3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting golden ale, if somewhat on the dark side of the genre. Although there is citrus, the most noticeable trait is a hint of sourness reminiscent of Rodenbach and I guess this was deliberate, on the other hand the slight haziness probably wasn’t. All in all, a tasty and enjoyable beer. I followed it down with a pint of a rather more standard golden ale which by comparison tasted of very little.
