Cask (Ribs of Beef, Norwich) (6:3:6+:4:13=3.2+)
Pleasant honey-ish pale grainy aroma. Rich gold, small loose head. Pleasant malty and husky taste. A nice dry bitter finish, quite drying. Quenches the thirst, but so bitter that it leaves you wanting another sip. And that’s how a beer should be. To Wolfe - cheers! RIP.

Darkish gold, loose bubbly white head; taste is succulent lemon and lime, slightly sweet, some pear drop character; quite an aggressive bitterness which suits it; dry finish; very good stuff for the abv.

Dobre ale sklaniajace sie ku sredniemu piwu. Srednoi-niewielka piana, ale mimo to trwala. Lekko zamglony zlocisty kolor tego Blond Ale. Cytrusowosc chmielu dosc intensywnie wyczuwalna w nozdrzach, ale i w smaku takze dominowaly te wrazenia. Delikatne i lekkie piwo. Bardzo przyjemnie i zarazem pijalne.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A potent hoppy aroma, grapefruit and lemon citrus fruit elements and a hint of biscuity malt. Dry mouthfeel. A dry biscuity malt taste to start then a sour hop flavour of citrus fruits, making the overall flavour a little like lemon sherbet! The finish is dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops reign over this Golden Ale building a leafy and fruity hop finish to balance out silky honeyed cereals.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the shiny deep golden.
-The nose was not as revealing as the flavour profile.
-The mouthfeel is conducive to large gulps.
-This is characterful enough to keep you interested throughout the pint and restrained enough to make you ask for a second one. Great job.
