Bottle from Asda, Keighley. Golden-orange with a small head and some carbonation. Has a bitterness but it is its English hop fruitiness that provides the dominant character, albeit a mild one.

dogbomb (1021) - ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Yellow gold with a white head which fades to a thin scum. Lemon, lime and lots of citrus hops up the nose. Light, breezy, but hoppy with more fruity citrus and a back cereal note. Rather delicious easy drinkern which delivers mouthful after mouthful.

biggles231 (16) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
A light mild, with a subtle but not insignificant flavour thats not dictated by either the alcohol or hop rate. A rarity, but a good one.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Cask @ brewpub. Golden-straw colour. Not much aroma. Straw malt character, a little bit biscuity but with some mushroomy hop finisih. Fairly straightforward.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Cask @ Black Bull, Coniston. Gold and bright with a band of lace. Watery, nothing aroma but is clean. Body too. Not the tastiest beer but has a lingering bitter finish. Could use more malt character but what is there is pleasant, mild, and sweet. Clean with a decent finish.
