COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

Keg at Black Isle bar Inverness. Pours clear Amber with small white head. Aroma dominated by fresh citrus. Taste is nicely citrus, grapefruit and lime. Good malt sweetness to balance the hops. Slick mouthfeel with good fullness from carbonation. Overall a decent IPA.

On cask in Edinburgh. Strong flavor and strong alcohol for the style. There’s a pretty substantial malt sweetness, which is nice but it also is pretty strong at cask temperature. Solid but a bit malty.

Bottle from Planet Organic. Orange gold colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel and honey. Taste has some honey sweetness and some notes of hay and grass. Some hop flavour at the finish. A liitle bland, but some quite nice subtle flavours and a good balance and mouthfeel.

330 ml bottle bought at Food Wise in Shek Wui Hui, Sheung Shui.

Looks: Clear amber golden colour; Less than one quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing and active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Quite fragrant Ale malt, with grapefruits flesh and peels, light tropical fruits, honey, floral, caramel, sugar, biscuits, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet Ale malt, with strong caramel, strong floral, orange, citrus peels, strong molasses, earth, dry biscuits, lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good Ale maltyness in a slightly thinned but smooth background. Strong astringent grassy hops up front with lingering orange and grapefruits, followed by strong caramel and floral. Nice strong sweetness. Earthy biscuity with lemon to round. Nice!

Hoppiness: Grapefruit flesh and peels, tropical fruits, floral, lemon and light grass in nose. Strong floral, orange, citrus peels, earth, lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, strong astringent bitter sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Citrusy and strong bitter to mouth. Comments: This is a solid Golden Ale with rich maltyness, fair dry-hopped fruity aroma, good caramel taste with a big citrusy hoppiness which balanced the sweetness nicely. A pretty good Summer thirst quencher!

Golden Eye var ett passande namn, då utseendet på ölen tilltalade mig men sin gyllene färg. Lite kort i doft dock. En öl jag kommer att dricka igen.
