COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicious hoppy blonde ale. The beer is crisp, dry and refreshing with a delicate grapefruit flavour. An appealing ale for both bitter and lager drinkers.

JorgeLee (1377) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Cask at the Spaniards NW3. Pale amber colour, flat, not much head, slightly cloudy. Not in great condition to be honest, ever so slightly sour hint. Basically like drinking bitter back in the bad old days. Even allowing for that, there didn’t seem to be a lot going on. I may retry if there’s nothing else on the bar...

Leighton (13576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Cask at the Old White Lion - East Finchley. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma has citric hops and damp grains.light sweet flavor with leafy hops, mild astringency, more grain, some hay and husk. Light bodied, softly carbonated; not great condition. Grainy finish, some further citric hops, leaves. Poor.

Cask @ the Sun in Camberwell, large sample, served in a pint. Almost clear golden color, short head. Aroma of citrussy hop, slight grapefruit, bit grainy malt. Soft bitter taste, slight fruity sourness coming through of the citrussy hop, just slight malty sweetness. Easy drinker, refreshing. Decent stuff.
