Good Times

Rating: 3.2

Another Williams Brothers beer here, one of two I picked up along with their Seaweed Ale that I hadn’t seen before and plan to review pretty soon. This is one of my favourite Scottish breweries and one I go back to time and again so I fully expect this one to be a solid beer. I grabbed it whilst it was on offer in Aldi supermarkets last week and thought I’d drink it whilst it was fresh so here goes.

Appearance (3/5): Light and clear looking golden amber with a thin, bubbly white head that is about half a centimetre tall and has decent retention before turning to a thin lacing.
Aroma (6/10): Some background hops and floral note are present, along with some lighter malts and a vague smell of berries coming through. There is quite a sweet aroma with some citrus and possibly some lychee as well. It is quite a light smelling beer though.
Taste (7/10): Sweet malts and a definite floral note to start as well as some lighter hops and a background fruit taste. There is a moderate, earthy bitterness to the beer to round things off with too.
Palate (3/5): Smooth to taste and with a medium body and a mild citrus tang to it. There is again a light bitter finish to this one.

Overall (14/20): A nice pale ale that has some good fruity notes and a pleasant, malty base to it. The beer is quite drinkable and goes down very easily. It’s one I might be inclined to try again if I spotted it in a pub ssomewhereand it would certainly make a good session beer.
