danlo (1141) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, foam white head and aroma of grain & spicy hop. Taste is malt & grain, with a metallic tang, and some woody & spicy hop bitterness. LIght bodied, medium carbonation, dry lingering metallic bitter finish. OK.

Bottle - Dark blonde colour, constant carbonation. Slight head quick to disappear. Not much of an aroma or taste. Drinkable though.

It’s hazy, warm golden with a white, creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, fruit and hops. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, fruit, citrus and the slightly dry finish has a light bitterness.

Osprey87 (1625) - WALES - MAR 16, 2013
Sep 2012 - sweet and mild to start, a bit of bitterness to end. Very drinkable. Good for a bottled British bitter, would be v interested to have on cask.

Bottle from the Co-Op, Syston. Pours a dirty amber with a grassy, musty malt aroma. Dry and metallic bitterness dominates the taste. I’m a big fan of the more drinkable cask version - which is half a percent lighter and less spiky to taste.

Love my blonde beers and this easily available beer fits the bill. Has some taste and well worth buying a few so you have themto drink together

jmgreenuk (4277) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2013
Poured a clear yellow straw colour with a thin white broken head, broken lace and high carbonation. The aroma is peachy, leading to a medium bitter, malty slightly zesty flavour with some fruity notes on the palate and a mild bitter lingering aftertaste. A very drinkable summer session beer served cool.

DandyLion (517) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Pale golden colour. Very fizzy. I would say too much carbonation and the taste has too much co2. Still pleasant hoppy beer underneath but saying that on cask this is one of my faves this is very disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
