Geeves Brewery Gunwale Dance (4.2%)

Gunwale DanceHere’s another winner from Geeves.
This time it’s a Golden Ale that has a fresh outdoors-in-a-field aroma, all straw bales, long grass and a floral citrus.
The malts give a really nice light biscuit base with burned sugar edges, a little honey and a dry woodiness which is not unlike chewing the end of your pencil in Maths class.
The hops are sharp and bitter, packed with resinous sapling wood, apple cores and that flavour that only comes from biting into a lemon pip.
If you don’t know what I mean then try it, it’s bitter, almost sour, tongue drying but strangely attractive, and it leads to a finish that’s a long honey sweetness over a sharp dry bitterness.
Very good indeed.
