COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles. Cask: Special - 2011 JDW Autumn Beer Festival.
"English Halcyon malts are used together with lager malts. Golding hops provide the bitterness and aroma. The result is a highly distinctive light, golden ale similar in character to a full bodied Czech lager."

500ml btl 4.7abv, b@Eurospar - also observed@Eide (Meny distribution). Modest pearl head, some curtain, golden body, not totally clear. Scents of hops, sweet malts, bread, yeast, faint hint of grapefruit, Chocolate malts in the taste, fruity fresh too, nice hops building up under it. Smooth and slightly grainy to palate. Well bodied. Nice gentle bitter ending with breads, dark malts and the final part of hops. I feel overall that this is a quality ale.

500ml bottle. 21-06-2015.
BBD: 24-09-2015.
In short: bready golden ale.
Pours quite clear dark golden with nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, roasty, bready nose. Light body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is some sweet, roasty, biscuits, some nuts. Quite smooth and some hidden complexity. Enjoyable.

jamaty (1240) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Ambar clara, turbia. Escasa espuma. Aroma escaso, especiado. Inicialmente seca y amarga, evolucionando hacia un mayor dulzor, de miel, y un ligero recuerdo frutal.

MarkoNm (1500) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a small(ish) white head. malty aroma with some caramel notes and herbal hops present too. Taste starts malty with grassy/herbal body and moderate bitterness. Not a bad one, but nothing special.
