Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Road, Cambridge. Dark gold, over-carbonated. Little white head sitting proudly on the top. Sweet smell of caramel/taffy, somewhat sickly if truth be told. Taste isn’t much better: sweet and malty with a misplaced spiciness. The flavour in the finish is short, but the heavy carbonation lingers on the tongue. I just don’t care for it all that much. I should say that I’m not (usually) a fan of First Gold hops, so this was never going to appeal to me. ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cambridge. Amber-orange with no head and a small carbonation. Medium bodied fruity ale with citrus orange the dominant aroma and flavour. Sad24 (208) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Drinkable but not hoppy really. A straight forward bitter really. Ok but not for me..
