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.
On cask at The Black Friar, London.

Bottle. Umm, me likey! Good old fashioned musty dry hay-barn aroma. Soft mouth feel. Great leafy hop with definite peperyness on the finish. Nice hints of tropical fruit. Top notch beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a straw yellow gold with a very very slight haze. Thin white, but steady head. Nose is lemony and grassy with a hint of lime. Taste is slightly tart, but quite light on taste overall. There’s something a bit "paracetamol" about it. There’s a nice pleasant bitter finish, without being overpowering. Nice enough.
