COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy yellowish orange with a smallm, creamy, white head. Okay duration. Soft malty aroma, some biscuits and good, sweet flowery hoppiness. A little bit of exotic fruits. Highish carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is quite fruity, grassy, grapefruity hops and flowers. Light dryness, some hay and oranges. A bit Saison-ish, actually.
