Brains British Summer

This was one of my favourite beers from last year,only tried it at the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival and was glad to see it at the Festival again this year. Have now found it ina Cardiff pub so can enjoy a pint or two in the Cottage ph in St Mary Street.
Colour: Gold, not deep gold or light gold but brilliant gold as in freshly pressed gold leaf on a velum manuscript.
Aroma: hops, its brewed with a Styrian Golding offshoot and there is also a biscuity sweetness to it.
Taste: smooth, sweet with an increasing bitterness towards the finish. Reminiscent of a Czech lager.
An excellent beer from Brains, a pity its not brewed throughout the year!
