Golden ale in 0,5l bottle.
Pours pale golden beer with compact 1-finger white head. Williams bros. beer is known for its very aromatic beers. This one smells good - resin, grapefruit, elderflowers, herbal hops. Flavour is also floral with excellent bitter finish. Good carbonation, very refreshing beer.

From bottle with freshness date five months away: bottle has abv as 4.3% rather than the 5% shown here. Straw to gold colour with slightly greenish hue, very slightly cloudy with a decent white head. It has a hoppy nose, piney but slightly doughy. This has a tart, almost stewed rhubarb type flavour (not dissimilar to the same brewer's Prodigal Sun) combined with an increasingly apparent metallic flavour after a rather buttery start.

Beer bottle (50 cl.) purchased from 20/20 La Chapelle/Erdre, and tasted in 2014.

Appearance : golden color with white foamy head.
Smell : malty and fruity aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : herbal and grassy flavors, leading to a lightly bitter finish.
Overall : an average beer in the style blond Ale.
