We finally have weather decent enough to get into the back garden and so out I went to get on with all the jobs that needed doing.
And I must say that after a morning of painting fences, Radio 4 mumbling in the background, this is absolutely the right beer.
Piper’s Gold is a “Bitter Golden Pale Ale” that sits in my glass the colour of honey, its foamy head all fluffy and appealing.
This is a superb session ale, its delicate aroma full of fresh lemon juice and straw, crisp and clean and inviting.
The malts here are shortcake and pear juice with just a touch of caramel and honey, while the hops are sharp citrus, lots of lemon rind and grapefruit flesh, some mown grass and a soft floral dryness that makes for a crisp and very refreshing finish.
