3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle: BBE Aug 16. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 27th Sep 15. As the name suggests, this is a gold coloured beer, clean and bright bodied, the head an uneven foam covering of tight, white bubbles. Light malts and subtle hop notes in the aroma and taste, fruity feel and leaning towards sweet in nature. Mild herbal/spice flavourings in the mix as it warmed in the glass. Liked it.
