Thanks to Aurelia Fish for this swap sample!
This was a good Golden Monkey. Mild, a tad smoky, middling malty with an average to thick body.
I’ll have to try this next to Harney & Sons when I get another sample from there to see which one I prefer. It was good and I enjoyed it but even after reading my tasting note for the H&S I can’t remember what prompted me to rate that one so highly.
