2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this at Esquire house, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque amber in colour with a thin white head. Short dusty hops present in the mild aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a fruity base of grapefruit and lemon zest full in the mouth. Very slight dusty hop resins detected in the quick aftertaste. Finish is dry with sweetness still present in the citric notes of lemon and grapefruit, really tart in the mouth. An ok Golden Ale and well recommended.

The scent is floral hops aromatic. Soft, a little watery, malt flavor with hints of caramel and hops. The aftertaste has a harsh hops bitterness that needs a fuller maltiness to avoid becoming too intrusive. Otherwise, a drinkable beer!
