Marstonlad (929) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Bottle, as a gift. Pours fairly clear golden with a little white head. The aroma displays grainy maltiness, citrusy fruitiness and a touch of grassy hoppiness. Taste is dryish, light bitter, malty and fruity; hoppiness is very subtle, even mild. Flavours of hay and lemon. The palate is light bodied, smooth and average in carbonation. Mild flavours, light bodied, nearly watery palate. Decent session ale.

imdownthepub (14974) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer festival ’17. Pale gold with white head. There is a grainy, sweet, cereal character to this from the off, fairly thin on the palate, there is a lemon hint in the flavour. It’s okay.

A fresh tasting Cumbrian golden ale, just enough hop influence to make it interesting, these beers are designed to be glugged after a long walk, pondering your next wainwright!
