Bottle from Booths, Otley.
Pours medium brown, single finger white head, low to medium carbonation, large 2 finger white head. Floral hops, slightly yeasty on the aroma. Taste of initial light malts, then we have some fruity, floral hops, subtle, but really good. Some Lemon, nice on the whole though!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 05/05/13. An orange gold coloured beer with no head. Nice strong and hoppy. An amarillo like spicy sting in the mouth. Sticky oranges on the nose. Malts verge towards being too sweet and make it a bit too chewy bit otherwise it’s pretty decent.
