I thought the Golden Promise was a solid beer. It poured a copper clear with white head that left a nice lace. The scent was slightly bitter with hints of citrus. The taste was balanced for an English Style IPA sweet malt followed by a bitter finish. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this was good and I would have it again.

Snifter.

Dark amber with a finger of beige froth. The head fades in half a minute and lacing is scattered. Good clarity.

The nose is a pleasant blend of toasty and caramel malt notes. Hops impart floral earthy aromatics. There's a light fruitiness that I attribute to the yeast: date and plum.

Rich bread and caramel malt flavor with an upper low to lower moderate bitterness that balances out the sweetness. Plum blends with date and earth. There's a dash of alcohol in the drying malty finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and sticky.
