Review: Golden Newt

Golden Newt from Elgood and Sons Ltd
Rating: B

Surprised to see I'm only the second reviewer of this beer on BeerAdvocate...

Appearance: Rich golden amber in color, quite clear, with a fluffy white one-finger head. Moderate retention, some lacing.

Smell: Fragrant, with floral hop notes and ale fruitiness on top of a biscuity/grainy malt backbone.

Taste: Well-balanced: bitterness is solid. Full of juicy fruit and biscuity malt notes, but finishes on a clean, dry note.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, light-medium body. Slightly objectionable aftertaste lingers.

Drinkability: Above average for the style.
