22 oz bottle per into glass.

Touted as an English style summer ale, but I think it is more similar to American summer ales. Mild citrus aroma with a gentle hops aftertaste. Golden yellow to straw color thin head with little lacing. The beer is rather mild as expected for a simmer beer. Good and easy drinking with good flavor.

Cross of Gold pours with a thick white head that diminishes quickly with frothy lacing on the glass and a thin layer of foam as it warms. Pale golden in color, the nose has spicy hops and some lemon mixed in with sweet malts. Taste is sweet up front with citrus hops and a light herbal spice and sweetness in the back. A very good session beer as well as a great after mowing beer for summer. Not the best beer you ever had but a solid offering for the style.
