MTLawrence (10) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Pale, but golden colour; pours with a light head with large bubbles that dissipate quickly. Don’t be fooled by this: it has not got the consistency of dishwater - it has an effervescence which is refreshing and light. Taste is clean and well defined, but not unusual for this type of ale.
