A top quality blonde beer made using only Marris Otter pale malt to give a light and refreshing clean taste. Moderately hopped with Challenger and delicate New Zealand Hallertau hops. This is the perfect easy drinking beer for hot summer days!

Bottle from Dobbies Garden Centre Newcastle. Pours light golden colour. Flavours of fruit but a little bland. Refreshing if a bit boring

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours perfectly clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma is of sweet malts and hops, not much else. OK taste. Doesn’t last long. A little watery and tastes too much like a generic lager for me... Unfortunatrly wouldn’t have again because of this.

gegwilson (3033) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Very pale golden ale with thin white head. A bit of a hoppy tang to the finish, but otherwise a pretty bland effort. Refreshing all the same and probably nice on a summer’s day.

Scopey (11993) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle at Langley Castle. It pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is clean, doughy, honey, leaf and a touch of metal. The taste is clean, crisp, citrus, mild bitterness, dough, honey and grass with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good clean, crisp golden ale. Decent.
