chimpgibbon (308) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Decent golden fruity session beer. Almost pils on the nose but great zesty taste, hint of pear and plenty bitter orange/ lemon. I’d drink this over lager any day.

jjsint (771) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle at home. Dark gold, almost orange. No head, reasonable carbonation. Aroma of yeast and grassy hops, with a bit of lemon. Taste is initially sweet with some light salt /umami notes. Finish is slightly more bitter. A nice beer with a simple profile, not quite as good as I remember.

MadIndian (2380) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Golden pour. Aroma of bread, hop and caramel malt. Taste was similar except some mild grass, fruit and roast. It was ok. Again it was in my neighbors cooler so I sampled.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2011
[500ml bottle (from Millets Farm Shop, nr Abingdon) that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Light amber with a large off-white head and a slight fizz. Heavily sedimented. Lemon, malt and hay with a decent bitterness. A little creaminess in the finish. Decent enough bitter.
