Golden Ale. Hoppy and uncompromisingly bitter with complex fruit flavours from the blending of a modern English hop, First Gold, with the outrageously fruity American hop, Cascade. A hopheads’ beer... with balance. A real beer drinkers beer.

Cask. Straw yellow, solid white head. Fruits, bread, cereal smell. Taste: light fruits, biscuits, cereal. More of a body and less bland than the Windemere. Excellent blonde.

Cask at CBC, Clerkenwell on 21st July 2017. Clear amber with off-white fully lacing foam. Leafy hop aroma with pungent yeasts and sweet malts. Biscuit malt and grassy hoppiness in-mouth. A bittersweet finish. Light bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Cask pint in the Auctioneer, Blackpool on 8th Sep 2016. Guess it’s colour, correct it’s golden with a white head. Hop centric with a mild citrus leaning in both the nose and taste. OK, but I prefered the bottled version according to my notes and scoring..
