What a floral beer this is, both in aroma and flavour.
In fact the the strength of the flower bouquet as I poured this beer stopped me in my tracks.
There’s a really good malt body here, with lots of toffee and some crumbly biscuits, but this is all about hops and all about what a Golden Ale can be.
The amped up alcohol adds a good warmth and the hops – a mix of New Zealand and US – give you juicy fruit sweeties, lime and kiwi, marmalade, passion flowers and Parma Violet all wrapped up in grapefruit zest and lots and lots of garden flowers.
What a shame that this is only a 330ml bottle as I’d love to drink this by the pint.
