From a 500ml bottle. Clear bright golden appearance with a small lasting white head. Nose has light cereal malts, orangey citrus and floral hops. Palate is subdued and refreshingly crisp making for high sessionabililty. Mild-moderate bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (10461) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Keg at The Colston Yard, Bristol. Gold with fizzed white head. Served very cold. Sharp, thinnish malts with a metallic note and wed cardboard hints. Heavily carbonated really, slightly too much for me. Fruity, slightly orange finish.
