The ultimate catch, a refreshing golden pale ale with a fruity bitterness & lingering aftertaste. Certainly a beer to help create those one that got away stories!
Brewed with Wold grown malts and hopped with the fruity Cascade and Goldings hops.

A nice crisp light ale. Very refreshing with just the right amount of amber malts to balance the good dose of Cascade hops. Light bodied, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (2290) - Rome, ITALY - APR 9, 2017
Cask @Le Bon Bock (Rome). Dorata carica, abbastanza limpida, schiuma media persistente. Al naso sentori fruttati, di mela grattuggiata, uva bianca, erba tagliata, biscotto. In bocca è morbidissima, all’inglese, bilanciata, freschissima, fantastica. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Adoro queste birre!

Clear golden, creamy white head. Light and fruity in taste and aroma. Bit watery, touch of hop, not great. A bit cooler and it’d have been spot on for a sunny day.

Bottle. Pale Yellowy Golden in colour. Small white head. Fruity; citrus grapefruit, lemon in the finish. Hoppy; light grassy hops. Malty; toasty malts, caramel, buttery notes. Slightly earthy. Sweet-bitter citrus fruity malty throughout. Quite dry. Increasingly lemon and slightly salty into the finish. OK. Easy drinking. (2015-08-27)

GoufCustom (1915) - HONG KONG - NOV 26, 2016

500 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Sha Tin.

Clear golden colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing and active slow carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of Ale malt, with cream soda, caramel, roasted nuts, floral, light molasses, bread and faint lemon; Near zero sweet taste of light Ale malt, with nuts, toasted grains, light yellow fruits, light red fruits, light floral, molasses notes, bread, lemon, fair to mid bitter hops and grass; Light body. Watery and slick palate; Mouth feel is light Ale maltymess in a watery background. Strong nutty and toasty taste permeate, with caramel and fair bits of red and yellow fruits. Faint sweetness, Dry bready with lemon to round. Decent… Hoppiness is floral and thin lemon in nose, same in taste with grass and strong lemon Bitterness is fair for a lasting, light to mid astringent nutty toasty finish; Dry after taste. Fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: Like its Bitter, this one is has pretty roasty nutty flavor. Quite enjoy its cream soda aroma anf toasty light sweet taste, but as Golden Ale it’s a bit too thin and lacking hoppy punch. Easy to drink but nothing special.
