Cask; Regular.
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.

Half pint on gravity served at room temperature and found well kept at The St Albans Beer Festival. Golden body with a low layer of foam. Aroma of citrus and red berries. Moderate fruitiness in taste with hints of strawberries, sweet caramel and malt. Lingering bitter end (27.09.2006).

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2006
Fumbling for superlatives...one of the most delectable specimens It’s been my pleasure to sample recently. Rarely re-order the same beer of an evening, but had to make an exception for this. Hazy straw settling into clear gold. Creamy white froth. Spicy hops, vanilla, honey, bread. Beautifully balanced ale.

TBone (11920) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2006
Cask@Northern Bar, Edinburgh. Pale yellow, creamy off-white head. Sweetish and honeyish hoppy nose. Starts watery and a sweet fruity. Then very good grassy hoppy flavor, which even multiplies in the aftertaste.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 7, 2006
I don’t usually like the lighter ales, but I was convinced by the landlord of the Cellar Bar in St Andrews, that I should try. I wasn’t disappointed. Lots of fruity aroma, carried through into the taste, citrusy, got the elderflower too. Very hoppy, lasts well.

NIce flavour, but too bitter to be a blonde perhaps, but it is some times sweet, nice beer in few words, bubbling head.
