Floral type of ale. Distinctive floral aroma . But not to much .Very easy drinking. Had this one in a bar in Liverpool. Will not buy it again.

Don’t usually go for floral type ales, but this is now an exception. Distinctive floral aroma and taste but not too pungent. Very easy drinking.

Cask at the Bloxwich Showman Wetherspoons. Glorious clear golden beer with a nice semi creamy white head, hoppy, citrus fruit, refreshing, goes down very well. One of my favourite gold beers.

imdownthepub (11145) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Light, quite thinnish beer, kept over cold in this Spoons unfortunately, little left to revive. Some perfumed hop perhaps, a touch hay maybe, some toffee sweetness. It’s ok if a little bland.

Cask at JDW Bishop Vesey; hazy amber pour with big foam white head, wispy floral hop aroma, slight hop taste with a malty background and a caramel edge.

Lovely perfume and fruity hop aroma. Taste threatens to overwhelm but doesn’t, leading to a balanced finish. An honest golden beer, full-flavoured yet reserved.

harrisoni (14694) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2013. Gold thick white head. Nettle hoppy. Really quite hoppy some bitterness on the finish. Quite arresting and I wasn’t keen to start with but it grew on me.

niquillis (1511) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
On cask at White Star, Stoke. Pours amber, with little head. A bit too bready, not as per it’s description. Yet another inoffensive and boring ale.
