With an eyecatching colour that looks like it has just been poured out of a honey jar and an aroma of hops and honey, this ale is exactly what it says on the tin. There's only a small head but it is tight enough to hold its shape.
As with any honeyed ale, the taste is quite mellow with a very smooth consistency that makes it slip down very easily indeed. The balance of hoppiness and sweetness is perfect giving it a bitter/sweet taste with a tangy toffee aftertaste.
The head leaves nice lacing on the glass, showing that quality over quantity really pays off in some cases. It's a very pleasant golden ale, that you think doesn't have a lot of taste at first but it awakens something in your tastebuds and you get a different experience with every mouthful.
