Nose
Delicate pale malt topped with light, citrus hop notes that become more and more pronounced, bringing bitter orange and spicy blackcurrant notes.
Palate
Tasty, with a moreish, savoury bitterness enhanced by a fresh, clean, citrus, peppery hop character, with gentle lemon and blackcurrants.
Finish
Bitter, lipsmackingly hoppy, tangy and dry.
Comment
A good value, full-flavoured yet nicely balanced golden ale that includes American Willamette hops.
