A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

fairwater (133) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask @Greyfriar. Pale, clear, gold. Piney. In a lavatory block sense, but not really unpleasantly. Bit thin, bitterness that lingers, then departs. I would order it again, but not here, today, when Sound Wave is available.

Nice blonde beer with a bit of hoppy citrous flavor. Easy drinking. Easy to drink it again and again :-)
