Nothing gives Dorothy more pleasure than the succulent aroma of the two finest English hop varieties, Goldings and Fuggles. She selected these and Maris Otter pale malt for her Golden Ale as they’re naturally a winning combination.
The result is a crisp and zesty beer that is as comfortable served on its own as it is alongside chicken dishes, salads and pasta.

Bottled 30/08/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head. Quite a bitter beer. Grassy hops rather than anything citrus. Almost lagerish in sharpness. Struggled a bit.

Bottle from Lyde Court, Hereford. A little buttery, stodgy and just a touch metallic. Quite bland and not with a great deal of charm.
