A deliciously refreshing golden ale made with Welsh Honey. It is dry in flavour with the sweetness of the honey emerging in the aroma leading to a pleasing bitter finish.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - sourced from Ocado. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma has some sourdough bread, pizza crust, a little freaky cut grass, citrus peel. Light sweet flavour with more pizza crust, biscuits, light bitter straw. Light bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. Finishes with more simple, biscuity pale malts, a little lemon meringue, soft bitter straw. Drinks easy. Not bad.

500ml bottle from a long ago Christmas package. BBE October 2016. Cooled and poured gently into a pint, but I still ended up with a good three inches of insanely foaming head so I’m guessing I’ve got some sediment to look forward to. Looks bright and clear for now, aroma of honey and bubblegum. Tastes like an upmarket German Pilsner flavoured with set honey (not over flavoured). Very little sediment in the rest of the bottle, but still a massive rocky foaming head. I’m finding this a bit sweet and cloying. Wouldn’t seek it out.

Cask at Swallow Falls Inn. Very slight honey smell, with a pale golden colour. Small (1cm) head, poured cloudy but settled quickly, head should last longer. Very light taste, a little weak, not getting any honey, slight sweetness, more caramel. Doesnt last long due to small flavour.

Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head leaving medium lacing behind. Aroma is floral, honey and a hint of grass and spice. Taste is a smooth combination of soft malts and honey with a hint of spice, leaving a pleasant slightly tangy finish behind. Medium body with soft carbonation, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. Seems to be harshly under-rated here though... Nice and decent honey ale!

Bottel from Morrisons. Yellowish with small head. Not taste honey at all. Some citrus notes and malt. Poor

Sweet floral notes. Amber colour thin head. Taste has caramel malts to the front. Coats the palate but no great complexity there. Cask. And slightly gassy.

Sat in the cupboard for a while because it just didn’t grab my attention and it didn’t when I opened it either. Average golden at best.

Thirstyboris (19) - Camperdown, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2015
Cloudy honey appearance with smallish head, slightly sour bitter taste. Aroma lite and lite carbinated.

Nice amber body with slight head. Sweet and malty nose. Taste of honey, citrus. Sweet but unremarkable.

Cask @The Albion, Conwy, Wales. 15-08-2014.
Honey aromas. Pours dark golden with some white head. Taste follows the nose, sweet and malty. Ends a bit dry.
