Bottle. Up to the usual high standard of this brewery. Bronze with a small head. Complex hoppiness shows that you don’t have to have a high alcohol level to produce a decent flavour .Worth checking out.

Arbor rarely disappoints and this is no exception. This little beaut delivers everything it promises, an excellent hoppy session pale. Slight clean hoppy nose followed up with a decent complexity of flavour and a good amount of bitterness. A very accomplished pale ale

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy golden ale with light tropical fruit flavours, toffee and citrus notes with a slight bitter pine finish. Very good for a low ABV beer.

500ml bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. A lovely citrusy session ale from Arbor here. Freckled white head with a hazy orange body that gives a tantalising glimpse of the mandarin-lined mouthful to come. Lime & mint come through from time to time, and this citrus punch propels the taste past the normal 3.8%-ers. Another bottle? Why not.

Taste: Vine tomatoes, lime and pale malt. Fresh green hops. Light bitterness.
Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Amazing mouthfeel for such a low ABV beer. One of the best sub 4.0% beers I’ve tried.

500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a small head. Aroma is lime and mandarin jelly. Taste has mandarins to start with a lime finish. Bish has it right, just a bit of soap, too.

Yep, a rather good golden, many thanks to Arbor. It’s just on the edge of being the right side of soapy which just kinda tantilises you into thinking that it might not be good. But it is. Top golden.

Cask at the Old Fountain - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Nice dry citrus nose punctuated with tangerine and hay. Light sweet flavor, very well balanced, more tangerine, some orange, mild hay and general pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Superb balance to finish, a bit more pale malt sweetness, mellow citrus, tangerine. This is a great session golden ale.
