2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
In the unlikely event that someone brews a beer to celebrate me (as an author or otherwise) can you, yes YOU, please ensure that they brew something that gives a little more interest than this. ’Exquisitely lovely’. No it’s not. Ironically as Wainwright himself said... ’when we drink, we drink for pleasure but this brew can be drunk by you’. How appropriate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle (from Caerdydd, 1 month old). Faint floral aroma, citrusy hopps. Freshly harvested barley. Beautifull golden ale, clear pour, rather frothy head, that does not stay longer than a minute. Medium sweet, lightly bitter and slightly salty. Medium body, average ale density, soft carbonation and a pleasant bitter finnish, that opens itself after few minutes. This is not the best golden ale there is, but, probably the best one you can get as an export in eastern part of Europe.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear medium gold with a thick huge lasting frothy, and sticky and very lacy soapy lasting white head. Smells of NZ hops, toasted malt, grain and toffee. Slightly tropical elements. Medium with soft carbonation. Fruity sweet peach, malt and toasted malt with a fresh nice bitterness. The hops are a nice surpise. It balances out well and is much better than the Cask version. Great to drink and lovely golden session.

Bottle. Clear, deep golden, visible carbonation, stable white foamy layer, mild to moderate fruity and citrussy-hoppy nose, some malt detectable, as well; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; lingering citrussy-hoppy finish. An unspectacular, but very pleasant beer...

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colored pour with little to no head. Floral, hoppy aroma with a floral, dry bitter finish. This was just ok.
