A blonde ale, low gravity, very pale; easy drinking.
Brewed with Maris Otter Pale Ale malt and a bit of wheat; loads of fruity hop flavours from a medley of traditional and modern hops; Fuggles, Styrian Goldings and Bramling Cross among others. But it is the addition of the wonderful Citra hop that really brings this beer to the fore. Not as bitter as our other pale beers.

Certainly citrusy on the nose. festival end so it looks a bit flat. Golden colour.It has a sharp edge from its medley of hops and it may relish a chilly cellar. A pleasant freshness on the palate and a lingering fullness. Solid.

BlackHaddock (5085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Jolly Crispin (Gornal) on 6th July 2013 during the Black Country Bus trip. Nice golden hue to the body: on top a thin almost white covering of small bubbles. Slight floral hop notes in the aroma with a mild malt undertone. The taste is subtle and like the nose semi-floral with a light malt presence: at 3.6% this is a fine session beer, sadly our session didnít allow anyone to stay on this. I enjoyed my half-pint though.

Black Country Beano. Cask at the Jolly Crispin. Almost clear pale gold beer. Little white head. Palate is smooth and light and a little soft. Fine carbonation. Strong floral flavours here, with elderflower peeping above the patch. Lovely mild citrus fruits. Finishes fresh. Really nicely joined up. Could drink this all day!

Cask conditioned at The Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal, W.Midlands. Gold with white head. There is a light sweetness with this, some peachy notes a touch of syrup perhaps, greenish hop note, I didnít really get the Citra hops. Ok.

Cask @ Waters Green Tavern in Macclesfield. A hoppy golden ale, but not much of a head. Its fruit flavours are more than apparent.
