COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

imdownthepub (10578) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottled, 330 ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Gold with white head. The aroma was fine but crikey the beer is sweet, there are heavily honeyed notes along with a perfumed, flowery hit, I was going to pour it after one mouthful, but persevered. I never really enjoyed it but did finish it.

Good aroma, good taste, decent palate. But in all, a very good beer! Definitely one of the few cases where the sum is greater than the parts! Very interesting beer.
