330ml bottle. Sweetish malt and fairly zesty, lemon hops. First impression good but not a session beer to me as it the citrus quality was sliughtly overpowering.

StueyD (1279) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
A golden amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hoppy aroma with a background hint of pale malt. Dry mouthfeel. A mild bitter hop taste, some citrus fruit and a grassiness, then a dry pale malt flavour, bringing a biscuity, woody and a slight vanilla spice. The finish is mild bitterness and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MiP (13836) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle, 5.0%. OK caramelly and sweetish aroma. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is caramelly with a mild hop bite. Has a little bread in the finish, but not too bad.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Frankly it just doesn’t make any sense. Hop is just too extreme and sherberty for the body of the beer. Adnams yeasty apple aroma, but the rest is terrible. Mind you according to Jonathan Adnams, it wasn’t made for me anyway. As he says in The Publican, “But this beer is for people who have made the decision not to drink cask beer.

bobolev (8) - RUSSIA - OCT 13, 2014 does not count
golden craft beer, full of flavour with a crisp refreshing citrus taste, wonderful orange peel aromas and crowned with a full white head from the wheat added to the brew. Brewed from a blend of East Anglian malted barley, Boadicea hops and wheat. Chilled and filtered to retain all the freshness, flavour and aromas of unpasteurised beer.

erickok (3881) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
Golden body and small head. Equal aroma, with golden biscuit malts, cracker like, soft modern but modest carbonation. Okay de enable, certainly bitter enough, but a bit underwhelming overall. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
