(Bottled) . its not golden ,yet is called a golden ale on the bottle , resembling more an APA - you know customary glowing bronze SNPA lookin kinda resemblance thing , i reckon, resting in the flute . drinking this isn’t as floral or zesty as you expect either for the style . rather malty driven , caramel , mild orange notes , wood, lemon bitterness , some mango ..... but these fruits and the overall character is rather subdued . Not bad though despite my moanng through most of the rating .....
