Pours golden with a light white head that retreats to the edge of the glass. Aroma is fruity with fresh cut grass. Taste is fairly simple lightly hopped I get a strong apple taste initially and to aftertaste. I liked this one, simple but refreshing.

ManVsBeer (8689) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
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.

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.

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.
