500ml bottle into a nonic.

Pours a slightly hazy light copper-ish gold with a very thin white head. Just the smallest bit of lacing with a bit of soapy head retention.

Aroma of toffee and pear with a hefty note of grass and flowers. Almost a bit of a tartness in the aroma.

The flavor is dark bread, caramel, and some toffee and toast. More grass and floral notes along with the same tartness I picked up in the aroma. Fairly high and sharp bitterness for this style. The beer finishes clean, however, with a thin and watery mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a pretty good English Bitter but it also doesn't have much to make it stand out. I do enjoy the bitterness which I feel is a little more than in other examples of this style.

English golden ale in 0.5l bottle.
Pours clear orange-golden beer with bubbly off-white head. Smell is not very intense, more hoppy, than malty. Taste is semisweet with zesty hop note, due to last hopping with Styrian Goldings. They promised twist of lemon on a label, it actually is not so strong, but pleasant. Commonly low carbonation, excellent summer beer.

Golden pour, very thin white head fades fast to a thin lace. Lasting bubble strings.
Lots of citrus fruit in the smell, mainly lemon, some oranges too. Pale English malts and a mild floral presence.
Taste follows the nose, zesty citrus with a extra aromatic tangerine and grapefruit. Bready, slightly biscuity malts. Finishes with bitter citrus peel and mild perfummey floral hops.
Medium body, carbonation, has an appealing drinkable quality.
Really refreshing, they need to make 1l bottles of this.
