Nose
Sweet malt. Floral/citrus hoppiness. A touch of lingering sulphur.
Palate
Juicy, sweet malt offset by tangy, floral hop resins that also bring a dash of lime.
Finish
Dry and hoppy, resonant and lingering. Limes still in evidence.
Comment
A nicely-balanced golden ale with a good hop presence. Very quaffable for its strength, but could taste a bit fresher (the sample tasted was approaching its best before date).
