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.

Craft. Clear pale gold beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Good hops - floral with nice juicy lemon and a trace of orange. Light dry finish. Like this! Light but with good flavour and so very drinkable.

Fin (7421) - 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
