Iolani Gold (4.5%)

Iolani GoldThis is a pretty smart little Golden Ale, though I’m not sure if Iolani is the brewery or the brand or the beer’s name or what.
I’ll Google it later*.
Pouring an unsurprising gold, the smell is apples and pears on a bed of straw.
There’s a particularly nice malt here that’s full of sticky honey, white pepper, burned sugar syrup and a handful of sultanas.
The hops are crisp and bright, as green apple skins, grass clippings and a splash of lemon lead you into a good dry bitter and lingering finish.

*I Googled and am still not 100% positive whether or not Iolani is the brewery or just a brand name for The Drink Thing Ltd.
