On tap at Hot Belly Momas in Peterborough. Pale gold in colour. Aroma was grainy, some corn and minor floral hops. Flavour was of corn again, grain, some malt. Crisp mouthfeel. Watery body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a harsh bitterness, thin.

Thanks Jercraigs for sharing another beer:) This was a very pale yellow with a faint nose and flavours of fruit. Pretty average stuff.

pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, and reminiscent of their Northumberland Ale making me wonder if it is the same yeast. This is a plus for me since I am a fan of the Northumberland. Relatively bland flavour profile, with the fruity notes the dominant flavour with a touch of malt. Palate is light but appropriate. Meh... accomplishes what it set out to do nicely.

Clear gold w/ slight amber hue. White head. Light malt aroma w/ some notes faint but fresh hops cutting through. Light feel. Sweet, crisp flavour w/ a light to moderate bitterness. Unfortunately it also had that Church Key canned mushroom house character.
