COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Seasonal - Spring.
"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

mjs (4498) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, 20121103) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, fruitiness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A good example of an English bitter.

jmgreenuk (4112) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle from Tesco or was it Asda :-) Poured a light golden brown with a frothy white head. A spicy, slighly floral citrus aroma with a medium bitterness that hits the palate right away, but fades quite quickly. An extremely refreshing golden summer ale which will appeal to almost anyone that drinks it and would probably match quite nicely with several food dishes too. I know it goes well with chocolate, but coming from a chocolate addict I will say that about everything!

MichaelAwesome (3650) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nose is citrus and earthy. Aroma has some hops, citrus and a bit honey. Taste is first full of flavours then hits you with a sharp bitterness in the end. Quality bitter but too bitter in the end for me. Still a very good one.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 5, 2012
Absolutely loved this as my best ale of the year on cask. However, disappoints a little in the bottle. Medium hoppiness, with some green fruity tones. Clean dry finish.

0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Clear golden one with a small lacing white head. Aroma& taste of some charamel and toasted grains, green apples. So, this is an easy drinkable english style Pale ale.
