2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Citrus, honeyish malt and esters in the aroma. Unfortunately the taste is a bit oxidised (cardboard), light bitter vs. dull sweet, with a somewhat bready aftertaste. Nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel - light toffee, light floral fruitiness, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and toffee with light floral fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light caramel and floral fruitiness with light - some grassy/herbal hoppyness. Golden ale with caramel and toffee - your quite typical Shepherd Neame. OK, but really nothing new. Not too sweet though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale straw blond colour with thick white lasting head. Aroma is biscuity malt, fresh grass, slight citrus and wood. Taste is fresh and clean, medium dry bitter but balanced nicely with sweetness rom the malt. Not as dank and musty as some of this style of beer can be. Nice slightly oily mouth feel and not over strong carbonation. Better than I was expecting!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden beer, a head is almost medium and blond. Aroma has biscuity malts, some wood, slightly musty. Taste has malts and some biscuits, citrusfruits, wooden hoppyness that is strong enough. Medium bodied, nice carbonation, nice to drink. Overally too musty, I expect freshness and lightness from the golden ale, both of them are missing from this beer.
