Craft beer advent calendar 17: Holden’s Golden Pale Ale

This entry is part 17 of 24 in the series Craft Beer Advent Calendar

Another day where I’m doing two in one night to catch up, and another offering from Holden’s today, and this one is a pale ale. Immediately it looks as it should, being rather pale in the glass. In fact, it’s so pale that I wonder whether it will taste of much – it has not much body to it. And the aroma is very, very faint – there really doesn’t seem to be anything to this beer (it’s 3.9%).

On tasting it has something really unusual that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe it’s…caramel? It has a sugary feel to it that you get from sweets. But there really isn’t much to this beer. It would be fine for an opener at a pub, but I wouldn’t want to have more than one. 6 out of 10.
