Golden amber coloured with a fruity aroma. Quite a bitter dry finish.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Hazy orange colour, with a soft head. Peach, apricot notes, but with a veg quality (especially on the finish) that suggest it is not fully formed. Has all the right ingredients for a refreshing, full-flavoured Golden, but not fresh, clear or hoppy enough. A heavy melange.
