3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Waitrose.
Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - grassy and biscuity.
Taste - a nice blend of citrus, grass and dry biscuits again.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - I would consider this a Bitter. In fact, some of the complexity in it, makes me think of Premium Bitter even if the ABV doesnít merit it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from the cask at the John Bairdís Yorkshire Beer Festival. Golden colour with a whitish head. Very mild aromas of marmalade and biscuit malts. Mildly citrus flavours. This sample is very slightly sour - just on the turn - so probably not fair to judge it. It seems a little thin, without the fresh, zesty flavours that I would expect from a Golden Ale.
