Bottled. This beer has been fine filtered prior to bottling.
NOTE: The cask version (at 3.9%) has a separate listing.
Named after a fishing fly used for luring trout, this Blonde Ale has a refreshing palate due to the use of high quality pale ale malt. By blending different hops at various stages of the brewing process Andwellís have produced a beautiful beer with a citrus aroma and balanced bitterness.

500ml bottle at Tylney Hall, nr Hook. Clear orange, lightly sparkling, small white head. The overall impression is more of a lager than a golden ale - Iím surprised to see that this is top-fermented. Itís malty with a touch of metal.

DuffMan (7343) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Yellow body, slightly hazy, average white head. Crackery malts, dry bitter finish. Unexciting, dull.

500ml brown bottle. Golden pour with a small creamy white cap. A few spots of lace here and there but not much lacing. Light nose with faint citrus. Taste is rather light, mild grainy malts, touch of citrus at the end. Aftertaste has a slight citrus note and some grain. Overall quite a light brew that actually feels a bit washed out and flat on the tongue.

Bright gold with a pure white head. The nose is mild and lightly grassy with light citrus hops and malty sweetness. Mild blonde hoppiness with a hint of grass and lemon. Very basic beer.

500ml bottle pours a bright golden color with a finger of white head that leaves spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some citrus and grains. Taste is a grassy and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruit and malty sweetness. A decent blonde ale, but nothing special.

Certainly looks the part, sparkling gold and very crystal clear. Not sure about the bottleís claim to using European & American aroma hops, as itís a bit lacking in that department. Taste-wise, it puts me in mind of continental lagers, but without the harshness that these can bring. As others have mentioned, lime citrus and biscuit characteristics are apparent, a touch sulphury in the finish. Sessionable.

berkshirejohn (4905) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
50cl bottle bought in Hartney Wintney. Hazy straw with a billowing white head; weisbier style yeasty aroma; similar flavour with a hint of banana; the finish is dry and lightly spicy. More a Weisbier than a Golden Ale, but very drinkable nonetheless.

Yellow with a small white head. Aroma of apple peel, dusty grain and grass. Sweet malty flavour with grassy hops and a decent bitterness

Bottle 500ml.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, hay notes, light to moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090808]
