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. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white foamy head that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is a bunch of citrus, some mild nectar as well as mild sweetish malts. Flavour is quite much the same with some floral and mildly herbal notes. Mild zestyness as well as some mild fruityness in the finish. A quite balanced golden ale.

Theydon_Bois (17251) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Cask at the Barrels, Hereford, 17/10/13. Clear golden with a thin off white covering. Good lacing ensues. Nose carries light chemical notes, grass, fruits. Taste comprises orange, citric fruit, toasted malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the finish. Ok GB, the chemical notes lower the score for this one a few notches. This was one of 5 Wye Valley cask ales I had at the Barrels this evening and there were no off notes on any of the others.
