On cask at the Watford Real Ale Festival, pours a very pale clear yellow with a slightly off-white head. The smell is citrus, light grain. The taste is crisp citrus ending dry. Very light in body with mild carbonation. Solid stuff.

foxo82 (815) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Hand pulled at The Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Golden ale with a hoppy/car park stairwell aroma. Dry citrus taste that lingers but very thin and watery. Ok.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Half-pint at the 2014 Lincoln Beer Festival. Light amber with a white covering of bubbles. The strong floral hop nose carried on into the flavour of this semi-bitter brew. Easy to drink, doesn’t test your taste buds too greatly, but a pleasant blend of hoppiness that sits together nicely and leaves a mini-dry finish in the mouth.

Cask at CBC, London on 12th April 2013. Clear gold with white film of part-lacing foam. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Hops and berry fruits dominate the in-mouth experience with delicate strawbery note and mildly savoury touches present. Fruity finish with berries and white wine. Light mouthfeel and body.
