Csk. With a pump clip like this, you’d expect a beer with balls, but no. A very soft ale, rather thin, a little bitterness in the finish. The English golden ales will never be my favourites.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden with a small but lasting white head leaving some lace. Citrus aroma, some elderflower, hint of toffee. Sweet malty flavour that lacks some personality, says the guy who is not a fan of floral golden ales...
