A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

Light hoppy citrussy. Attended a demo of Bath Ales most popular beers and thought this would be a bit tame and organic but after tasting I dont care how they brew it, this is out and out my favourite and has been my preferred tipple ever since. Plenty of hoppy flavours, light enough to drink by itself or with a light meal. Thouroughly enjoyable beer and always on my shopping list at Tescos.

Perpignan73 (36) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2016 Bottled 500ml, chilled pored at home. Attractive clear pale golden colour; minimal head; amazing noise, stewed apple almost like desert wine sweet, malty with a hint of grass; thin; fine carbonation; predominantly butterscotch palate with a bitter sweet finish leaving an apple aftertaste. Disagree with a lot of the recent reviews. The nose and palate are different and more interesting than a lot of standard propoments of the type.

LazyPyro (597) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a one finger short lasting white head. Aroma of sweetish grainy/bready malt and some hops. Taste is fairly well balanced between malt and hops, bitter and sweet, bit of citrus/hops in the background. Smooth oily texture. Nice but a somewhat average beer
