3.27/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dusky, clottled orange/ dull bown (not exactly gold!), with a small head.
Aroma: unique and yeasty, ery inviting, lively mixture, though slightly sour.
Taste; oddly metallic and tinny, hops are lacking any presence, an ephemeral fruitiness emerges, but does not evolve into much beyond the initial gestation.
This one's a puzzle, for it's not gold in color, nor particularly bright in flavor.
Mouthfeel is nice and full, malt is sufficient, and the fruity flavor eventually prevails, primarily orange. Doesn't get up and do anything, though.
An interesting ale, that I'll grant, but I never felt much towards it. Huh.
Still, thanks go out to the Rastaman for providing! Jah! Ra'Stafari!

A decent English style pale ale, malty and hoppy nose, good malt middle with slight hoppy finish, i like it a lot, but have had bad bottles which swayed me away from it a bit.
