Cask, Orange Tree, Chelmsford.
Hops sourced from the USA? Really? They didn’t use many. Incredibly bright on appearance. Golden lacing. Bog-standard golden ale stuff. Really incredibly grassy on aroma and taste. Off-flavour. Not a clean and well-made hoppy golden ale at all. Lacking of US hops. HELLO, HOPS??

Cask from the White Lion, Disley, Cheshire, £3.10/pint.
Pours golden amber with thick, creamy white head. Loads of fruit in the aroma, and the flavour, mainly grapefruit, orange and lychee. Not surprised to learn there’s Amarillo hops in there. Well balanced, smooth finish. Lovely.
