2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is (unsurprisingly) golden, with a small white head. Aromas of zesty fruit, lemons, hops, some floral notes, hints of honey. Smooth taste, not overly bitter until the end, fresh hops, slightly biscuity, citrussy finish, quite refreshing. Solid ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A deep golden beer closer to a light amber in my opinion. A highly carbonated ale which pushes the loving aromas of hops, grapefruit and gooseberry unfortunately these aromas are poorly executed in the taste. This golden beer is slightly bland with a distinct bitterness from the hops there is some subtle flavours contributed by the malts but it makes for a very drinkable beer.
