Award winning new recipe. A light golden colour with a high proportion of wheat and corn giving it a clean fresh taste on top of which there is masses of hop, fruit and citrus flavours with elderflower on the nose.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
17th Feb 2012: Hand pulled pint in The Wrekin, Wellington, Shropshire. Clear and almost bright golden body with a small but full head of white bubbles that tried to hang around. Weak nose: some floral hop content, but no malt notes I could find. The flavours were fruity and floral: again not overly strong and with no malt input I could detect: the high proportion of corn and wheat might have something to do with the lack of maltiness of course. Pleasant enough, but not what I want from a pint of Ale

Light citrus with strong floral hoPs, leading to a strong bitter flavour...quite good.

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2012
Big coarseish offwhite head. Hazy orangey body. Herbal floral aroma with orangey dusty notes. Dry-sweetish dusty floral orangey taste with resiny gooseberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, dusty mouthfeel. Dry floral herbal orangey aftertaste with oily gooseberry notes. Nice, and highly drinkable. (0.568l cask at St. Urho’s Pub, Helsinki.)

Draft pint, clear gold with citrus notes and clean bitterness. A reliable session ale in my book. Try i!

This is ok. At station pub in kings heath. You know it... on the A435. Decent flavour, taste etc... if not spectacular.

Erasmus_ro (2085) - Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Cask @ Gallows Bird. Pours a hale yellow with a soapy, white head. Aroma is odd, like a freshly-opened pack of Leaf collectible ice hockey cards. Taste is mild, some biscuity malts, some slight tones of wheat.
