Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 181: Yenda Golden Ale

Yenda Golden Ale

Pours a clear golden colour with lots of bubbles visible in the glass. The head is white, medium in size, and bubbly.

First sip: Very mild malt, with mild citrus and a little hops up front. Extremely faint hops on the back of the tongue, which gradually builds up to not much. Mouth-feel is light to medium with a nice carbonation tingle on the tongue.

This beer is... beery. And drinkable. And nice enough, but it's boring. If today was very hot, this would be a really good dying-for-a-beer-in-summer brew. It's not a good beer for mid-winter where you want something a little heavier and tastier you can quaff in front of a fire. It's not a bad beer, but it's not a great beer. South Australia brews great beers and this isn't one of them.

How do you get a boring beer?
