml bottle, with clear golden pour, biscuit & caramel malt backbone, with juicy pithy citrus hop character. Really well balanced. Not a hop bomb, but a really well made ale.
