INSTAGRAM: #morlandbrewery , will have to do
From very early on one thought kept coming into my mind. It was a thought that made me think… can I really say this in my review of OGH?
But yet the thought kept coming.
So as I settle down to write I’m now at the horrible moment of whether I come out with it or not….
There, I said it, though maybe regret it a little now.
For those of you that don’t know what a PB is, it’s where you take a bottle and….. errrr you know what it is don’t you.
In all seriousness I’ve never really been a fan of the look of Golden Ale’s in a clear bottle. Even if the label is great (see our Spitfire Gold picture) it still kills the over all look of the packaging dead.
Now what Morland seem to have done is take what is already an awful looking clear bottle of ale and stick a label on it that possess a huge yellow outline.
Just a massive error in my opinion as it really cheapens what is actually a pretty decent beer to drink… let’s get on to that shall we.
OGH is crisp and refreshing, yes it is lacking a little depth but you can forgive it for that because it is a real joy to drink both in taste and texture. It is all quite subtle but the taste is tropical and fruity and the texture is lovely and smooth with a hint of the galaxy hops coming in at the end.
A good, easy drinking beer this. Disaster packaging aside, I’m a fan.
