Hawkshead have brewed the most perfect looking golden ale in Lakeland Gold. It's a deep golden colour with a small but loose thin head that does leave a bit of lacing, even though there's not much of it. It requires a careful pour as there is a bit of sediment in the bottle and I like to keep my beer as clear as I can.
Oh it smells so good with an aroma of hops, malt, some fruitiness and a slight floral hint. It tastes pretty good too with a smooth, sublime taste of toffee and malt followed by an ever so slight lemon citrus bitter aftertaste.
It's perfectly carbonated to give a hint of fizz without too much gas and it has a good medium body, giving it a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel.
Lakeland Gold is a delicious golden ale with a lovely bitter finish and Ale Be Seeing You again!
Brewed by Hawkshead Brewery, Cumbria
