COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned. Originally brewed at Leek Brewery.
A classic blonde – clear and crisp. Blonde is mashed with a blend of lager malt and wheat for a zesty, fruity character. Hopped with only continental European varieties, it’s full of flavour and character.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2012
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a foamy, white head. Pale straw hop aroma with light hay and grass. Light to medium sweet with a rather strong bitterness. Straw and grass, light and salty dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly dry, bitter finish, lasting straw hops, mild grass and white sugars. Very decent.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
BC from the brewery. Pours straw, corkscrewing with fizz under a dense white foam. Attractive, botanical and jammy fruit on the nose with notes of lemon rind, gooseberry, matchbox, grass and flowers. Bright, excitable GA with a floral, lemongrass and lime hop character easing into an oatmeal, biscuit softness. Some dry bite to the finish. Nothing stunning but the kind of refreshing, zesty stuff I’d happily sink a few of on a hot summer’s day.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2011
Cask handpull at Five Lamps Derby. Very pale gold lasting white soft due to sparkler. Some lager type feel to it. Hoppy finish. Lager as cask conditioned ai guess. Some lime finish.

Charlieboy (57) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2011
Tasted at the 5 lamps derby, thoroughly average and disappointing beer after tasting other beers by this brewery, lacks flavour and aroma.

I loved this beer. Complex flavours. Sweet aroma with a good head. Medium body and a creamy texture. I drank this from the bottle. It has travelled well.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Smithfield, Derby, Derbyshire 06.11.10 This pours mid gold with a white rim for a head and a light film. Described as a continental style beer, I considered it to be a fairly safe but tasty enough golden beer, some light citrus fruitiness, bitter and drying at the end. A6 A4 T6 P4 Ov13 3.3
